What's Your Favorite Way to Enjoy Summer Fruit?

Summer is just about here, easing in with warmth, sunshine, and fresh sweet fruit. While I eat frozen strawberries and over-wintered apples year-round, I look forward so much to this time of year, when raspberries are sweet and strawberries are tiny and bright. I eat a lot of plain fresh fruit, although I also love to muddle it into drinks, like the raspberry limeade cooler pictured above. What about you?

What's your favorite summer fruit, and what's your favorite way to enjoy it? Strawberry pie? Peach cobbler? Slices of early watermelon, sweet and juicy?

Tell us what fruit you look forward to in the summer, and how you most like to enjoy it.
