Eating in Season
March 8, 2012 § 6 Comments
Are you good about only eating produce that’s in season? I do my best, but I’m not always the greatest at it. A few weeks back I discovered this awesome tool on Real Simple that tells you what’s in season in your state. I knew, generally, what was in season from month to month, but not the specifics between early April vs late April, and so on.
At first the tool was a little depressing. I scrolled down for New York and saw that only carrots, potatoes, and onions are in season right now. I sort of knew that in the back of my mind, but it’s different when it’s right there, staring you in the face! But instead of feeling frustrated that I still have to wait months for berries, asparagus, corn, and tomatoes to be in season, I decided to take full advantage of carrots, potatoes, and onions while they’re in their full glory.
Here’s my plan below. With these recipes, I can’t wait to indulge in these ingredients!
1. Carrots- Creamy Carrot Soup
2. Potatoes- Potato Latkes
3. Onions- Caramelized Onion Tart with Gorgonzola and Brie (Yum!)
