Produce for Summer

We are in the peak season for locally grown produce and farmers markets.  So how do you buy at the peak of the season and keep them fresh?  There are many ideas and theories about this.  Just remember that the sooner you eat, freeze or preserve the produce, the better.  Here is a link to a great article.

I also try to handle the produce as soon as I get home. I find that if I take the time then the less I loose. 

To freeze fruits and vegetable is easy.  I regularlly freeze any fruit or vegetable I can.  Rather than go into all the details, use this link.  It has a lot of great information and will help.  If the fruit does get mushy - make a compote.
