Not a particularly English ingredient but we love it all the same. Peaches are a stunning, fragrant summer fruit. Although the feeling of biting into your first truly ripe peach of the year is pretty unmatchable. They are really versatile and work as well in sweet as savoury dishes. One of my favourite summer salads is a ball of good quality mozzarella torn over a few sliced peaches, maldon salt, some good olive oil and a few shredded leaves of mint. Try them chargrilled with a bitter leaf salad and a dressing of sweet honey. Or stuff them amaretti biscuits and bake them. Roast them in butter and honey with a few sprigs of them and eat with some nice ice cream? Make sure you enjoy them while they’re around.
