Texas Hill Country peaches, in season from early May through late August, are among life’s greatest simple pleasures. Whether you eat these flavorful, juicy, golden-pink summer gems by themselves or combined with other ingredients in savory and sweet dishes, you can’t go wrong. The only mistake you can make is not indulging in this exquisite fruit as much as possible during the few months it’s available every year.
TexasHillCountry.com asked Chef Jordan Muraglia, co-owner of Vaudeville in Fredericksburg, how he likes to serve local peaches. He shared this easy-to-follow, three-part recipe for peach panna cotta topped with peach sorbet and garnished with ginger tuile. With Hill Country temperatures soaring into the 90s or even triple digits some days, this peachy panna cotta and sorbet make the perfect light and cool dessert for the sweltering summertime.
