You Can't Beat Fresh Peaches.

It's that time of the year for fresh peaches to be consumed.  They come from several states but the two best known for fresh peaches are Georgia and Colorado.

Now I like fresh ripe peaches no matter where they come from but you can't beat "Palisade Peaches" from Palisade, Colorado.  They have to be the juiciest peaches you can find.  It's probably a good idea to use one of those "Lobster Bibs" or you'll have juice running down your chin and all over your clothes.

I tell you people wait all year for the new crop to come in and start selling.  These peaches from western Colorado are the best in my humble opinion.

Now what can you do with fresh peaches?  The answer is all kinds of things; from the simplest dish of sliced peaches in a little sugar topped with ice cream to a warm peach cobbler.  They're great just eating one plain.

Be sure to take the time to look at a few fresh peach recipes and then try a couple.  I've got two this week that I think you will find quite tasty.  Tomorrow's recipe of "Grilled Marinated Fresh Peaches" will go well with any grilled dinner you might want to cook.  Then on Thursday, I have a recipe for a "Fresh Peach Pie" that will please you whether you use a bought pie crust or make one from scratch.

I don't have a lot to say about fresh peaches as they are such a simple fruit.  So "Happy Cooking" and be sure to eat some peaches.  If you get the chance, be sure and try those "Palisade Peaches" too.
