The May produce guide is here! Just like winter, Citrus is on its way out, as are cool-weather crops like cabbage and beets. Berries will start showing up in Southern U. S. states very soon. Growing seasons vary around the country as well as around the world, so your best bet is to visit a farmers’ market and see what your local growers have to offer.
May is a season of celebrations, with Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, the Kentucky Derby and of course graduations that will be on the calendars for many of home cooks.
So at the beginning of each month, we will feature a fruit or vegetable that is season with a few recipes that may spark your interest and please your palate. We just want to help make shopping for seasonal foods a little easier in making your grocery list for the weekly trip to the store, and for the up coming special occasions while helping out your wallet!
