What’s in season?
May Fruits & Vegetables
Spring has sprung! The chives are leading the way and will be followed closely by all the other greens bursting onto the scene.
This is the time of year when we experience a major shift in the food we eat. We move from the high starch foods of winter to the more energizing and refreshing foods of spring and summer. It starts with fresh greens – lettuce, herbs, asparagus, spinach, nettle and moves to sweeter, more colourful fruits.
If you’re coming out of winter mode, like us here on the prairies, this is also your opportunity to truly enjoy local produce. Whenever you can make a point of reaching for locally grown produce. The flavour will be second to none and you’ll help ensure a robust, local food network which we’ve learned is vitally important. Watch for a farmer’s market near you!
Here’s my latest collection of favourite recipes and tips for selecting, storing and enjoying this month’s featured produce.
