What does summer mean to you? To me, besides beaches and backyard barbecues, summer means visiting local farms early Saturday mornings to see the week’s harvest. Summer is peak growing season and that usually means more fruits and vegetables than I know what to do with.
Everything I make or bake, I look to incorporate ingredients I’ve picked up from the farms. I also realized years ago that even if I don’t use all of the produce in one weekend, it’ll stay fresher longer than anything I’d pick up at the supermarket. Plus, farms are seriously paycheck-friendly, too!
I developed this guacamole recipe one evening when I had too few avocados and I was trying to make enough guacamole to feed my hungry family. I had, of course, shopped at the farms so I decided to stretch the guac by stirring in chopped tomatoes, corn and peaches. Now, it’s a family fave!
