It's time to go to the market. Hot weather is finally here, which is a drag, but that means that just about everything is in season right now. We're seeing tomatoes, corn, peaches, plums, okra, eggplant, peppers, blueberries, currants, gooseberries, beans, peas, and a lot more. Click through the slideshow for a closer look, and check out the recipes below for ideas on what to do with it all.
Also this week, we wanted to share a video from friend of Serious Eats and Now This News host Katie Quinn, all about peas. Check it out below.
