Healthy snack idea! Fresh fruit with citrus sugar: My 3 favorite recipes.

Fruit season is finally picking up here in the northeast! We no longer have to live on apples alone (for a few months, at least!). Raspberries and blueberries have been amazing. Strawberries are getting better and better. Soon, we'll be gorging on juicy stone fruit. When fruit is in season locally like this, you can feast on it without fuss, straight from the basket. And we do! But there's also an abundance and it's fun to cook, bake, and play with all the goodness, too. That's the beauty of this time of year: produce is good, there's plenty, and you can do what you want with it. One of the things I have been loving is serving fresh fruit with citrus sugar. My kids are pretty keen on eating fruit with citrus sugar, too. In fact, it's been the most successful way of getting them to ask for more. (more after the jump)
