You know summer is here with the arrival of the most treasured fruits of all: stone fruits. Peaches, nectarines, and apricots are all coming into season, packed with vitamins A, C and E, as well as dietary fibre, potassium and antioxidants.
But peaches, with their delicate blushed skin and creamy flesh, top the list as perhaps the most delectable of them all. Nothing fills a kitchen with more sweetness than the heady perfume of a fully ripened peach.
Make the most of the bounty by displaying these beauties’ velvety perfection on platters in dining rooms while serving our SoupedUp Peach Blossom dessert to complete the sensory experience for your residents.
