Until very recently I didn’t really believe that in-season fruit and vegetables really taste better than off-season produce that traveled many air miles or was stored for months in climate-controlled containers. But it’s true – nectarines and peaches for example have a lot more flavour during late spring and summer time while the ones they have in store right now are more expensive and taste kind of watery. I found these cool cheat sheets by Chasing Delicious that break down the seasonal availability of all kinds of produce and make seasonal shopping a lot easier!
What about you? How strict are you about seasonal shopping?
