Plums, Pluots & Apricots Recipe Contest Winner: Stone Fruit Gazpacho
Fruit is a popular main ingredient in a lot of desserts, but it doesn't often show up in entrees. This entry, a fun take on the usually-savory gazpacho, incorporates all three of the contest ingredients: plums, pluots, and apricots.
Chef (and judge) Ernest Miller of The Farmer's Kitchen had to do a lot of chopping for this recipe, but beyond that it's quite simple. And very, very tasty. A huge thank you to Sugiyarti Jorgenson of Kodiak, Alaska for sending it in - your prizes are on the way!
