Seasonal eating – May

Finally, things are beginning to get better. More produce is appearing on the shelves, but not to the overwhelming levels we’ll have in a couple of months.

Asparagus
Beets: roots and greens
Broccoli
Broccoli Rabe
Cauliflower (time to make piccalilli!)
Cabbage: red, green, Chinese
Carrots
Peas (English, sugar, snap, snow)
Radishes
Spinach
Turnip
Onions
Kale
herbs
Arugula / rocket
Cilantro (one of my favourite herbs)
Honeydew melon (yum!)
Flat leaf parsley
(Corn was on sale at my local store – delicious, fresh, and cheap!)

You should start seeing some more exotic stuff appearing in your local stores, but don’t let that fool you: check the price. Just because you *can* buy something, it doesn’t mean it’s in season. If it isn’t on at least Buy One Get One, you may wish to steer clear of it.

Usual warning: agricultural products, subject to vagaries of weather etc….
