Cherry Creek Orchards
It’s June y’all, and peaches have arrived at the market! Our friends at Cherry Creek Orchards located in Pontotoc, MS have returned with sweet offerings. Local peaches are picked when ripe, so they’re fresh, juicy and delish - come get your peach fix! When buying peaches, look for those that are firm or just starting to soften up, depending on when you plan to eat them. Store them at room temperature away from direct light until fully ripe. Once soft, put them in your fridge and eat within five days for maximum freshness and flavor. If you’re like us, you may get excited while buying and purchase more than you can eat. Luckily, peaches are great to freeze so don’t be afraid to stock up and keep enjoying them all summer long.
