So, you know what I've been getting into lately? Fruits and veggies, that's what.
I love cooking with fresh produce. Love it.
But I had a problem. You see, I never quite knew for sure if I was getting a good deal on my produce.
So I did some research. I read a lot of websites. I compared a lot of charts.
And I'm happy to present to you my first ever Monthly Guide to Seasonal Produce Trends.
My research tells me that this is enough to give you a general idea of what could be in season in your area--well as long are your area falls within or around the continental USA. It varies regionally, of course, but it should help you out, if you're like me and feel completely clueless.
I think it still needs a little work though. A few sites reported Bananas as a year around fruit because they're always imported from tropical areas. I'm going to watch these "year round" claims, and see what really holds true.
I printed mine out on some card stock and keep it on my fridge. That way I know what to expect from the grocery store that month, and can even scheme up some possible recipes!
Let me know if you see anything that needs to be corrected.
