Summer isn’t only for fresh produce! There are many seasonal specialties in season right now. Look for (or make your own) seasonal berry preserves, jams, and jellies. Herbs of all kinds are also in season now, including one of my favorites: basil. Basil is not only delicious on your pizza or in your pasta sauce, but pesto is an easy and delicious sauce that adds flavorful basil goodness to almost any dish!
