I'll be having brunch tomorrow with my mom, siblings, and extended family. After wishing a happy holidays to my farmers today, here's what I'll bring to share:
a few tangerines from the Schaners, peeled and segments pulled apart
a few fuyu persimmons from Heritage Farm, cut in half and sliced thin
a fuji apple, a pink lady apple, a century apple pear, all from Smit Orchards, all cored and sliced thin
1/2 pound of medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped
seeds of a pomegranate from the Schaners (here's a kitchen tip on removing the seeds)
local honey, optional
Toss the fruit pieces together and serve drizzled lightly with local honey.
