Instead of making the blueberry cheesecake I make some blueberry cobbler. It was a lower fat option and took less time but still tasty. I must say that I love summer fruit. It is great to have an explosion of different fruits in season ready for you to try.
Cherries have long been a favorite of mine. We had a cherry tree in our yard when we first moved to Washington. It was heaven climbing up the tall tree and eating ripe cherries until we were full. The first year that we lived there there were worms in the cherries that were not noticed until my mother saw some in one of my sister's diapers. They learned quickly that they needed to spray for pests.
Strawberries are another favorite of mine. We have a nice patch of strawberries growing in our back patio. They are a bit heat stressed so they are not producing very well at the moment. I have a killer recipe for strawberry pie and I love making it often.
Peaches are my all time favorite. I love a nice and juicy peach on a warm summer day. My parents have a peach tree in their back yard and when they come and visit often they will bring some frozen peaches down with them. I think peach crisp is one of the best non-chocolate dessert ever.
My love of blueberries has only recently happened. I never really cared for them fresh but they are amazing when they are baked into things. Blueberry pancakes are a nice Saturday morning treat. What are some of your favorite summer fruits?
