3 Peach Recipes for National Peach Month

peach-recipes-400x400

It doesn’t get much better than biting into a fresh, juicy summer peach. And, we get to celebrate 31 days of peachy goodness during the month of August, in honor of National Peach Month.

These slighty-furry fruits are a good source for vitamin C, and make a great pie filling, oatmeal topping, or iced tea garnish.

And, while the band The Presidents of the United States of America created a great ode to the fruit with their hit song Peaches, we think these three delicious peach recipes do it more justice!
