Summer is a wonderful time to enjoy fresh fruit. If you grow your own fruit, be sure to check the Marin Master Gardeners website frequently for tips on growing, pruning, and harvesting fruit. You can also find books on fruit growing in the Marin County libraries. In the Marinet Classic Catalog type in the subject headings Fruit and Fruit Culture. You can sort your results by date to find the newest books.
If you’re not a gardener, but enjoy preserving and cooking with fruit, check out the libraries’ cookbook collections. Try the following subject headings in the library catalog: Cooking Fruit, Fruit Preservation, and Canning and Preserving. If you’re looking for recipes for fruit desserts, try the following keyword search: Fruit and Desserts. Of course you can also type in the subject heading Pies.
