Wisconsin Cheese and Fruit Recipes

HamSwissPeachCrostini (2)

Stained cherry fingers, peach juice dripping down your chin and the sweet-tart taste of a perfectly selected plum are a few signature signs of the summertime fruit season. This is the ideal time of the year to enjoy stone fruits, otherwise known as drupes, or fruits with a pit or stone in the center. They also make a refreshing match for the flavors of many delicious Wisconsin cheeses. Fruit and cheese is a classic pairing, almost as if the two were meant for each other. Try your favorite stone fruit in these decadent summery recipes. They’re all so yummy; it will be hard to pick just one!
