Virtual CSA Box: Peaches

Pin it button big

Peaches! Yes, it's peach season, and while peaches may be available year-round, shipped in from who knows where, there's nothing like a truly local, in-season peach. The best peaches are heavy and slightly soft, luscious with golden juice. The famous Frog Hollow Farm in California has peaches right now, as do many more CSAs around the country.

If you're getting fresh peaches, what are you doing with them? Eating out of hand or slicing for an after-dinner treat are both the best options, we think. But we can't pass up fresh baked goods with peaches. Here's a few recipes and tips...

VeganYumYum makes a peach upside-down cake and shows us how to slice ripe peaches. And how about this Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Balsamic Peaches - looks great to us. We also love these Late Summer Peach, Blueberry, and Thyme Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. Finish your evening with these Peaches and Herb Cocktails.

What are you doing with your peaches?
