Summer is peach season, so we’ve partnered with chefs from Johnson & Wales University to bring you these delicious peach recipes!

How to Wash a Peach

1. Brush away any visible dirt or residue

2. Fill a bowl (or partially fill a kitchen sink) with cold water.

3. Place peach in water, gently rubbing with your hands or a clean dish rag to avoid bruising.

4. Rinse in cool running water.

5. Dry gently with a clean kitchen towel or paper towel, or lay on a clean towel to dry.
