Labor Day weekend is just ahead and it’s known to be the last big hurrah of the summer. With that in mind we wanted to make certain that we “cooked” up the very best recipes for your barbecue weekend. Ditch the pies, cookies and other sugary treats and opt for this Farm Fresh Peach Tart, which is truly a slice of heaven.
The key to this recipe is the ripe succulent peaches that are overflowing at the supermarket and local farmstands. I sourced the peaches for this recipe from Ela Family Farms in Hotchkiss, CO and boy can you tell that these peaches didn’t travel very far!
Whether buying peaches from your farmer or grocery store, the key is knowing which ones to choose. A quick tip for picking peaches is to use your schnoz. Yes, your sniffer! A peach is ripe and ready to be eaten when you can smell it’s sweet ripe fragrance.
We hope you enjoy this decadent guilt-free treat. Please share this recipe with your family and friends and spread the love.

To a long and blissful summer weekend,
