Fruits & Vegetables in Season this August

1 August 2017
Box of Homegrown Mandarins

It is the last month of winter and spring is just around the corner. I am often guilty of wanting to skip winter. However here I am reminding myself to cherish each day, even the cold ones. It is time to slow cook some delicious winter veggies, snuggle up with a blanket and watch a good movie. Enjoy the Saturday morning sleep-ins, hot water bottles and scarves (oh how I love my scarves!). There are plenty of things to love, even in Winter.

This August we say goodbye to dates, custard apples, nashi pears and quinces which are no longer in season. On the bright side, blood oranges and cumquats are now at their best!

Happy eating!
