We want to see your best recipe starring summer fruit! Enter our latest recipe contest with your submission—you have until August 15!

To trained chefs and home cooks alike, there are few things more precious than peak summer fruit. As we move from spring to summer, we stroll the aisles of our local farmers' markets, waiting for a waft of sweet strawberries and honey-scented ripe peaches. In our latest contest, we are asking our community members to show us how to make those summer fruits shine.

Submissions are open from now until August 15 at 8 p.m. ET. Here are a just a few rules:

  • Summer fruit must be the star of the show.
  • We welcome any type of recipe—main course, drink, appetizer, or dessert. Get creative!

The Contest Winner will receive a gift from our Food52 shop.

How To Enter:

If you already have a recipe on the site, go to that recipe page, hit "Edit Recipe" (under the photo), scroll down, hit "Submit my recipe to a contest," select the latest contest ("Your Best Recipe with Summer Fruit"), and save.

If you want to add a new recipe, head to your profile page, select "Recipes," click "Add a Recipe," upload it, hit "Submit my recipe to a contest," select the latest contest, and save.

We read every submission and test as many as possible. But that’s a lot of reading and a lot of testing, so we’re counting on your help, too. Scroll through the submission pages and make (and favorite) any recipe that catches your eye. Then, share feedback on the recipe page. We'll take all this feedback into account as we narrow down the top five, which will be announced September 15.

Here's a full refresher on how the whole contest process works.

What's your favorite summer fruit? Let us know in the comments.
