How to enjoy winter produce

As the January doldrums arrive, we crave hearty, warming meals. Soups roasts and stews abound, but these heavy dishes can make us feel sluggish and want to hibernate even more. I’m all for warming from within, but don’t forget the veggies.

Many farmers markets operate year- round, and if you don’t have one nearby, even grocery stores stock plenty of fresh produce. Wise shoppers eat seasonally; this is healthy and economical. You simply will not find a beautiful tomato or a locally grown strawberry in January at any price, so let’s embrace what may be available. Think robust late-fall roots and cruciferous vegetables, or late-season apples and pears that farmers can store well.
