Summer = Fruit

One of my favorite things about summer is the fruit. I get a lot of it at the weekly farmer's market where it's an experience to shop. I found a new variety of strawberries called the Albion and it was the sweetest I've ever tasted. Heirloom tomatoes have recently come in and I've been enjoying them, too. You must savor those tomatoes because you can only get them July through early October. But what a treat! I recommend them in any recipe. And on a hot day, cold watermelon sure tastes good. I hope you are enjoying the summer fruits. Nectarines are a particular favorite of mine. Which fruit is your favorite?

I have eaten enough Bing cherries to become a cherry. I love them for snacks. Grapes too. I don't want to make a pie with the cherries, just love to eat them raw.
