The stone fruit season is never long enough. Peaches and Nectarines are just two of the reasons why. Peaches are a good source of Vitamins A and C. They can be enjoyed fresh over cereal or even with ice cream if you’re feeling decadent. Just be sure that when you select your Peach, it’s firm and full and springs back slightly when touched.
Nectarines look very similar to Peaches and are actually from the same species. You can tell them apart because Peaches have fuzz and nectarines don’t. Nectarines are an excellent source of Vitamin C and moderate in fibre. Tasty by themselves or together, you can poach them, grill them, bake them or stew them. Yum!
