For some people (okay, for me), the July farmers market generates as much excitement as crippling anxiety. There's just so much there—what to do with all of it?
To help you narrow it down, we've gathered our best summer fruit desserts and organized them by fruit type and involvement level. Got a lot of blueberries and not a lot of time? Scroll down to low-maintenance blueberry recipes.
And, if worse comes to worst, eating your summer fruit raw—or with a dusting of confectioners' sugar or a drizzle of honey—is still (and always) a very good option.
You can even use frozen berries!
Skip the sherbet and make only the macerated strawberries, if you'd like.
Use whatever slightly-sweet, very crunchy cereal you have, or make a crumble of your own volition.
When you buy beautiful berries (or other precious summer fruits) at the market, what's the first thing you want to make? Tell us in the comments!
