Squash Blossoms and berries, berries and cherries!
I became enamoured with squash blossoms a few years ago when a friend described how deliciously they are prepared in Italy and now I eagerly await squash blossom season.
Here's a simple recipe to try:
While you're at the market be sure to pick up some of the last of the main season strawberries and fresh raspberries and maybe even blueberries for a great summer crumble. I've heard the sweet Door County Cherries will be showing up shortly as well. The pie cherries are still a couple of weeks away. It's supposed to be gorgeous on Saturday so get out to your favorite market and pick up some treats for the holiday weekend!
OOH, I almost forgot...I tried something new this year....strawberry infused vodka. It's only been marinating for a couple of weeks, but I snuck a taste the other night and it is scrumptious....slightly sweet, definitely pink and seems like it will go well with sparkling water and lime or maybe mint when the time comes.
