Tips and Recipes for Using Summer’s Bounty

Tips and Recipes for Using Summer's Bounty

A bountiful harvest is a beautiful thing.

That is, until you develop a pile of beets, zucchini, or corn that no normal person or family could ever. possibly. consume. 

Then you start cursing those fruitful plants, secretly wishing for hail, drought, or a pack of squirrels to come and put you out of your misery.

Aside from pawning off unwanted veggies onto friends and neighbors, there are also plenty of creative ways to make use of summer’s bounty. Here are a few of our favorite recipes for some of the season’s most prolific producers:
