 h1. Dear readers,
 It happens every June: Bins of rosy nectarines arrive at the market, and in my haste to taste summer, I grab a bagful of the pretty rock-hard fruit and take it home. And every year, I'm disappointed. This week, Deborah Madison gives us a mini lesson on choosing summer fruit — by sniffing it. 

 "The art of using the nose to detect a fruit’s promise through scent has died in the supermarket," she writes. Deborah takes her time sifting through the stone fruits, just to find the few that satisfy her. "People stare and think you’re nuts, but if you succeed, you get the prize." And the prize, of course, is that incomparable flavor of summer.

 I've been eating my fill of these fruits — cherries, nectarines, peaches, plums — but I know that all too soon the fresh ones will be gone for another year. We'll see if next year I can be a little more patient — not take any home until I can really smell them.
