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.
