Hey there! Summer is officially upon us (although the weather here tells me otherwise), and that means backyard barbecues, late night bonfires, juicy summer berries, and frosty, cool drinks.
With such a wide variety of food out there to choose from, how can we get the biggest bang for our buck? How can we find balance between quality and freshness? One solution is to buy seasonal products.
Buying seasonal ingredients means buying products that are harvested at specific times of the year, allowing a consumer access to fresher ingredients that are riper and often have better nutritional value. Buying seasonal products can mean savings, too! A product that is in season is more readily available, and therefore, less expensive.
I've created a handy guide to seasonal products including produce, fish and meats to help you, the lovely reader, to easily find ingredients that are in season right now! You can go directly to the summer guide here.
