Georgia Peaches are Here!

In case you hadn't noticed, it's time for Georgia peaches. You may not know this (I didn't), but Georgia produces 130 million pounds of peaches, our state fruit, every year between mid-May and mid-August. I recently picked up a bunch of peaches from the good folks of Pearson Farm, so that I could partake in the beautiful bounty of this year's crop. The Pearson folks are regulars at the Saturday Farmer's Market in Decatur and they had quite the crowd at their table this weekend.

Be on the lookout here for some coming blog posts on these sweet Georgia peaches, as I got busy cooking right away with the beauties you see pictured above. I had to hurry to whip some things up as my kids went nuts and started gobbling up my peach stash. However, since it was so hot this weekend, and I was thirsty, as usual, I whipped up a quick peach margarita. More on this later, but here's a little taste.
