Seasonal Eating – January

As we pull out of the depths of winter, there is relatively little that is in season just now, mainly root vegetables. But if you ever wanted an excuse to pickle carrots, now is the time to do it.

IN SEASON IN JANUARY
Green cabbage
Carrots
Peas
Scallions / green onions / spring onions
Turnip
Greens – turnip, mustard, Kale, collards
winter Squash
herbs
Arugula / Rocket

This list is, of course, subject to variation – produce is a living thing and is affected by unseasonal weather variations, but this gives you a good idea of what *should* be in your farmer’s markets and grocery stores at a really keen price.

Try something on this list you’ve never tried before… you may like it, you may not, but at least you can say you tried it (and say to yourself “at least it was cheap”!)
