Summer Comfort Foods

Posted on

At Catering Central, we love preparing and eating seasonal produce. At the farmer’s markets this summer, you’ll be seeing a lot of; apricots, peaches, beets and kale – to name a few. If you’re looking for a way to combine the best seasonal produce with the comfort foods you enjoy, we have some suggestions to get your taste buds excited.

Turning your apricots into preserves will not only capture their flavor for the months to come, but give you the base for an Apricot Chicken glaze. An example of this simple family favorite can be found here at All Recipes .

Peaches can be used for a good old fashioned Peach Cobbler. Whose guests wouldn’t be thrilled with a sweet bowl of warm cobbler?

Beets are a popular seller at the farmer’s markets right now – but who really knows what to do with a bunch of beets? Roast some beets with potatoes, and other root vegetables. Serve them with dinner and keep the leftovers to stir into the following day’s salad lunch.

Lastly kale – one of nature’s true superfoods! Why not try this recipe from A Pinch of Yum? It’s a kale, sweet potato and sausage bake – with cheese sauce. How much more comfort do you need?


We hope you get out this summer and enjoy all the natural beauty, tastes and smells that seasonal produce has to offer.
