Summer Fruit: What's in Season and How to Choose it.
Have you noticed that every time you go to the store a new assortment of summer fruit has been rolled out? One of the greatest delights during summer months is the vast array of fruit. There are so many types to choose from that sometimes it can be hard to pick which fruit to put in your grocery cart.
Here today and gone tomorrow. Some summer fruits are only available for a short period to time. So be sure to gobble up the rare ones while you can. Here's a quick list of some fruits that are available from June - August.
When picking any of these fruits, make sure each has good all around color - no bruises or brown spots. Also, check the firmness. The fruit shouldn't be too hard or too soft. Plus,the better it smells, the better it tastes.
The best way to find out if a melon is ripe is to knock on it. The melon should have a hollow sound.
Summer is the perfect time to make upside down fruit cakes, fruit salads, tarts, ice cream, sorbet, and so much more.
