Winter is often portrayed as a time of lack, not abundance when it comes to food. However, there are a lot of delicious fruits and vegetables on offer during the colder months.

In fact, when it comes to food, Winter is definitely my favourite time of the year. Bring on warming soups and comforting casseroles and roast root vegetables.

All finished off with a delicious lemon tart with a good dollop of clotted cream…

Honouring the rhythms and seasons of life means you’re eating what’s right for your body, eating food at it’s peak and eating food when it’s at it’s cheapest.

To help you plan meals around seasonal produce, I’ve created a downloadable PDF guide to what’s in season during the Winter months. You can print it out and refer to it when meal planning.

This is a general guide only – there will be local variations in climate that will affect exactly what’s in season, when.

Here are a few recipe ideas from the blog for making the most of the Winter produce:

  1. Thanks for this! I have the autumn checklist pinned up on my fridge – time to file it away for next year and replace it with this one. Cheers!

  2. I find that buying seasonal is cheaper too .. I tend to shop at the markets for organic so that the fruits and vegetables have more flavor and a nice texture, they also last longer which means I go to the markets less often.

    Winter in particular is a great time to save time and money because winter fruits last a lot longer than the soft summer fruits.

    One good hint .. something I did a while ago to try and save money … was to taste test different types of apples and oranges. Just buy one of each and try them. You might be surprised at how yummy some of them are. Same with potatoes which I find tend to be rather seasonal too.

    I save time and money on work days by cooking a casserole or thick soup the day before so all I have to do is reheat it when I am tired from work (I work 10 hour shifts so there is little time on work days). It helps me avoid the “I’m too tired to cook so let’s get takeaway” syndrome at the end of the day, I also have a slow cooker that I can set to be finished cooking just as I arrive home from work. I can tell you it is wonderful to walk in the front door to the smell of hot dinner just waiting for me to serve it up. Casseroles and soups are a great way to use up fresh veges that are past their best for steaming (my usual method of cooking). I also find that vegetables lose their texture if you freeze them, but if you put them in a soup or casserole it doesn’t matter.

    1. Hi Laconian,

      Thanks for your tips! You’re right, winter fruits do last longer – I’ve never thought of that! Good tip on trying different types of fruit and veg.

      I’m in love with my slow cooker, but I have to admit, I’ve been a little disorganised lately :).

  3. This list is AMAZING! This is exactly what I was looking for! Looks great, I can see everything on the list and its for us here in AUSTRALIA! Its hard to find list of fruit and veg in season for Aus! Well done! So happy I found this!
