Fruit

Is there anything more luscious than perfectly ripe fruit in season? The tropical notes of bananas, the heady aroma of a juicy peach, or the sweet-tart flesh of an apple straight from the tree. Fruits are great out of hand, of course, but seasonal fruit can also be a clever way to add sweetness to savory dishes: Diced pear rounds out a chopped salad, grapes perk up a pan sauce for sautéed chicken, apricots play nicely in a stuffing for pork. And when it comes to desserts, well, look out, chocolate: Is there anything that trumps a fresh cherry pie, a golden-brown peach cobbler, or towering strawberry shortcake?
