Vegan MoFo 2015 Day 15: What's your favorite late summer food?
This is boring, but I don't want to miss another prompt, and I'll make this short and sweet, very sweet actually.
I love all the produce summer brings, but melon and blackberries hold a special place. In the Pacific Northwest, local offerings usually arrive in the market and on the vines in late summer, although they were early this year as we've had an uncharacteristically long, hot summer.
I try to freeze as many berries as I can to eat once the season passes, but the melon I just enjoy while its around, which makes it precious. I wish I had a bunch of interesting recipe ideas with melon and blackberries, but I really just eat them as they are and don't do too much else with them, other than freeze some of the berries for later.
