Note: You can reduce your own balsamic vinegar on the stovetop until it is syrupy or take a shortcut and buy balsamic glaze that is already reduced for you. I like to keep a bottle in the fridge all the time. Makes great caprese salads, too!

    What perfect timing! Peaches are super cheap right now and I’ve been picking some up every week and not knowing what to do with them.
