Peaches are a juicy, delicious fruit. They do well in desserts, partly because they are strong enough to be baked or sauteed.
Peaches are in season from May to Late September. They are at their best in Lexington from July to September.
In these winter and spring months, when we are deprived of fresh peaches, frozen are a great substitute. They are often good quality and do well in most recipes. For some desserts, you can take them straight from the bag to the recipe without defrosting.
