10 Summer Stone Fruit Recipes

It’s prime time to score some truly delectable stone fruit at the Farmers Market at Bay Meadows. As much as we love eating peaches, plums, apricots, and nectarines out of hand, they’re also delightful in sweet and savory recipes. Stock up on fresh stone fruits and start planning your next Bay Meadows summer picnic or BBQ with the help of these 10 recipes:

Peaches:

Savory Peach Chicken. Peaches give this quick chicken dinner a complex flavor.

Salted Caramel Peach Splits. Sweet grilled peaches and ice-cream are covered with gooey salted caramel sauce.

Sweet & Spicy Peach, Chicken, Hatch Chile and Spinach Pizza. A sweet and spicy pizza the whole family will love.

Ripe Peach Popsicles. The next best thing to fresh ripe peaches. Pass out popsicles for a perfect afternoon stroll in Landing Green Park with long stretches of elegant pathways, discrete alcoves, lush ornamental plantings and dramatic experiential sculptures.

Plums:

Pork Tenderloin with Plum Chutney. The tenderloin stays juicy inside a crispy pancetta crust.

Summer Stone Fruit Salad. Mix up this delicious fresh fruit salad and add to your picnic basket and make your way to Bay Meadows Park for the perfect summer picnic. With so much rambling space, the park has everything you need for fun in the sun, including play fields, picnic spots, even a duck-filled pond.

Apricots:

Apricot Amaretti Crisp. This Italian inspired treat is perfect to serve at a summer soiree.

Chicken-Apricot Skewers. Take the kebab to a whole new level. Persimmon Park is a great choice to toss your bounty on the grill and serve the feast to family and friends on the communal table.

Nectarines:

Nectarine Shortcakes with Honeyed Yogurt Sauce. Give the peaches and cream concept a healthy summer makeover. This recipe would be ideal to pack up in a picnic at Paddock Park, served up as a sweet treat with a side of family fun on the parks climbing structure and sand and water areas surrounded by picnic tables and lawn.

Stone-Fruit Sangria. Add plums, nectarines, apricots, peaches and cherries – and savor summer in every sip.

Stone fruit tips: When buying stone fruit, skip the squeeze and give it a sniff – if it has a sweet aroma, it’s ripe. Once ripe, storing ripe stone fruit in the crisper drawer, uncovered and unwashed, will prolong its eating life. When you’re ready to use, wash in cold water. To pit the fruit, slice along the seam and in a full circle around the stone; then twist in opposite directions to separate the halves. Remove the stone with a knife end.
