August was established as National Peach Month in 1982 by President Ronald Reagan. While peaches originated in China, California grows 175 varieties of peaches and produces more than 50% of the U.S. peach supply.[1]. Fresh peaches are at their peak from June to the end of August, however frozen peaches can be enjoyed year-round. Just thaw frozen peaches for a few minutes for a quick and convenient solution for any recipe that calls for fresh peaches. Try your favorite variety in these recipes at any time of day.
