As April comes to a close (already??), everyone is anticipating summer’s arrival. I’m convinced the cold weather is finally gone for good, which means bushels and barrels of delicious summer produce is being picked and sent off to markets as I sit here typing. Sweet corn, summer squash, and juicy tomatoes are starting to pop up on shelves and menus everywhere, but my absolute favorite summer crop is always one of the last ones to make an appearance.
Plump, juicy peaches are the crème de la crème of summer’s best produce. I love to eat them right out of hand, but there are so many great recipes on our site for fresh peaches. Take this pizza, for example. I bet you’ve never considered putting fruit on a pizza with tasty chicken and tangy cheese. A drizzle of balsamic reduction balances the sweet and savory flavors in this inventive pizza. Best of all, it’s ready in just 20 minutes.
