Whether you grow your own food or shop at your farmer’s market, eating what’s in season will assure you the freshest produce–picked at its peak and brimming with flavor.
July being the middle of the summer, brings us the most variety of fruits and vegetables at their peak or just coming into season. This is the time that the heirloom tomatoes, red bell peppers and cucumbers will start showing up at your market in abundance. I can’t even stop thinking about all the uses for jalapeno now. I want to put it in everything! Expect to see a lot of recipes from me soon with jalapeno and cucumber and tomatoes and other summer produce in season. : )
In season for July (North America at least):
French Butter Pears
Black Mission Figs
Sweet Bell Peppers
