A different type of pie and very good. My husband would eat the whole pie if I allowed him.

A zippy, sweet and spicy nectarine salsa goes really well with pork, particularly grilled pork, in this favorite summer recipe.

Nectarine Blush

I love making this drink in the summer with fresh nectarines. It is also really good made with fresh peaches. The buttermilk gives it a fresh and tangy flavor while the brown sugar disguises the fact you are using buttermilk!

Drupey Pie

I added fresh, ripe nectarines and apricots to this sour cherry pie. These fruits are drupe fruits meaning they are fleshy with a hard stone or seed in the middle. The pie was summery and delicious! I really like to use turbinado sugar--it's less processed and has a good flavor--but white sugar would be fine, too.

Short of serving store-bought ice cream, you won't find a simpler, more delicious dessert than this fruit cobbler. Use any juicy summer fruit: peaches, nectarines, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries. And if you use frozen berries, this dessert can be assembled in less than 10 minutes.

Crab & Avocado Salad with Fruit Salsa

My crab salad with fruity-salsa flavorings is simple and appealing. Sliced avocados anchor and enrich this lively, colorful dish. If possible, select lump or backfin crab. The larger the crab chunks, the fewer shell fragments to pick out.
