About the Recipe: This recipe originally came to us from the Rancho Bernardo Vons Produce department—it was a recipe recommended for white peaches which were on sale at the time. My mother made it for us, and now I make it as shown to serve to friends or family. It’s a great year-round recipe (using your preference of seasonal fresh fruit). It’s tasty and a visually appealing addition to any meal.
