First Fruits


Picking juicy, ripe fruit is a beloved summer and fall activity. We’ve just enjoyed our first cherries of the season from our local “u-pick” orchards. We picked at least eight and a half pounds, and I think I have a good 3 hours of pitting ahead of me. Pie and preserves are on the way. What’s your favorite summertime fruit? Do you have any recipes to share?

      • The western slope of the Rockies is a famous region for stone fruits too – at least locally, but I grow ‘soft stuff’ in my yard. Short lived, but easiest are black raspberries. I think I may even have some growing through the back fence into thew alley this year!

    • That’s probably the healthiest way, Susanna. We are doing homemade vanilla ice cream today with cherries and chocolate chunks. It’s definitely not health food.
