they are here they are here! peak summer goodness. these local apricots and sugar plums from new york and connecticut are unbelievably amazing. produce is ripening a bit early this year compared to last. which suits me fine. these sweet, tart, firm apricots didn't arrive until nearly august last year. and the sugar plums, so tiny and delicious. my family's diet is probably 50 percent fresh fruit right now. crazy good this year. we are really living it up.
i made some nice summer borscht this week as well as gazpacho. yum. refreshing, cooling soups, recipes coming your way soon. in the meantime, keep cool and enjoy all this mid-summer perfection. xo, g
