Michigan peach season: Hot buttered peaches recipe
It’s finally peach season in Michigan, but it won’t last more than a couple of weeks into September! This makes it the perfect time to grab some fresh state grown peaches and get cooking before they’re gone. And with a large peach having fewer than 70 calories and 3 grams of fiber, it makes for an easy addition to any end of summer meal.
To find the perfect peach, the flesh of the fruit should have a slight give. As a tip, use your whole hand versus the fingertips to check for ripeness since the fruit bruises so easily.
