Dive Into the Flavors of Summer


While summer does not officially begin until the end of June, we couldn’t help but dive into the flavors of summer. Summer brings forth a bounty of flavorful fruits, vegetables and herbs that deserve no less than to be cooked up into wonderful meals! One of the greatest qualities of sorghum is that it serves as a catalyst for flavors, which is good news for all summer fare. We’ve gathered 10 sorghum recipes that capture the flavors of summer!
