Summer time is the perfect time to enjoy peach cobbler for dessert. In these warm months, stone fruits like peaches (an August Foods of the Month) are in their peak season making them popular in grocery stores. These fruits are full of nutrients to help lower cholesterol and are high in vitamins and minerals like vitamin C and potassium. When planning your next grocery list, include fresh peaches to make this healthier version of a traditional peach cobbler!
