What's In Season Now
This month I'm sharing recipes to use up all your favorite summer produce. Scroll down and pick a fruit or vegetable to find an easy and delicious recipe to make with it.
Fresh asparagus is so good. It is one of my favorite vegetables.
Everyone love avocados these days and they are so healthy. A sliced ripe avocado can be served with just about anything.
Bell peppers add flavor to many recipes.
Blackberries are sweet little jewels that are only available during the summer. Make them last the entire year by making blackberry jam!
Fresh blueberries can be bought all year long but the biggest and sweetest blueberries only come around during the spring and summer.
Carambola is an odd-looking tropical fruit. Because of its star shape when you slice it the tropical fruit is also known as star fruit.
All the kids love the sweet and tart flavor of star fruit and it makes a great Carambola and Strawberry jam recipe for canners who live in an area where star fruits are dropping off the trees.
Or make this refreshing Star Fruit Iced Tea to help you cool off!
Garden fresh carrots are so sweet. Pick them from the garden or buy them at the store. Use them in soups and stews or munch on them as a snack.
Sweet cherries are so good to snack on but they also make some of the best summer recipes.
Sweet Corn: Florida Sweet Corn is really the best sweet corn you will ever buy.
Next time you barbecue and have some leftover grilled corn on the cob cut the kernels off and make a corn casserole or freeze the corn to add to soups.
Cucumbers are great in a salad but there are many ways to enjoy this vegetable.
Dragon fruit is an exotic tropical fruit you must try at least once!
Grilled Eggplant is delicious on a grilled vegetable sandwich or served as a side dish.
Lemon are available all year long. But what would summer be without an ice cold pitcher of fresh squeezed lemonade?
Honey dew, cantaloupe and watermelon are perfect for a quick summer breakfast, snack or refreshing drinks.
Nothing cools a bunch of sweaty kids off faster than a thick slice of ice-cold watermelon. Have you ever made an icy pitcher of Watermelon Thyme Lemonade?
Fresh mushrooms are available all year long. But they don't last very long. Use a food dehydrator to dry them and you will always have mushrooms on hand.
Oranges: If you love homemade Lemon Curd you are going to love making homemade Orange Curd even more.
Biting into a sweet ripe peach is one of the pure pleasures of summer.
Papaya is so good in smoothies. You can see here how I like to freeze Papaya so I can use it in my fruit smoothies.
Pineapple can also be bought all year long. But you will find this tropical fruit to be the sweetest during the summer months.
Potatoes go with everything! If you love your crock pot as much as I do check out how I make Creamy Crock Pot Garlic Mashed Potatoes.
Strawberries are sweet and juicy. During the summer they are from California but during the cold winter months you can enjoy Florida strawberries.
If you are gardener and have grown yellow squash or zucchini you are always looking for more ways to use this summer crop.
Fresh tomatoes can be enjoyed in so many different recipes. I love adding them to pasta salad. This Asparagus Tomato Pasta salad recipe is a great summer side dish recipe. Or make Tomato Focaccia for a tasty treat.
If the garden is burst with fresh herbs you can dry them to use all year long! You'll save money all year and never have to buy an expensive bottle of dried herbs again.
