Step 1: Acquire apple
Step 2: Eat apple

Why mess with perfection?

How do you make the most of seasonal fruit? you eat it

berries are great in salads, granola, dessert, lemonade, juice
melons are great in salads, on their own, they easily replace tomatoes in green salad recipes, go well with cheese
I can get a lot of stuff year round because I know enough farmers, but the highlight of my year is melon season because I make a number of Popsicle, juices and other drinks and it's just the yummiest.

Strawberry rhubarb pie!

Cut a pear in half, scoop out the core. Fill hole with goat cheese, wrap whole thing with bacon. Put in oven for 25 mins at 375. Drizzle honey all over it and eat.

Jams, jellies, and preserves.

Angel food cake and homemade whipped cream with a touch of vanilla in it is the least involved way.

Making rohlicky cookies using fresh berries is a great way to preserve their flavor for a while.

The banks of the Arkansas river are covered with blackberry brambles.  So usually we go down there with some buckets and eat blackberries until crippling diarrhea prevents us from picking more.

that is tasty.

I also love wine-poached pears. Especially if you use a good local fruit house apple or pear wine.

We have oranges and lemons growing in the yard.  Turns out marmalade is really farking easy.  You basically cut them up and boil them with as much or little sugar as you care to.  We throw in some fresh habanero peppers in.

Homemade marmalade is vastly superior to storebought.  Even if you have to buy your oranges.

Mmmmmm.....seasonal fruit? Like Shamrock shakes?

Or maybe rooty-tooty fruity ritas?

I like an ice cold zimmer with a shot of cahmbord and a kirshwassser shot to go with the thong dancers at the Silverado!

WOOO! WORK THAT BANANA!

Rhubarab. (not sure if fruit)
Choke Cherries (Not sure if fruit)
Huckleberries (Are berries considered fruit)

I don't really have any recipes but when pomegranates are in season, I buy like a billion of them and freeze the seeds.  They keep forever and they taste really good frozen and I don't have to dream of winter all year long.

mmmmpomegranate

I do something similar, but instead of cooking the bell peppers in with the salsa I hollow them out, keeping the lid in tact.  Fill the peppers with the salsa mixture, and replace the top.  Cover them in tin foil.  Start up the charcoal grill then when the coals are ready put the peppers in with the coals and let them roast for about 30 minutes.  It usually turns out awesome!

Our apricot trees flowered so beautifully this year -- I hope we get a crop.  Last year, due to the early thaw, we had bupkis.  Canned apricots, apricot jam, dried apricots -- they are so darn expensive up here, even in season, I love growing our own.  We apple, peach, pear and plum trees, too, but the apricots are my favorite.  Apricot brandy cake.

Jam.

Raspberries soaked in vodka with sugar, left to age for about 3 months.

It's called "Ruby Demon" and it's wonderful.

I need to hurry up and grab some raspberries.

*drool*

Caprese bruschetta is delicious.  But, since I'm often without fresh mozzarella, I'll just toast up some croutes and top 'em with sliced 'maters and whatever cheese I have on hand (my go-to is feta, since I almost always have that) and, of course, the balsamic reduction works wonders.

It's some of the greatest late night snack food in the world.

I've never used the balsamic reduction on bruschetta, I just found that picture first.  I do use a balsamic reduction on salmon though, it's farking terrific.

The only fruit my toddler son will eat. I have tried everything else. Apples, grapes, bananas, raw, cooked, smoothied, nope. Seriously, what kind of a kid doesn't even like watermelon? But for some reason, clementines are it.
 
2013-05-09 04:08:12 PM
The only herbs that seem to like it in my garden are sage, mint and lavender. Any recipe suggestions would be most welcome.

Have you tried rosemary?  Hard not to be able to grow that stuff.

Plus, it's delicious on potatoes and chicken and so forth.

/another personal favorite is dill

Tried rosemary, oregano and basil.  I have the world's blackest thumbs.  Maybe it's worth another try.  I do love pesto.

Blueberry-Peach Cobbler.  Yes, seasonal.  Also, Pear Tart.

Or cut in half and fill the core with mayo and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.

Pear salad.  farking delicious with grilled meats.

Cherry Bounce. First thing I am going to make as soon as cherries are in season and I can't wait!

GladGirl: Strawberry rhubarb pie!


I am so glad it only took three posts to get this in here.
 
2013-05-09 04:50:32 PM
1 orange quartered, 2 limes halved, 2 lemons halved, 1 cup strawberries cut, 1 cup raspberries, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 bottles of chianti

Damn, wish I had the recipe for rhubarb pudding that my mom makes. Omg, my fave summer dessert!
 
2013-05-09 04:53:45 PM
When I was growing up in upstate NY, my mom would get local Macintosh apples in big brown bags.   Then she made awesome apple pie.

I'm living in south Florida now.   The only thing that's seasonal here is Canadians, and there are pesky laws that prevent me from harvesting them.

It absolutely doesn't make sense that you can grow mint and not basil.  I'd suggest trying again.  Mint and basil are extremely closely related and pretty much grow in the same conditions identically.

Sage: Use it to make a brown butter sauce. It's a super tasty sauce that you can put on almost anything but I like it on pasta.

Mint: Mojito or, iIf you have an ice cream maker you can use it to make Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

Lavender: Mix with the mint to make a tea
