Try these foods at their peak flavor — right now
Raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries are just a few of the berries that reach peak flavor during the summer. Berries are packed full of antioxidants and deliver a punch of flavor in your favorite summer pie recipe. Pair them fresh off the bush with some simple whipped cream while the picking is still good.
Sweet summer corn — is there anything better? Corn is one of the most versatile foods available in the summer, leaving you lots of room to experiment and improvise. Sweet summer corn ice cream made from corn husks or chilled corn soup are great ways to enjoy all that this hot-weather staple has to offer.
A perfect eggplant is a sight to behold: Its beautiful, lustrous purple (or lavender, white, orange, green, or mottled) skin adds gorgeous color to platters of grilled vegetables. Because of its high water content, however, eggplant can be a little tricky to work with. Remember to slice and salt your eggplant slices, particularly if you’re frying them, to avoid a soggy outcome.
