Peaches are at the height of their flavor in June and July. Our area of southern New Jersey is known as peach country. They are plentiful at our farm markets. You see peach trees everywhere as you drive around the neighborhood. We picked up loads of white and yellow peaches and came up with this caramelized peach salad.

Peaches are low in calories, packed with minerals, and are a good source of antioxidants, Vitamin C and Vitamin A.

They are also a delicious, juicy treat.
