Seasonal Produce in February

February Seasonal Produce Guide

Written by Becky

Okay, so it’s mid winter and there’s really not a lot of seasonal produce available in most areas but I do have one tasty offer for you.  Make your own orange juice!  Oranges and grapefruits are readily available and nothing quite compares to a glass of fresh squeezed OJ.  If you don’t have one of these fun vintage juicer contraptions (as most don’t), feel free to just use your hands.  Also, many grocery stores offer fresh squeezed orange juice for sale these days, Liberty Heights Fresh being one of them.  Bottles of fresh Valencia orange juice grace the cooler shelves right as you walk into their market.  So, there you have it, no excuses to getting in your daily dose of Vitamin C this month!

Here are a few seasonal recipes for inspiration. Please feel free to add a seasonal recipe link in the comments section!

  1. I can’t get enough orange juice these days, especially since I came down with a cold late last week. I guess after all the hubbub with ALT, it finally caught up with me! What a delicious round up – thank you so much for including me!

  2. Lentils are also commonly used in Ethiopia in a stew-like dish called kik, or kik wot, one of the dishes people eat with Ethiopia’s national food, injera flat bread. Yellow lentils are used to make a nonspicy stew, which is one of the first solid foods Ethiopian women feed their babies…-’:
