I love going to local orchards and farms to pick fruit and berries but you’ll never catch me picking peaches. My granny Brock took me to a peach orchard as a child and it seemed like we were there for hours picking one of my favorite summer fruits. At the end of our adventure my little legs and arms were itching madly from the peach fuzz and I’ve never wanted a shower so badly in my life. I guess you could say I’m a little traumatized.

While I won’t gather the fruit myself I do still love eating a good peach  and always relish in making a cobbler. I recently worked with food writer Conne Ward-Cameron on a peach feature for the AJC and thought I’d share a link to her story and recipes below. The images in this post will run in tomorrows edition of the AJC.

If you can’t stand the thought of baking or cooking in this heat you’ll love Conne’s recipe for peach gazpacho. And if that’s too fancy for you be sure to visit a local farmers market and enjoy the fruit pealed and sliced, my favorite.  My granny Brock always indulged me with food when I visited her home in South Georgia. I remember fondly the juice running over the rings on her fingers and the wrinkles of her hands as she peeled peaches for me.
