I’m peachy keen on organic yellow peaches! Soft and fuzzy with a deep red blush, yellow peaches are just gorgeous on the outside and luscious and sweet on the inside. The mere mention of organic yellow peaches makes my mouth water, especially when I start thinking of all the ways I could use them in recipes. I love peaches as they are for an easy portable snack so I know I’ll need to make an effort to buy extra and save some for cooking and baking (and freezing for later)!

I can’t resist throwing in a few of the simple ways I incorporate a peach each day:
- Sip a Peach Lassi made of ripe peaches blended with tart yogurt and a dash of cardamom.
- For a quick and impressive appetizer, roll peaches, rosemary and goat cheese in puff pastry and bake until golden and crispy.
- Cook ripe peaches down in a skillet with lemon zest, cinnamon and pure cane sugar for a quick and easy refrigerator jam or dessert topping.
- Tangy goat or feta cheese topped with juicy peaches and honey makes a perfect cheese course or dessert.
