The Sweetness of Summer Stone Fruits

Does anyone else build an entire meal out of summer fruits? I find it hard not to insert fruit into every meal, especially when we’re in the height of the hot weather and need all the cooling, quenching refreshment we can get!

Stone fruits like peaches, nectarines and plums (and yes, even cherries!) may seem too fussy for summer snacking due to the large pits, but every juicy bite is worth it!

If you’re doing more than just snacking with stone fruits, look for freestone varieties, which have easily-removed pits.

Need some peachy keen recipe ideas? Check out a few of these favorites:

@SHANE - I think we grew so hungry looking at these recipes pics that we forgot to link them to the appropriate pages! All links should be fixed now. Let us know which one you try out!
