cranberries.gifOne of the best things about Summer is that so much fruit is finally in season! Bright red strawberries, juicy peaches and nectarines, grapes for days, and of course everyone's favorite - melons in every shape, size and color. Who knew yellow watermelon could be so good...

So what are you going to do with the mounds of fruit you pick up each week from your local farmer's market or grocery store? Well hopefully it's not dying a quick death as ripe fruits are known to do if not eaten in a day or two.
For starters, why not don a chef's hat and cook up some delicious desserts for the family or social get together with friends. Wineries are now starting to provide online visitors with recipes paired perfectly with either their own wine or the general varietal to pair with.
