58 Ways To Use Summer Fruit

Cherries, Summer Fruit | Becky Cooks Lightly
Summer means a garden full of fruit, or at least a grocery basket full. If you have more fruit than you know what to do with, I have compiled a list of recipes and ideas for you and me to draw inspiration from.

To start with, if you're not sure what is considered a summer fruit, Nourish Interactive has a complete list of fruits by season. The article is well done, and I think you'll be surprised at the sheer amount of fruit available this summer. I know I was. 'Tis the season of delicious.
