Seasonal Produce Guide
This seasonal produce guide offers a list of in-season produce from January through to December, plus recipes to use them with!
Welcome to My Seasonal Produce Guide!
Cooking seasonally is the goal for a lot of home cooks and small locally-owned restaurants. Not only does in-season produce taste better and fresher, but it gives you the best bang for your buck when shopping. It also offers more nutrients. Although eating packaged frozen produce is absolutely healthy and totally okay (I do it all the time!), some nutrients are lost during the blanching process. With that, you’re definitely getting the most out of fresh produce when you consume it. I hope this guide is helpful to anyone looking for inspiration to buy what’s in season and cook seasonal dishes!
