Favourite Summer Foods

Hi everyone!

We are preparing for our summer newsletter and would like you to participate by taking a poll on your favourite summer food. We welcome discussions on other foods, but for the sake of the poll we have tried to pick the most common ones. Please limit your answer to your one favourite. Results will be posted in the newsletter.

Thanks everyone and happy summer eating!

I said "none of the above," because my favorite summer foods are the fruit that are not available locally at other times of year: strawberries, peaches, tomatoes, especially. and zucchini blossoms.

Sometimes I stuff them and deep fry them like tempura, other times, I stuff them and bake them in a light, fresh tomato sauce.

My absolute favorite is a fresh fruit salad served in a watermelon basket. I make both a green, and also a pink, fruit dressing/dip. it is very nicce with cold chicken breast. . .

my mom would pick them and carefully check for bugs and bees then she would wash them, dip in egg then into flour with very little salt and pepper (as to much season would over power the delicate flavor of the flower) then lightly fry in butter.
