 h1. Dear readers,

 Like many of us, Culinate columnist Deborah Madison is baking with fruit right now. Unlike many of us, though, she's baking with fruit every day. She's testing recipes for a new cookbook, and — lucky us — we'll be able to enjoy the, um, fruits of her labor in a year or two. 

 If you've ever taken the time to bake a gorgeous fruit pie, and then felt disappointed by the taste, Deborah can sympathize. So much depends on the fruit itself, and too often that fruit is less than sublime, especially supermarket fruit. 

 Deborah's advice: [/columns/deborah/thefruitsublime?utmsource=NL072308&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=LocalFlavors&utmcampaign=FruitDoesNotTravel "Buy your fruit at the farmers' market"]. As she says, "Good fruit doesn't travel." It's best sold within a day or two of being picked — something that doesn't usually happen at the grocery store.
