Luscious Stone Fruits for Summer

Stone Fruits, peaches and cherries

Orchards all over the South are brimming with fruit this time of year—and most enticing of all are the wonderful stone fruits that offer some of our favorite flavors of the season. Peaches, plums, cherries, and apricots are at their ripe, robust best, perfect for eating out of hand or incorporating into a delicious dish that will be the star of the table.

Start an alfresco party on a bright note with our Stone Fruit Salsa or Stone Fruit Sangria, both refreshing twists on the original versions. Cap off the feast with a delectable Peach, Plum, and Cherry Shortcake, layered with a tumble of fruit and luxuriant whipped cream. Or end on a sophisticated note such as Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta with Apricot, Cherry, and Tarragon Syrup.
