The late spring and early summer air seems to smell sweeter than at other times of the year because that’s when fresh peaches begin to show up in the markets. I imagine the air delicately imbued with the odor of succulent juices incased in the fuzzy fruit. I smile when I see the first locally grown peaches in the farm stands and on the market shelves knowing that I can now make some of my family’s favorite treats.
