With summer comes tons of ripe, local fruit. I like to take advantage of everything at the farmer’s market, serving it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. A great way to enjoy fruit is by stuffing it with awesome things like sweetened cream, chilly sherbert, and homemade jello. Here are seven of the best stuffed fruit recipes on The Family Kitchen.
