Something sweet

Have to checked out the sweet, sweet harvest at the market recently? Summer flavors are starting to come in by the bushel. Strawberries are just beginning to make their appearance – pick up for a sweet treat, snack or dessert. Peas are here too! Sugar, snap and shelling peas are available for a limited time. June flavors are some of the sweetest – maybe because we’ve been waiting months for the tastes of summer.
