Being a Seattle girl, I have always known how lucky we were to have gorgeous Washington State fruit at our fingertips. In the fall it’s all about apples and in the summer it is stone fruit that charms our taste buds and fills our table.

Everything from cherries and apricots in early summer, and now the peaches and nectarines are my absolute passion! I was so excited when the Washington State Fruit Board sent me this AMAZING package.
