Sweet and succulent, peaches are America's favorite fruit. In this book of original recipes, peaches maintain their starring role in desserts, such as Sumptuous Peach Ice Cream, Peach Schnappy CrÃ¨me BrÃ»lÃ©e, and Peach Upside-Down Cake with Rum Cream. But the fruit adds new character depth to other dishes--Buttermilk Peach Muffins and Blackberry Peach French Toast for breakfast, Peach Bruschetta and Chilled Peach Soup as appetizers, and Smoke-Rubbed Skirt Steak with Peach Chive Butter and Spicy Pork Spareribs with Peach Glaze as main courses at dinner. A variety of recipes for beverages--from Sparkling Peach Lemonade to Peach Crantini--are included as refreshing accompaniments.
