Few foods evoke the lush, golden pleasures of summer as much as peaches do. Whether it’s an early-season peach from Fredericksburg or a Fairfield peach in August, biting into the juicy fruit is like the perfect summer: sweet, surprising and a little out of control. While peaches are available, it’s time to incorporate them into salads, main dishes and delicious desserts.

Peaches do best when they have a cold winter and a hot summer, and while Texas certainly checked that first box this year, milder than usual temperatures in June have meant that many Texas peaches are just now hitting their peak, and good peaches are ready to be eaten, cooked and, in some cases, frozen for year-round enjoyment.
