Ontario Peaches

One of the best treats of summer... in my opinion. 
Their juicy halves are almost blushing for the camera.
Ontario varieties include Harrow Diamond, Garnet Beauty, Early Redhaven, Redhaven, Vivid, Loring and Harrow Beauty.
Peaches fall into the category of being "cling-stone" or "free-stone," pertaining to whether the hard centre is easily removable or not. 
I personally enjoy working with free-stones for baking and cooking, but many of my favourite eating peaches are of the other variety. 
Stone fruits like apricots, nectarines, plums and peaches are so delicious, but short lived! Stock up now and get canning & preserving for the winter.
