Need another reason to love summer? Here is a great way to enjoy fresh peaches by the peck.
Peaches made their appearance in the New World when the Spanish brought them to the coast of Georgia in the 16th century.
Few foods are as synonymous with summer as peaches—the colorful, slightly fuzzy fruits with a sweet scent and sweeter taste. The Chinese domesticated peaches millennia ago, and the fruits made their appearance in the New World when the Spanish brought them to the coast of Georgia in the 16th century. Peaches are now a major commercial crop in several states. Try serving this refreshing peach salsa with grilled chicken or fish at your next cookout.
