Summer officially extends well into the month of September, however, as soon as September rolls around, we begin the transition from summer to fall. The long, warm evenings spent grilling on the patio are numbered, but there is still plenty of time to enjoy many favorite summer foods - and to look forward to fall favorites as well.
While many varieties of apples are available year round, late-summer and early fall is when we begin to see more and more varieties becoming available, and when we begin to see the quality and the price of the fruit drastically improve! Apples are widely available and they store well if refrigerated; keeping them chilled preserves their crispness and conserves their nutrients.
The Pluot is flavorful cross between a plum and an apricot. It is quickly becoming a favorite summer fruit. For anyone who loves all the soft stone fruits of summer, this one is a must-try!
