Today is Eat a Peach Day! In honor of the day, Cathie Dibert from “Green”er Acres Farm is making Peach Crisps and Peach Salsa. 
Individual Peach Crisps
4 ripe peaches, halved
4tablespoons light brown sugar
1 cup granola
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 16 pieces
1 pint vanilla ice cream (optional)
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place the peach halves, cut-side up, in a baking dish. Sprinkle each half with 1/2 tablespoon of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of granola, and 2 pieces of butter. Bake until the peaches are soft and the granola begins to brown, about 15 minutes. Transfer to individual plates, spooning the juices in the dish over each peach half. Serve with ice cream (if desired.)
Fresh Peach Salsa
from Taste of Home
4 medium peaches, peeled and pitted
2 large tomatoes, cut into wedges and seeded
1/2 sweet onion, cut into wedges
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
2 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced
2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chilies
4 teaspoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Baked tortilla chip scoops
In a food processor, combine the first five ingredients; pulse until coarsely chopped. Add chilies, vinegar, lime juice and pepper; pulse just until blended. Transfer to a serving bowl; chill until serving. Serve with chips. Yield: 4 cups.
