Eating Seasonal: Winter’s Wonderful Produce

It might seem that winter is not favourable for fresh produce, but it’s actually the opposite! Like other seasons, winter boasts of fruits and vegetables that thrive even in cold temperatures. So even if it’s chilly outside, you can still eat healthy and fresh – with the help of fresh winter produce, of course.

Winter’s Best

If you are looking to use the freshest ingredients this winter, then make sure to purchase the following produce on the market.

 

Fruits

Vegetables

Clementine

Brussel Sprouts

Pomegranate

Kale

 

Sweet Potato

 

Winter Squash

 

These crops are bountiful during winter – from December to February, to be more specific. With that being said, they are cheaper than other produce which only bloom during summer or spring and have to be relocated to your local grocery store. If you want to save money and savor the freshest harvest that you can get your hands on, then make sure to include the aforementioned fruits and vegetables on your usual grocery list.
