Eat a perfect peach under a punishing sun, and you’ll experience the fruit at its messy, dripping, sugar-bright best. Rinse your sticky chin, and understand that no melon can compete, no apricot, no blackberry, though they will try…

The addition of sugar helps; so, too, do a dash of lemon juice and a light sprinkle of nutmeg, which offers a slight bitterness to offset the sweet. Add a crown of vanilla ice cream for a perfect diner-style, à la mode effect.
