Can y'all believe that here it is at the end of southern peach season – typically mid-May through mid-August – and I have barely eaten any fresh peaches?
I don't cook with them much, mostly preferring to take them as a fruit snack really, and the past few years, I've been ordering peaches from around the south that we don't get here. Somehow I missed it this year, and last year even. It was here and now it's gone, although you can still find some peaches around town, mostly from California. No doubt they're fine peaches too, but you can't match a local peach, and by local I mean the south – Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina, of course.
