McIntosh: One of the great North American apple varieties, McIntosh came out of the St. Lawrence River Valley in Ontario almost 200 years ago. Joe and Rhonda O’Brien grow these in Ulster County, and we turn them into awesomesauce in Brooklyn.
Peaches: A member of the rose family (and, yes, just as sweet) peaches have plenty of vitamins A, B and C.

Steel-Cut Oats: Cardamom, apples and maple make this hearty breakfast porridge anything but run-of-the-mill.
Ratatouille: Eggplant, summer squash, low-acid yellow tomatoes, and sweet white bell peppers provide a twist on this summertime classic.
