Nothing says “summer” better than the juice of a fresh peach running down your chin! Perhaps the most celebrated of BC’s soft fruits is the peach, which has grown in the Okanagan since the 1890s. With all soft fruits thriving in heat, the southern Okanagan orchards are ideal growing conditions. This area is one of the few regions in the world this far north that successfully grows peaches. Traditionally, you’ll see peaches in jams, jellies and pies but this recipe takes peaches and mixes them with craft beer and jalapenos for a winning combination. Serve it with some taco chips and you’ll still have it running down your chin.
