Seasonal Produce Guide for February

Written by Becky

I make lots of mistakes. LOTS.  Maybe more than the average person.  For instance, I’ve been using the graphic image above for going on two years now, yet someone just pointed out to me how terribly I spelled tangerines!  I know this was my fault.  I gave the text to my designer and he probably just copied the list without thinking of checking my awesome spelling. Anyways, I hope to encourage you today that perfection is certainly not expected here, not when you’re my friend, online or off. And even though I try my best to be professional and minimize mistakes on here since it is my job and source of income, I will make mistakes every once in a while. Thanks for your grace in my silly mistakes and I hope you still save the image to your computer and just get a good laugh overtime you read… TANGERIENS (I imagine them to be like alien oranges).   Also, feel free to correct me of any mistakes I make. This keeps me humble and also encourages me in our friendships because a good friend always tells you the truth!

Now, as far as February foods goes, it’s much like January. I should probably add chocolate to the list though since the little holiday that jumps up in the middle of the month definitely requires it.   So just in case your planning your Valentine’s dessert treat, I’ll add some chocolate-y things to the bottom of the recipe list as well.  Have a tasty month!

And if you’re new to our seasonal eating extravaganza.  Here are the deets:

The above image is to save to your computer desktop as a lovely reminder of what produce is fresh to eat this month. What’s in season not only tastes better but is better for the budget and the environment as it doesn’t have to travel as far to get to your local grocer.  The below image is to save on your phone. And if you make seasonal recipes using any of the ingredients from the produce list above, please share them on instagram with the hashtag #eatseasonal so we can all be inspired by one another!

  1. Oh totally surprised by the sunchokes. My first memory of discovering this vegetable was at a summers farmers market, so I’ve always associated them with the warmer months! Thanks for always bringing such great information to the interwebs! XO

    • They are usually available fresh fall through early spring. They are a root actually related to the sunflower – really random! I think they grow best in cold climates. I’ve only used them a few times for soup actually!

  2. I’ve been seeing sun chokes around and I’m so excited — I look forward to them every year! And I make more mistakes then I care to admit — I blame everything on mommy brain because it never quite goes away. :)

  3. LOL. I am so paranoid about spelling and typos. I cringe when I go back to an old post of mine and see a glaring mistake that no one has pointed out! I’ve missed stopping by to see the seasonal announcements. So glad I did. I am all over your lemon recipes today!
