Let’s celebrate all the goodness of peaches in the month of August. Peaches come in different colors and acidity. You can choose from white, yellow or orange; and remember the white is less acidic than the yellow or orange. They are full of vitamin C and vitamin A. Not only are they delicious, but nutritious too.

Peaches are not just used in desserts. You can make a peach salsa, fruity chicken salad or muffins! They are in season from June to the end of August. Stop by your local produce stand or tailgate market to pick up some freshly, picked peaches for this easy, healthy Pocket Fruit Pie recipe. Enjoy!
