Summer is here, and now is the perfect time to stock up on fresh homegrown and local produce. If you don’t have a garden growing in your back yard… No worries… just be sure to check your weekly grocery ads for great deals on what’s in season. If you are fortunate enough to live near a local farm… be sure and stop by and ask what’s on sale… and what they’ll be harvesting in the weeks to come.
Also take advantage of Cathy’s posts HERE about stockpiling fresh produce… She has a wealth of information on how to preserve the summer bounty for the coming months ahead.
And, if you don’t already know about this gem of a cookbook Simply in Season … You’ll want to take a closer look. It’s stuffed full of simple seasonal recipes.
“An essential kitchen companion for all of us who love to get our food from our own backyard, local CSA or farmers market–and always need new ideas. This is a book I will turn to over and over again. They’ve put the recipes in the most organized, easy-to-use cookbook I’ve seen.” –Catherine Walthers, author of Raising the Salad Bar and Greens, Glorious Greens
