Get Fresh: Peaches
This fruit is freshest in the summer months. Learn how to pick, use and store peaches:
Smell them before you buy -- aroma is the best indicator of sweetness.
Squeeze them -- their flesh should give slightly.
Ripen them, if necessary, in a paper bag set out at room temperature.
Store ripe fruit in the refrigerator in a plastic bag.
Serve them at room temperature -- warmth brings out their flavor.
