Wherever you live, you will find fresh, local ingredients specific to your area that are available during certain times of the year.
Before you choose your recipe, think of the produce that is in season at farmers' markets or in abundance at the supermarket. Even though different parts of the country have different growing seasons and much produce is shipped from overseas, each season still offers produce that is specific to that time of year. Of course, dairy, protein and grains are available year 'round and those ingredients are a must for many recipes.
By planning ahead with your recipe choices to include ingredients that are in season, your menus will always be delicious and farm-fresh.
