Whether you have your own garden or take advantage of the local farmer’s markets you can make a variety of delicious recipes to suit your summer tastes.

Local grocery stores also have a variety of frozen fruits so we can make some of our favourite treats year round.

A favourite for us is Gluten Free Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp.  Although rhubarb is a vegetable we treat it like a fruit and it blends well with strawberries.
