Summer is coming soon! We’re wishing for the time when hot temperatures and sunny days stretch on seemingly forever. Soon the summer fruits will hit farmer’s markets at the peak of ripeness. Depending on where you live, that may already be happening (and I’m jealous!)
Pull out your favourite farmer’s market bag, grab your favourite fruits and use these wonderful summer fruit dessert recipes as your guide. Want to substitute one fruit for another? Have at it! Generally, the only problems you will run into will be because of water or sugar content. If you want to substitute tart raspberries with juicy peaches, you’ll likely want to decrease your sugar and water a bit. Most berries (saskatoons, blueberries, raspberries) can be substituted straight across though raspberries are often juicier.
Baking summer fruit dessert recipes can be a fun and rewarding experience. If your switch up doesn’t work perfectly, it will almost certainly still be delicious!
