10 Peach–O–Rama Recipes

Cooking with the best peaches of the summer

July 14, 2022  |   by Brooklynn Johnson

It’s the juiciest, sweetest peach of the summer, and it’s all I want to eat from mid-July to the end of August. If you know, you know. And if you don’t…head to your nearest Metropolitan Market ASAP and remedy that. Now let’s get one thing straight: there’s no bad way to enjoy a Peach–O–Rama peach, but it’s fun to mix things up a bit. Here are some recipes inspired by everyone’s favorite stone fruit.

This three-ingredient appetizer comes together in no time – start with the fresh–made peach salsa from Metropolitan Market’s produce department.

Heirloom Tomatoes and Peach Salad

This is a great go-to for August, when local heirloom tomatoes are at their best and brightest. The secret ingredient that takes everything up a level? Urfa Biber chili flakes, a sun–dried chili pepper from Turkey.

Lamb Kabobs with Grilled Peaches

Grilling peaches, or really any fruit, turns up its juiciness and sweetness. I love how it complements the savory lamb in these crowd–pleasing kabobs.

Peach–O–Rama Sheet-Pan Pizza

This is a great recipe for a summer day that leans on the chillier side. A focaccia-style pizza, it’s topped with balsamic-tossed peaches, red onion, and goat cheese. And Metropolitan Market’s ready–to–roll pizza dough is a great time saver – find it in the prepared foods department.

Grilled Peach Ice Cream Sundae

This is by far the best thing you’ll ever make with four ingredients. It’s my “I want to impress people” dessert during the summer, and it never lets me down. Make sure you’ve got a good balsamic vinegar!

Grandma’s Peach Pie

All credit goes to Grandma Dora on this one. It’s one of the simplest, prettiest pies you’ll ever make, and it really highlights the quality of the in-season peaches.

Fresh Peach Bellini

Peach juice is okay in a bellini, but fresh–blended peach puree? Peach–O–Rama peach puree?! You’ll never be satisfied with just juice again.
