Blogging NPR: Summer Eating and Apricots

Pin it button big

NPR asked their listeners to tell them their summer food stories - what foods mean "summer" to their listeners? (See our own poll here.) Yesterday they featured a few answers, which included pesto, melons, and fresh jam from gobs of apricots gathered in Utah's Capitol Reef National Park.

You can listen to the piece, read parts of the transcript, and find a recipe for the apricot jam at the article's webpage: Summer Food.

Here's a few other recent food stories:
