Bake an Old-Fashioned Dried Stone Fruit Pie

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I have a problem.

I love the idea of eating fresh apricots, but not so much the reality. The reality is that they are never as juicy as I make them out to be in my head, and not as sweet either. Now I really love dried apricots, though! I could eat those all day. When I was training to become a yoga instructor earlier this year, I practically lived off dried apricots and almonds for snacks during our long days of training.

This past week I’ve been down in artichoke country. Monterey County, to be exact, which is affectionately called “The Salad Bowl of America”. I was down there for a few days learning all about salad, and yesterday drove through miles and miles of pure farmland on my way home.

What’s In Season During the Summer?

You might have guessed as much by now, but I love shopping according to the seasons. When you buy seasonal produce, you not only save money (who wants to spend $10 on blueberries from Chile?) and support local farmers, but you also prepare the best tasting meals since the ingredients are so fresh. Who doesn’t love that?

Grill Salmon Teriyaki This Summer

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Salmon teriyaki along with Beef Teriyaki have long been a staple in American Japanese restaurants, so it may come as a surprise to many that these are not traditional Japanese dishes. Ask for salmon teriyaki at a restaurant in Tokyo, and you’ll probably be met by a blank stare followed by a profuse apology. If you’re lucky, you might find a shop making yellowtail teriyaki, but in general, teriyaki goes with “chikin” like steak goes with beef.

Crisps are one of my favorite summertime desserts. Not only are they simple to make, they’re a great way to use up a lot of fruit, whether you get it in a CSA basket or spent a day picking berries.
