Buy in season and save money. Here’s a free downloadable Australian Winter seasonal fruit and vegetable guide.
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:
- Lemon, lime and passionfruit curd (passionfruit season is just ending here in QLD)
- Pineapple and ginger cordial
- Semolina porridge with spiced Winter fruit compote
- French lemon tart
- Apple pancakes
- Orange and poppy seed muffins
- Caramelised onion frittata
- Paprika chicken with cabbage
- Cauliflower soup
- Potato and Leek Soup
