Here's What You Need to Know About Stone Fruits

Stone fruits include peaches, olives, nectarines, mangoes, plums, cherries, lychees, apricots, and dates, which all have big, hard seeds or pits. They're all good sources of fibre, Vitamins A and C, and potassium.

While they're all tasty on their own, you might want to try them in any of these recipes:

Grilled Nectarines

Cut nectarines in half and remove the seeds before grilling. Brush both sides with a neutral oil (corn oil, for example) and a pinch of brown sugar. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes, turning once or twice until lightly browned. Serve with arugula, toasted pine nuts, and crumbled feta cheese as a side dish or dessert, or as a salad with arugula, crumbled feta cheese, and toasted pine nuts.

Roasted plums

 Toss halved, pitted plums with a little canola oil on a baking sheet. Drizzle with honey and a sprinkling of cinnamon, if preferred. Roast for 30 minutes at 375° F, or until soft. Serve with Greek yoghurt on top.

Peach salsa

Dice two ripe but still somewhat firm peaches and two medium tomatoes for peach salsa. To taste, add a little chopped red onion, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, garlic, and lime juice. Serve alongside grilled fish or chicken, tacos, and other Mexican dishes.
