October: In-Season Produce
Eating in-season fruit is all-around win-win situation. Flavours and nutrients are higher, and the abundance means less food transportation, and less refrigeration and irradiation needed= lower prices and a chance to support your farming neighbours!
For the sake of simplicity, we listed the items from a culinary standpoint (i.e. sweet= fruit), not from a scientific standpoint (i.e. fruits have seeds in them, which includes produce like tomatoes, squash, pumpkin, etc).
We’ve been lucky enough to try most of these items, so shoot us a message if you would like a recipe and stay tuned on our Facebook page for postings of relevant dishes!
