Summer: Recipes in Season
Sizzling summer heat heralds the most abundant stretch of the annual growing season. Just as late spring produce begins to wane, heat-loving summer crops show up to eagerly take their place.
Tomatoes, peppers, sweet corn, eggplant, summer squash and cucumbers fill supermarket shelves and farmers market stalls to overflowing. Stone fruits — cherries, peaches, plums, apricots — and bright, plump berries are highlight of summer's sweet fruit bounty.
