What's Fresh in Late July
The big change from early July to late July — zucchini. Their gorgeous blossoms ready to be filled with ricotta and herbs then fried to perfection. However, if you've forced yourself not to pluck the orange blooms from the garden and let them grow, you should be able to start picking the fruits of your labor. You can make them into noodles, you can use it in bread, frittatas, on pizza ... it's a very versatile squash!
But if impatience got the best of you, head to your nearest farmers market or local grocer and grab some of the local grown zucchini.
