As we head into June and warmer months in Ontario, locally grown fruits like cherries and strawberries will be in season and at their freshest. Asparagus, Beans, Bok Choy, Broccoli, field cucumber, lettuce, mushrooms, spinach and summer squash, to name a few, will be freshly picked and at their peak in flavour and nutrition. To help decide on spring, summer grocery needs, and get inspiration for recipes, I put together a comprehensive list of some of the wonderful vegetables and fruits that will be in season April through to September. Check it out! Fruits & Vegetables Now In Season, Spring Summer 2017.
While you’re at it, check out this loved recipe for Kiwi Cake Loaf with Lemon Frosting. The bright green, almost creamy flesh of the kiwifruit speckled with tiny black seeds adds a dramatic tropical flair to this kiwi cake. The taste of kiwi is reminiscent of strawberries, melons and bananas, yet with its own unique flavour. Treat yourself!
