The fuzzy peach is most closely identified with the deep South, particularly Georgia. Its juicy, sweet, fragrant flesh is a favorite in pies, pastries, and desserts, but creative chefs have found marvelous uses for the peach in a variety of savory dishes, including poultry, pork, and seafood.

In most cases, nectarines can be substituted for peaches in equal measure. When you are unsure just how many peaches are in a pound, how many cups of sliced peaches a pound yields and more, consult this list.
