Peaches in August

There’s just something about a peach that makes summertime dishes that much more flavorful. These sweet, juicy fruits are at their peak of production and freshness from June to the end of August each year. In 2017, total U.S. peach production was 690,100 tons from 92,750 acres of bearing peach trees. Not only are peaches refreshing, but they are also high in vitamins A, C, E, and K. Share with Cooperator readers your favorite recipe using this fabulous fruit. Send us your favorite peach recipes—desserts, main dishes, salads, and more. The person submitting the recipe judged best will be named “Cook of the Month” for the August Cooperator and receive $10. Others sending recipes chosen for publication will receive $5, and each winner will also receive a special “What’s Cookin’?” certificate.

Monday, July 8, is the deadline for your peach recipes.

Don't forget: Only recipes that include complete, easy-to-follow instructions will be considered for publication. Several recipes are disqualified because they do not contain all the information that we feel we needed to prepare the dishes successfully. Recipes featured in "What's cookin'?" are not independently tested, so we must depend on the accuracy of the cooks sending them. Always use safe food-handling, preperation, and cooking procedures.

Send your entries to: Recipes, Tennessee Cooperator, P.O. Box 3003, LaVergne, TN 37086. You can submit more than one recipe in the same envelope.  You can also e-mail recipes to:

Be sure to include your name, address, telephone number, and the Co-op with which you do business. It's important that your Co-op be included because we want to give it recognition if your recipe is printed. Recipes that appear in the "What's cookin'?" column will also be published on Tennessee Farmers Cooperative's Web site at
