When I think of August and summer fruit harvesting, I think of peaches. After all, August is National Peach Month. Biting into a super ripe peach, juices dripping down my chin, on my hands, over my wrist and all the way to my elbow. It's all part of the love for my favorite fruit. While nothing beats a freshly picked peach, the recipe choices are abundant. Everything from appetizers, salad, main dishes, desserts and even beverages. Peaches are plentiful in August and so are the ways to use them.
