|Spring already! Use this spring produce guide to get the freshest fruits and veggies of the season.|
Happy Spring! I’m sure there are others out there that are just as excited as I am about the prospect of warmer weather and more sunshine. Winter in Seattle isn’t too harsh, but it does get a bit dreary after a while.
I’ve written before about how eating in-season produce makes a huge difference in both price and taste, and last October I shared with you a list of fall foods. I guess I missed my chance to post a winter list, but now that spring has sprung, there’s no looking back.
If you want to get the best produce at the store or market, here are the items you should keep a weather eye out for:
Garlic Scapes / Green Garlic
Green Onions / Scallions
Did I miss any? Share in the comments below which recipes you plan to make with these spring ingredients! Last night, we made this Pan Roasted Chicken with Lemon-Garlic Green Beans… and it was divine. We used Sweet Meyer Lemons (and oh man were they sweet!), boneless skinless chicken breasts, and then followed the recipe to a T. There’s nothing like a simple spring dinner to get the season started right!
