WHAT TO PICK FOR A PROPERLY STOCKED SUMMERTIME FRIDGE
A COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF IN-SEASON PRODUCE, PLUS CREATIVE RECIPE IDEAS
There’s someone right now standing over a warm basket of peak season peaches, most likely biting the ripe flesh and letting the sweet juice drip down their chin.
The question is...why isn’t that you? Summer is in full swing, and that means fresh produce is at its prime. No matter what climate or zip code you live in, your local farmer’s market or small grocer is brimming with a rainbow of plants to play within your kitchen.
Our advice? Go in and allow the colors, smells, and seller’s charisma entice you into buying something you may never have tried or tasted. That’s how we wound up toting a bowling ball-sized melon, a rare variety sweetly named Sugar Queen. The tart, pear-like flavor was well worth the unexpected arm workout.
Bring this list along to remind you to sop up every bit of summer’s bounty. And enjoy all of the berry-stained lips and sticky chins that follow.
