Farmers Market Find: A Sweet Summertime Pluot DessertAugust 7th, 2015
Here at Thrive Market, we’re all about supporting sustainable, local farming, and we encourage our members to shop at their local farmers market for seasonal produce—it’s the perfect complement to a pantry full of spices, oils, and cooking essentials from Thrive Market. This week, we’re celebrating the seasonal sweetness of pluots in this delicate gluten-free dessert.
As this simple French country dessert bakes, the homemade almond cream rises up to envelop slices of sweet and tangy summer pluots.
