Stone Fruit Bowls

Recipe by: Dr. Michael Greger & Robin Robertson from The How Not to Diet Cookbook
A drupe, more commonly known as stone fruit, is so named because it contains a stone (or a pit) inside. Many popular stone fruits, such as cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, mangos, and dates, are in season in late summer.
