It’s just isn’t summer without a Peach Cobbler! Enjoy this easy recipe this weekend.  We even have a few tips to pick just the right peaches!

How To Choose the Perfect Peach

Peaches do not get sweeter once they are picked. They do get softer and juicer but never sweeter. That is why it is important to avoid rock hard peaches that were picked when they were still green.

Look for peaches that show a background of color; yellow or creamy with a rosy blush on their cheeks. Avoid peaches with green undertones, they were picked too early.

Look for peaches with smooth, unwrinkled skin with no blemishes and or bruises.

Choose peaches that give slightly at the seam when pressed with your thumb even though the rest of the peach is firm.Leave peaches at room temperature a day or so to soften. Then store them in the refrigerator. They will keep for 3- 5 days.

Look out for peaches with tan circles, an early sign of decay.
