The peach is from a deciduous tree that bears edible juicy fruits including nectarines.  While peaches have fuzzy skins, the nectarine has a smooth, glossy skin.  Peaches and nectarines are of the same species, and yet in stores, they’re regarded as different fruits.  Interesting tid-bit (??):  The pit or stone as it is referred to, has a similar taste to that of almonds.  For this reason it is used to make a ‘cheaper’ version of marzipan (a confection made with ground almonds, sugar, and honey) called persipan.  Bonus for people with nut allergies.  Thank you Wikipedia!!

The following are the peach recipes I experimented with: 

Peach & Goat Cheese Tartlets

Peach Caprese Salad
