Seasonal Produce Guide for February


I just can’t possibly not be excited about February with that beautiful image of lemons! It may be a cold and grey month in many places but I’m determined that my meals don’t have to be. All of the citrus fruits in season right now are sure are certainly brightening up any gloom I normally experience this time of year. I’m challenging myself to try a few new citrus fruits this month. Part of the fun of eating seasonally is using foods from the produce list that you’ve never tried before. What new food can you try out this month?!

Also, I’ve been doing these produce lists for a few years now and I’ve always added chocolate to what’s ‘in season’ in february. So, here’s to continuing on that tradition, because it’s cold and and we all need a little chocolate! So just in case you are planning a Valentine’s dessert treat, there’s lots of chocolate ideas at the bottom of the recipe list as well. Have a tasty month!
