Celebrate the bounty of Arizona peach season with these peach-infused offerings

del Piero at Queen Creek Olive Mill

25062 S. Meridian Road, Queen Creek. (480) 888-9290 or queencreekolivemill.com

del Piero’s Peach Caponatina Marscapone Bruschetta pairs fresh-made honey marscapone cheese with a dollop of the house peach caponatina — a sweet and spicy Sicilian relish of tomatoes, peaches, green chilies, garlic, white balsamic vinegar and spices. Served on a grilled baguette slice for $1.49 each, the bruschetta comes three, five or seven pieces to an order. You can also get the caponatina with the egg and cheese frittata ($6.99) or take home a 10-ounce jar ($8.99). The relish is good on chicken, pork, scrambled eggs and grilled Italian sausage on a bun. del Piero also offers peach gelato, muffins and champagne.

Rancho de Tia Rosa

3129 E. McKellips Road, Mesa.

(480) 659-8787 or ranchodetiarosa.com

The sweetness of peaches blends subtly with the mild heat of ancho chiles in Tia Rosa’s Ancho Peach Glazed Chicken. The popular entree combines chicken glazed with a homemade peach sauce, chipotle potatoes, sautéed chili corn and fresh seasonal fruit, such as watermelon, cantaloupe and grapes, for $12.

Honey Bear’s BBQ

7670 S. Priest Drive, Tempe.

(Additional locations in Phoenix.)

(602) 702-3060 or honeybearsbbq.com

The peach cobbler at this renowned barbecue joint has been on the menu since it opened in 1986, and it’s the chain’s most popular dessert. Served in a 6-ounce cup for $2.99, it’s a proper old-fashioned cobbler with a thick, creamy filling and a from-scratch crust. The Tempe restaurant occasionally serves it with homemade ice cream (inquire about availability), but you might as well skip the ice cream since the cobbler comes out piping hot. Take-home cobblers are available for $25 (serves 10-15) or $50 (serves 20-30); call ahead to order.
