5 Fresh Peach Recipes to Kick Off Peach Party

Each July, our mission is to bring to you the ultimate peach experience, and this year is no
exception. What can you expect at our Peach Party, an annual celebration of the fruit? The Prima® Peach is king all month long, with the much-anticipated arrival of the sweetest peaches of the season filling our stores. It’s so sweet that its flavor inspires recipes throughout DLM, such as the BLPeach, a sweet take on the traditional BLT, as well as many fresh peach recipes, like the ones below, that you can make at home.

To find such a peach to live up to our expectations, we scour the U.S. for a tree-ripened peach with a high brix—its natural sweetness. This year, that search took us back to California where the Gerawan family grows Prima® Peaches near the Fresno area. The peaches are hand-packed on the same day they’re harvested and carefully handled to protect the fruit from bruising.

Now, back to the fresh peach recipes—check out some of our favorite ways to make the most of the sweet Prima® Peaches streaming into DLM all month long (in addition to just biting in and enjoying, of course)!
