Stone Fruits

Deliciously Juicy Stone Fruits

Our summers are short so make the most of fresh produce like stone fruits. Whether you eat them fresh, barbecued, or baked, or can or freeze for later, these recipes will help make a summer memory. 

Stone fruits – juicy peaches, nectarines, cherries, apricots and plums – are a part of summer. They are so good to enjoy by themselves, but did you know that you can also bake with them or add them to savoury dishes?
