Right now, cabbage and okra are the stars in the Southern region while beets and rhubarb are shining in the West. If you live in the Central region, look for cherries, peas and strawberries and if you’re in the Northeast you’ll want to grab some asparagus and spinach!
If you’re living out West, you’ll definitely want to pick up some rhubarb and try this recipe for Orange Rhubarb Chutney. With the combination of spices and sweet notes of orange, the flavors are sure to stand out. This condiment pairs great with vegetable or poultry dishes!
We love the idea of pickled okra and this recipe from Chef Hugh Acheson. If you’re living in the South, this pickle recipe featuring in season okra is certain to impress when paired with cocktails or the perfect BBQ platter.
Nothing screams summer like fresh strawberries! If you’re out in the Central region try this flavor packed marmalade featuring sweet in season strawberries and tart lemon. It makes for a great spread for breakfast or a midday snack.
