Today is the first day of summer, and June 21 is celebrated each year as National Peaches ‘N’ Cream Day. Time to celebrate with some delicious peaches and cream recipes!
What better way is there to honor the first day of the summer solstice than with this summer time fresh fruit!
The traditional combo of sweet fresh peaches with a dollop of cream on top is one of the most widely-eaten fruity desserts.
Peaches and cream is a simple and easy summer dessert that takes me back to my childhood. It was a dessert that we often finished our meals with and I love it to this day.
Georgia peaches are in season this month, as well as those that are grown in Florida, South Carolina and California.
This fruity summer dessert is especially popular in the Southern United States, but it is eaten all the world round – especially during the summer months.
May is the beginning of peach season and it continues all the way through until late September.
