“Freshness is essential. That makes all the difference.”

Julia Child

We have lots of fresh produce here in Ontario right now. Farmers are everywhere selling their harvest: Blueberries, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, cherries, rhubarb …

Hubby got strawberries and blueberries yesterday. The kitchen smelled freshness as soon as he opened the shopping bag.

Sadly this freshness doesn’t last long. By the end of August, we have to go back to the supermarket and buy fruits and vegetables imported from other countries. These fruits come by ship, so weeks traveling before reaching here. They have almost no taste and zero smell.

Each season has its own offers, so I’m enjoying the freshness of summer!

  1. I love that smell. We have peaches now in season and walking past the Farmer’s Market stand and the smell of fresh peaches is so enchanting!
