Riesling Peaches

Photo: Hector Sanchez; Stylist: Buffy Hargett

These sweet summer gems pair perfectly with cured meats over torn bread with a little Dijon mustard, and work double-duty as a final flourish spooned over our irresistible homemade Buttermilk Ice Cream. Or make a simple peach shortcake by sandwiching the peaches in a warm scone with sweetened whipped cream. Swap in any summer fruit and 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil or 1 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary for the thyme, if desired.
