That's easy -- tomatoes are the best. I love them any and every way, as long as they aren't the nasty things you buy in the supermarket in winter. The tomato season at the farms near me is heaven.

I adore the calendar tea towel. It reminds me of my great-grandmother who always had one hanging in her kitchen when I was a kid.

Jennifer said...

hmmm, it really depends. it has to be fresh and local. So maybe I would say mango or pineapple, because then I would be in a warm, tropical island paradise!

I have loved these prints. I wanted one last year but they sold out!

nancy c. said...

I would have to say fresh, vine ripe tomatos...rubbed with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt..then tossed on the grill! Perfection, sweet perfection!!

gill said...

fairlytypical said...

That's easy - broccoli... I LOVE it. Could eat it all the time and any way!

Jenny said...

Hand picked blackberries. LOVE them. I eat them straight.
The tea towel is precious! Thanks

Kellie said...

Tough question because I love so many. I truly adore raspberries in the summer though, served anyway!

Christine said...

asparagus! roasted with salt, pepper & garlic :)

JBentley said...

Freshly picked strawberries with just a little bit of cream!

RW said...

chilled fresh cherries on a hot summer day.

Betsy said...

avacados-- in every way, shape and form!

Missy knits said...

The calendar tea towel is so cool!! And my answer is simply summer, home-grown tomatoes...drizzled with olive oil and a smidge of balsamic vinegar with tons of fresh basil and a dash of salt and pepper...my mouth is already watering!!!

Katie said...

*brussels sprouts* cut in half and cooked face down in some olive oil and salt on med-high heat until caramel-brown on the bottom and tender in the middle. You have to eat them w/in about 10 minutes for the flavor to stay perfect.

cute dish towels! thanks!

Kim said...

Avocado is by far my family's favorite right now!

Hannah said...

peaches. UTAH peaches. fresh ones. from 8th north in orem.

i cut them up, sprinkle with a little sugar and pour milk on top. mmm. delish.

i am a strong believer in buying local. love that print!

Helena - A Diary of Lovely said...

oven baked courgettes with olive oil and chilli flakes, I love oven baked vegetables.
Great giveaway, thank you so much

tawnya said...

Really? Just one? Hmmm.... Grapes, I think. And frozen is best.

J said...

Raspberries (preferably over dark chocolate cake!)

This is lovely!

a gracious plenty said...

i love lots, but what i eat almost every day is a granny smith apple with a side of almonds.

Karen Beth said...

I like them all! It is hard to pick! However, I do really like beets roasted. Yum.

Lena said...

I love this!

I love so many vegs: bok coy and brocolli in the winter - steamed or sauted with a little tamari. Blueberries in the summer with everything. Oh and apples, just plain or with a side of cheese. And salad, need my plate of leafy greens with just a little tomato and cucumber and salt and vinegar/oil dressing.

Cathleya said...

My fave vegetable is Eggplant and I love it any way you can serve it---but I eat it most grilled with salt, olive oil and a sprinkle of balsamic!

His HH6 said...

Hmmmm, it's so hard to pick a favorite, but I have to say I've never met a raspberry I didn't like :) As for preparation, I'd pick nice and fresh the way nature made them, but any number of preparations would make me happy! Love the print.

Potatoes! I looove my potatoes. I grow all my own to supply myself for the year and I enjoy them in every single style! Mashed, hashbrowns, shredded, friend fries, baked, everything! So delicious.

Anneliese said...

i love fresh green peppers. sliced. raw. delish.

apple slice said...

Artichokes steamed with melted butter. Ahh. And the heart of course.

Carrie K said...

what a fabulous print...and a great reminder :)

Im impatiently waiting for asparagus!! i love it broiled with butter and salt...not too mushy!

Never That Easy said...

This winter, I've been getting interested in sweet potatoes. Roasted, a little sea salt? Yum.

Desiree said...

my favorite would have to be my Nona's artichokes. She boils them, then she puts a mixture of olive oil, garlic, and red crushed pepper in between the leaves. Most amazing thing ever!

