Recipe Ideas - Summer Share 2015 (Week 3)

Welcome to Week 3 of the Summer Season!

Week 3 is all about the sweet fruits this region has to offer. We've got BEAUTIFUL cherries AND blueberries in the standard shares this week (small shares get to taste the 1st harvest of blueberries for the season). Also, the fruit shares kicks off and provides even more variety for you GOOD folks that can't get enough of nature's candy: sweet cherries, sour cherries, blueberries, and black raspberries make up our first phenomenal fruit share of the season!
 
A friendly reminder on the tender, sweet fruits of the season: Cherries, raspberries, and other berries are incredibly delicious, but also  fragile and perishable items. All fresh picked berries are susceptible to spoilage with increased humidity, heat, or moisture. You may find that 1 or 2 cherries or black raspberries are past ripeness at the bottom of your quart. Have no fear, this is fairly typical when add moisture or heat is involved (did you know it's supposed to exceed 90 degrees today?!). Simply separate those 1 or 2 overly ripe berries from the rest of the gang for composting.
