Each season of the year yields different fruits and vegetables. Use apps to learn what produce is fresh during each season as well as recipes for not only for the seasons but for the holidays.
Cooking with the seasons has many upsides. For one, buying fresh vegetables and fruits is normally cheaper than buying out of season, therefore, cost-effective. Secondly, the money you do spend on fresh produce is more than likely going to local farmers' stocking markets and shops. Thirdly, fresh fruit and vegetables not only taste better but are filled with more nutrients than produce that has been frozen or stored for longer periods. With this in mind, you can make cooking seasonally a new hobby by finding an app or website that features clean eating recipes. Additionally, you can find a seasonal cooking cookbook app that features recipes with ingredients that are grown in your area. For example, if you are lucky to live in an area that grows avocados during the summer, you can find loads of delicious recipes like avocado pesto or homemade guacamole and cool off the heat with delicious food.
On the contrary, if you are enjoying the cold and white season of winter, you will want to find winter recipes that warm you from the inside out. You can use apps like the Seasonal Food Guide to identify what vegetables are growing in your area so you can make a fresh and warming vegetable soup. Coupled with the winter season comes the holidays. Therefore, finding holiday recipes for Christmas that focus on seasonal ingredients can help you get creative with traditional holiday cuisine. For example, instead of making green bean casserole, you might want to use a seasonal vegetable like Brussel sprouts tossed in olive oil and salt and then roasted as a side to your delicious holiday meal. You can find easy holiday meals that are elevated by seasonal vegetables on apps like In Season.
Additionally, you can find summer foods in season on the same apps listed to make your outdoor dinner vibrant and delicious. You can find vegetable and fruit charts online that show you which ingredients you should use for seasonal recipes in July. For the biggest outdoor holiday like the 4th of July, you can find easy summer recipes like a roasted corn and squash salad or grill up fajitas with seasonally fresh bell peppers and eggplant.
