In pondering the pretext for the preeminence of the peach in culinary pursuits, we’ve persistently come to one conclusion: boasting gold and red-blushed skin, heady perfume, and the promise of its sweet juice-dripping-off-your-chin goodness, peaches are simply good. And this goodness makes us want to enjoy them every day, in every form, with every meal possible.
