When it comes to summer produce, there’s a lot to be excited about—crisp wedges of watermelon at a picnic, bowls of sweet cherries waiting to be made into pie, tomatoes that actually have flavor. But we’re extra excited about the triumphant return of the peach. Lusciously sweet, hearty enough to stand up to heat and super versatile, peaches are as fab in savory dishes as they are in desserts. Here are 20 of our favorite recipes.
