Print Friendly, PDF & Email

With summer looming around the corner there are so many great delicious choices for your Memorial Day weekend celebration. Stone fruit is plentiful.  Early peaches and nectarines are sweet and juicy. Earl’s has both yellow and white varieties. Did you know that nectarine is just a peach without the fuzz? Handle them carefully ,keep at room temperature until ripe and eat within 2 days.

California cherry season just started and only lasts 4-6 weeks depending on the weather. Bing cherries are arriving at Earl’s just in time for the holiday weekend. We can look forward to California cherries going until the middle of June and then the supply will be coming out of the Pacific Northwest. Don’t have a cherry pitter? You can use a paper clip for fuss-free pitting. Watch the easy how to video here.

Berries are abundant. How about some sweet, plump blueberries? 1 cup of blues = your antioxidants for the day. Blueberries are now available in 6 oz and pints.  Sweet, succulent strawberries can be found everywhere.  I love them sliced with a little honey and vanilla and topped with ricotta cheese mixed with lemon zest. Did you know that each strawberry has about 200 seeds and it is the only fruit with the seeds on the outside?  Raspberries are perfect out of hand or sprinkled on top of a honey and thyme custard drizzled with honey.

Sweet corn on the cob is here just in time to grill it and serve with a cilantro lime butter. Don’t be afraid if you find a small worm at the top of your organic corn. This is common because pesticides are not used. Just trim off the end and start cooking.
