If there’s one thing that’s in season all around the world right now, it’s fruit. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we’re enjoying berries, peaches, and all of the goodness summer has to offer. Our friends in the Southern Hemisphere aren’t quite as lucky – since it is winter there, their fruit choices are more limited, and they’re enjoying winter fruits and preserved (frozen, canned, dried) fruit. In the grand scheme, though, everyone can access fruit in one form or another.
One thing that we all have in common is our passion for baking. And this month, I’d like you to include fruit in your bread recipes. It can be any kind of bread (yeast, quick, etc) and any kind or form of fruit (fresh, dried, preserves, etc). So the guidelines are simple. It has to be a bread and it has to have fruit in some form. Let your creativity guide you! Use your farmers markets for inspiration. Most of all, have fun and bake something delicious!
How to participate?
Bake a bread with fruit, take pictures (if possible) and blog about it between now and Sunday, 1st of August 2007. Please include a link to this announcement and eventually a link to the round-up. The round-up will be posted in a few days after the 1st of August.
