I usually don’t mention the time of year during
these videos, since I have no way of knowing when someone will actually

with sweet, ripe, impossibly juicy peach slices? Mix in a little thyme and
black pepper to keep things interesting, and you’re looking at a very special

a 350 F. oven for a few minutes, to dry out and crisp up before you top with
the cheese. Either way, you’re in for a significantly tasty summer treat. I hope
you give this a try soon (while it’s still summer!). Enjoy!
