In season year-round:

Now that you’re stocked up on this month’s freshest in-season produce, here are a few recipes to try out:

  • Apple Pear Gondolas: Kids will have a blast with these protein and produce-packed “gondolas.” If serving for a crowd, rub a little lemon juice on the apples before topping to delay browning.
  • Pineapple Pear Shake: Frozen yogurt gets an extra sweet twist with the addition of pineapple and pears in this refreshing recipe.
  • Shepherd’s Pie: Love Shepherd’s Pie, but don’t love the traditional ingredients? Try this healthier version of the Irish favorite.
  • Zucchini & Summer Squash Frittata: Nothing is better than fresh zucchini or summer squash from the garden. This delicious recipe is perfect for breakfast, lunch or as a side at dinner and is another great way to sneak some yummy vegetables onto the plate.
