FOOD HOLIDAY: Celebrate National Peach Month With Fresh Peach Recipes

Each week for the past five weeks, we’ve been buying a box of peaches from Trader Joe’s. Sweet and juicy, they are grown by farmers who should take pride in producing such nice peaches.

August is National Peach Month. Brush up on your peach facts and trivia:

Peaches originated in China, traveled west over the silk roads to Persia, were brought to Greece by Alexander the Great and were introduced to America by the French. The French brought them to Louisiana, and the English colonists brought them to the Jamestown and Massachusetts colonies.

    We end with a lovely quote from 17th-century poet Andrew Marvell:

    The nectarine, and curious peach, / Into my hands themselves do reach; / Stumbling on melons, as I pass, / Ensnared with flowers, I fall on grass.
