Get choosing, cooking and storing tips from the produce that is getting out of season here
“If ever there were a time of year when it just feels right to eat well, June is it. The air is sweet and warm and there are oodles of healthy options in the grocery store (or, if you’re lucky, the local farm stand) that can help keep you energized through the long summer days.
Strawberries are summer’s stand-out sensation, but it’s just not tennis without the rest of the seasonal berries. Broad beans, tomatoes and fresh peas are also unmissable in June.”
When produce is in season locally, the relative abundance of the crop usually makes it less expensive. Fresh, locally harvested foods have their full, whole flavours intact, which they release to us when we eat them.
Just a note: be aware that this is a general guide, always check on your local farm or market what is in season right now and buy it fresh locally grown whenever possible. The produce may be harvested or grown in different times of the year, it all depends on the region and climate.
