Summertime FRESH!

Leave a comment

Summertime is all about fresh fruits and vegetables – taking advantage of the local fare and creating wonderful sweet and savory treats to be enjoyed now and in the future. It’s a great time to make one of my favorites…fresh strawberry jam tickled with candied orange peel. Jams and preserves make wonderful gifts for the holidays too — family, friends and special clients enjoy receiving something made with a personal touch…not to mention delicious. They also make a perfect Hostess Gift or addition to a signature basket of goodies.

Homemade chutney is another favorite, which brings back fond memories of my grandmother. In the spirit of celebrating some of those great memories, my Apple-Pear Onion Chutney is in order! Using the freshest of ingredients and a little assist from mustard seed and dried cherries, we have the perfect complement to a grilled chicken or pork dish. Maybe not as healthy as it could be, but try this sweet chutney on a Chicken Fried Pork Chop – yum! The Savory Sister of my Apple-Pear Onion Chutney is a colorful Heirloom Tomato Chutney with sweet Walla Walla onions, fresh dill and zing of lemon zest that is the perfect dressing to grilled white fish.

Whatever the fresh fruit or vegetable you have at your fingertips, combining other fresh ingredients provides an abundance of options and flavor infinities!
