We found just the antidote to the wintertime blues—canned peaches. These aren’t those limp, pale slices you usually find in grocery stores. These are tree-ripened, golden halves from nearby orchards that have been processed so we can enjoy them all year long.

For a splurge, we turn to Toigo Orchards Bourbon Peaches, pictured, $15.99, from Shippensburg, PA, available at area Whole Foods.

We also really like the canned peaches in light or heavy syrup ($3.50) from Baugher’s Fruit Market (289 W. Main St., Westminster, 410-848-7490). You have to take a country drive to get there. But visiting the family-farm store with all manner of produce is sure to boost your spirits, too.

LOVIN’ FROM THE OVEN: Baked peaches are easy and delicious. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place canned peach halves in a baking dish. Place a teaspoon of brown sugar inside each half and dot with butter. Bake for 12 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired. Adapted from cooks.com.
