NATIONAL PEACHES ‘N’ CREAM DAY
Observed annually on June 21, it is National Peaches ‘n’ Cream Day. Peaches ‘n’ Cream sounds like a perfect way to start summer solstice. Actually, it sounds like the perfect way to end summer solstice as well!
(See National Daylight Appreciation Day for the meaning of summer solstice.)
Peaches ‘n’ Cream is a simple, traditional and delicious summertime dessert. Of course, the Georgia peach is in season during the month of June, as are those grown in Florida, California and South Carolina. Make some homemade vanilla ice cream to sweeten the deal and your peaches ‘n’ cream will be all the cooler.
It’s interesting to note that doctors theorize Typhoid Mary may have spread the bacteria through cut up raw peaches in frozen ice cream. So, wash those hands vigorously!
