The first warm days of summer lure fruit trees and berry bushes out of hibernation and nudge them to produce the first sweets of the season. A homegrown strawberry is about as perfect as it gets, and there is no reason to let a single one go to waste – Homemade Strawberry Frozen Yogurt will make sure of that. Relish the warm months by feasting on nature’s candy, and put up what you can’t use right away. Collect fresh blueberries for Kansas Wheat Berry Muffins, stock your cupboard with jars of Grandma’s Raspberry Jam, and welcome summer with open arms with a bowl of Fresh Peach Ice Cream. Kick back, relax, and savor these long, warm days with fresh fruit.
