At the peak of summer, its easy to eat what’s fresh and available – the markets abound with tomatoes, melons, berries, salad greens and stone fruit. Sometimes, this abundance gives us a false sense of what’s truly in season the rest of the year. By eating local and in-season, we eat produce at the peak of their flavor and the high point of their nutritional value. In all likelihood, it supplies much needed nutrients that are key for that time of year – think of the hydrating quality of watermelon on a hot summers day. So break out your gazpacho recipes and make a fruit salad and get excited that we will see beautiful new produce as we move into the fall.
