January Seasonal Produce Guide

Written by Becky

Todays marks a new year!  Can I get a hallelujah?!! Above you’ll find a fresh Seasonal Produce Guide, designed by one of my favorite artists, Nelson Hansen, along with a great list of seasonal recipes below. This year’s designs are better than ever; I mean have you ever seen a more beautiful image of a turnip?! Every month here on the Vintage Mixer, on the 1st of the month, you can find a new produce list with seasonal ingredients to stock your kitchen with and inspiration for what to do with all of them.  Please share what you’re cooking by using the hashtags #eatseasonal and if you use one of my recipes I’d love to see those too so tag #vintagemixer.

I feel like there’s a big let down in January, the holidays are over and its dark and even a little dreary around here.  I don’t know about you but I may need a little pick me up or two. A good cocktail or some comforting food amongst all of the lighter food that usually accompanies the new year may just be needed in my world. And don’t get me wrong, I’m happy about the New Year, especially after the year we’ve had but I also need something exciting on the horizon.  Today’s produce list and recipe guide has a perfect mix of winter comforts like lemon ricotta pancakes and that blood orange olive oil cake I made last year, along with healthy foods perfect for resolutions, like my winter super food bowls and roasted chicken and squash. I feel like many of the healthy options below can even cross over into comfort foods, like butternut squash soup and my Brussels Sprout galette with goat cheese. So weather you need something comforting or something light I think I’ve got you covered here.

Just as a little reminder and for those of you who may be finding this guide for the first time.  The above image is to be saved on your desktop as a reminder of what produce is in season. Fresh is always best to cook with!  And the below image is for your phone. It’s kinda fun to change up the image on your phone every month (at least I think so ;))
