We went peach picking the other day. I love going to pick-your-own farms and getting fruit fresh from the source. It is a fun activity as well as supporting local businesses. However, I tend to go a little crazy when I’m picking and always come home with more than we could ever eat in a timely fashion. Case in point: we came home with about 30 pounds of peaches. That is a lot of peaches! So of course, in between biting into a juicy peach for a snack, I’ve been hunting up some great recipes. I turned to some friends who are more talented in the kitchen than I am, as well as Pinterest, and have pulled together a great roundup of 21 peach recipes.

Confession. I have never canned anything in my life.