Liz said...

fresh, raw pomegranate!

Rosa said...

I love cherries, and we get the best local ones! they are so cheap in the summer that I make marmalade, pie, crumble and anything I can think of but the best is just as snack in front of the TV

craftydill said...

I really love strawberries... in yogurt, in sorbet, in chocolate and by themselves. Can't wait for summer!

Elizabeth said...

Strawberries, straight up!

Season said...

Fresh raspberries, yum. Or roasted butternut squash.

Jaclyn said...

Right now I am loving cauliflower - just raw. Thanks for the chance!

NSMOM said...

Fresh ripe peaches when they are in season. In/on ice cream, just fresh by themselves, pretty much anyway... thanks, Maureen (jnomaxx at hotmail dot com)

Leesh said...

for months i've been head over heels for baby bok choy with soy sauce and lemon juice...it makes this japanese sauce called ponzu... then some spicy red pepper chili sauce to spice things up. i like it HOT and served on a bed of rice. yum

Jeanne said...

My favorite fruit is pineapple. It's hard to get fresh here but whenever I travel to Hawaii or South East Asia I eat TONS of it!!!!

Courtney B said...

this is so very hard. a FAVORITE?! i have to pick one? well, it would be between oranges, apples, blueberries, peas, or tomatoes. mmmm... all of them. i think i might have to buy this if i don't win the giveaway. i am obsessed with food and eating sustainably and locally. i am excited about this one.

Deborah said...

Zucchini is the best vegetable! Tastes delicious with any meal! I prefer it lightly fried...mmmmmmmmm.

Mara said...

oooohhh, that is a hard questions. i love a fresh organic tomato from the farmers market drizzled with olive oil, salt, basil and balsamic.

I love fresh pineapple... yummy... reminds me of my trips to Hawai'i. There is something so magical and relazing about the islands. Cheers!!

PDX Bride said...

raspberries . . . right off the vine!!

carrie said...

I bought some strawberries the other day against my better judgement. They were gross and I was sad that strawberry season is so far away.

Janssen said...

How to even choose? Strawberries with a little half and half or avocado as guacamole. Yum.

beyond said...

if i can say only one, i have to say apple. apple slices with a dash of cinnamon.

w and w said...

We go through avacados like crazy around here. I love them, my husband loves them and our kids constantly request them. Favorite way to have them. Guacamole, homeade that is!
love this design...too fun!

Jaimie said...

zucchinis. just plain. uncooked. love them.

heather palmer said...

granny smith apples with yogurt and honey.

marlene said...

Right now I am loving black eyed peas. Cooked with onion and bacon. Mmm.

Wendy - Phx, AZ said...

Pink Lady Apples - ever tried them? Sometimes hard to find and a bit more expensive, but WORTH IT! I eat them all day long . . . now my kids are hooked too!

Martha said...

I think I'll have to go with gala or honeycrisp apples. With fresh ground peanut butter. delicious.

Lauren said...

Cucumbers! I work and live on a farm, and over the summer months I learned the art of PICKLING! Instead of vinegar pickling, I prefer the method of lacto-fermentation which allows the cucumbers to naturally ferment in a salt water brine. Crispy and delicious!

Holly Snyder Thompson said...

wow! I'd love that buy local print!!

jaytee'sbtw said...

an apple a day...keeps the doctor away. i {heart} apples and they have to be crunchy! and i absolutely lllove broccoli! i like it cooked and raw!

holly-lynn said...

fresh jersey tomatoes. sliced & served with fresh mozarella & basil!

Jennifer BB said...

My favorite veggie is spinach. I'll eat it raw in salad--or snack on it fresh picked from the garden. But sauteed with chopped garlic and a spritz of lemon is my absolute fave.

Michael - Innkeeper said...

Love, love strawberries!
My favorite way to have them is macerated with sugar, over pound cake, with homemade whipped cream.

CharityMay said...

right now it's cauliflower, roasted (almost caramelized) with sliced onions, olive oil, s&p.

Anna Kristina said...

berries, with yogurt and granola, or any sort of dessert!
