Summer's bounty is continuing. The melons are starting to show up at various stands. Pictured above is ambrosia melon. Ambrosia melon should not tobe confused with a cantaloupe, but it's quite different. Its flesh is very sweet, tender and pale orange in color with a flavor described as “a combination of all melons plus flowers.”
Strawberry varieties are plentiful. We prefer the smaller ones, they usually are the sweetest.
Stone fruits also abound. Elegant Lady peaches are an August peach.
Bitter melon was plentiful at the Asian specialties table. We have read that it has medical benefits, and thus far have not tried it. The taste does not appeal to us, but we love the look and feel of it.
Rainbow carrots always catch out attention, especially when presented so beautifully.
And here is a new item from the organic honey stand. Probiotic are good for your digestive system according to many sources including WebMD.
Wishing you an abundance of Saturday Smiles, and a great weekend ahead.
