Absolutely. I always hate to see tomato season go. But it’s that time.


ThaneOfCawdorrr

Yep. Tomatoes. Also when the first stone fruits come in--plums, nectarines, apricots.... Oh, and the very first, incredibly sweet strawberries!

I’ve eaten so many tomato sandwiches and cherry tomatoes. I stewed some, gave some away, have some in a bowl on my counter and a few left on the vines! Definitely going to grow purple Cherokee and sun dippers again!

One of the nicer parts of living in California - tomato season starts early and ends late 😍 I’ve been making killer romesco sauce every couple weeks because why wouldn’t you? I don’t want to think about not having good romesco or having to make it from canned tomatoes (even though that is still serviceable). But then we also get persimmons, pomegranates, awesome turnips, etc… CA is amazing when it comes to our produce seasons.


Eclairebeary

Have you made any pasta sauce? I love smitten kitchens naked tomato sauce, and it freezes so well.

My in-laws are too old to pick their fruit trees and no one else wants to do it. I go up and pick for them and they send me home with a pretty good share of what I pick. My mom offered to can it, so my share ended up being 12 quarts each of peaches and applesauce, a couple peach pies, and a lot of fresh fruit.

Mango season here in Hawaii is amazing. Everyone goes crazy over it.


spottedsushi

Mmmm, when is mango season just so I know exactly when to visit?


Darwin343

From around May to August. The two most popular are Hayden and Pirie. The latter is my favorite because it’s incredibly sweet and juicy with an extremely rich mango flavor.

Millions of peaches?


GoatLegRedux

Peaches for me!

Colorado peaches

Peaches. <3

Tomato sandwiches for days in the summer.

Omg best unexpected but elegant and simple fall side dish is butter sauteed onions and honey crisp apple slices with a touch of sage... Excellent with any sausage and kale or roasted butternut bisque. Cannot wait!


Obstinate_Turnip

New York state apple season is the best: maybe 50 varieties available in the farmer's markets? Oh yeah, that's the 300 year old breed French apple that's the original tarte tatin apple, and that's the one out of Cornell's apple farm last year that's going to replace the honeycrisp (as if)? Seasonal produce to look forward to now: Squashes: I love the new winter squashes bred at Cornell: Robin's Koginut is super tasty, if you can get some at your farmer's market, as are the cute little baby butternut squashes called honeynut squash. Parsnips: an earthier cousin of carrots: great for soups, as roasted vegetables. Celeriac: A lovely root veg, great in soup, as mash side for meats, etc.


kirby83

Oh yeah, I've heard of honeynuts.


curmevexas

They are my absolute favorite. I went to a farmstand yesterday and got 10. Most will go into soup. Any extra will be roasted and eaten as is or over risotto. I wouldn't be surprised if I got more by the end of season.


crazy4lotr

Acorn squash season is my favorite. And apple pie!


thriftingforgold

Yes! Roasted squash is my fav!


sumelar

Made pumpkin puree for the first time today. Pumpkin bread attempt tomorrow.


TheOldKing42

As a Louisianian…. Crawfish 🦞😏

I'm excited for baking season! Summer is too hot to use the oven but as soon as it starts to cool down I'm all about that life. Cookies, breads, quick breads, cakes and of course all those delicious roast dinners. I'm still working on perfecting my roast beef, can never seem to get the timing quite right.


Downtown_Confusion46

Fall is the shizzzzzzz!


angelcake

Ontario peaches.


yukimontreal

Any specific things you’re planning on doing with those apples?? I love all food seasons. Citrus season is a fun one that feels like a nice moment in the winter. Obsessed with pro blanco grapefruit, pomelo, blood oranges. I often make preserved lemons for the year at that time too. Tomato season. Stone fruit season. Early spring with pea shoots, favas, green garlic, and asparagus.


kirby83

Peel and freeze the Haralsons for baking, they make the best pie


yukimontreal

I’ve never heard of that variety but I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for them now!


anasokolovv

Apple season is my favourite. Picking is fun, the Apples last so long, and you get to make a delicious pie in time for thanksgiving.


veggiemud

Empress Plums are in season in my area now! I look forward to them every year.


ichbinsisyphos

Asparagus and Chanterelles, mostly.


MacawMoma

Sounds yummy! Sure it is exciting. Not only to make recipes for the in-season food that I might not always make, but to buy that ingredient at a cheaper price. Also, the food tends to be yummier in-season than out-of-season. Sometimes also only available in-season.


VLC31

We’re coming into summer in Australia, I can’t wait for mangos, peaches, decent strawberries- the list goes on


dungdinosaur

For me, it’s okra. I have a few pints right now that I got from a local farm here and it’s the best.


Binxybear

FIGS and CHERRIES!!! And also any and all stone fruit… I’m going to miss you summer… 😘


kcolgeis

Tacos!!!


MalingringSockPuppet

Almost. I'm allergic to uncooked apples and I don't like them cooked. I miss apple season so much. So much.


kirby83

Do you like pears? I'm waiting not patiently for them to go on sale so I can make jam.


elvenrunelord

6 different types of tomatoes here and I dunno what they have been seeing out back but their cheeks are starting to turn red... I have the mayo and bread ready, just waiting on them :D


TemperatureDizzy3257

Apples are definitely my favorite! I live in an area with a lot of apple orchards, so I can usually get them pretty cheap at roadside stands. My second favorite is strawberry season. Yummy.


Cuerzo

Bonito and mackerel season. Can't beat good, fresh blue fish: grilled steaks, marmitako, diced and wok fried with roasted red peppers, cooked in escabeche...


emilydubay

As an Oregonian it's crab season for me!


Maezel

After 3 months of winter fruits in Australia, I'm really looking forward for the peaches, plums and cherries in the summer.


Redcorns

As someone who is newly allergic to apples, this post hurts my heart. Also, get yourself a Cosmic Crisp!!!


Onlyplaying

The first cherries of the season are my favorite.

Make a pie with 1 of each different kind! It’ll move you.


ManifestsOnly

Pomegranate and Peaches 🤤


MooseKnuckleds

Yea, deer season


susanacf

Pumpkin. No clue why. The fall comes around and I'll be adding pumpkin to anything. 😂


ViciousBetty

Pink Ladies are the best eating apple. You should add that to your collection!


kirby83

I can get pink ladies all year


SaltandVinegarBae

I have a calendar reminder for pomegranate season, they’re so good


katerrin

i buy absurd amounts of persimmons in the winter because their season is so short


tofu_teacherinkorea

YES!!! Apples, sweet potatoes, persimmons, Asian pears... fall seasonal fruits&veg are my favorite :3


Lehster

i always oscillate between whether or not i give a fuck about apples. atm i dont give a fuck about apples.

You’ve got to try Cosmic Crisp!
