fresh fruit



i have been gushing a bit about spring lately, but i can't help it.  and now that we have the beginnings of fruit on our trees, i am, oh, so excited!  a couple of weeks ago allie gave me a big bag of lemons and so jack and lucy helped me squeeze a good deal of those and a big bag of grapefruit from our own tree (by the way, if anyone likes grapefruit, come and get it!).  you can't help but be happy, sitting outside juicing fresh fruit.  now we have apples, peaches and plums (!) on their way.  i was trying to find some good different recipes for all three of these before i am overloaded with them and not sure what to do.  most of what i was finding were desserts, which is fine, of course, but i thought i would see if anyone had any other good suggestions...  i love getting recipe recommendations...

the silver spoon as an apple risotto recipe, which i have never tried but have always wanted to. also check out the peach pie recipe in there as well -- it's actually more of a cake, but you use crushed amaretti cookies to make it. mixed with fresh peach sweetness, the combo is perfect.
