Autumn's In Season
After reading some "diet" books and cook books, the common theme to most of them was Always by Fresh and In Season Produce. Because I've been spoiled in California, I was always able to get just about any fruit or vegetable any time of the year. Since our move, I've been learning to dive deep into my cavemen roots and try to instinctively learn about what fruits and vegetables are best to cook with at a certain time of year. I came across a fantastic list of in-season produce that I thought I would document for myself and share with everyone. Late Summer and Fall is generally considered to be the Harvest Season, so there are many, many different types of fruits and vegetables to choose from around this time. Some of these are fairly exotic. However, many of these I could use for seasonal recipe ideas.
Bell Peppers, Purple
Jerusalem artichokes (these are not an artichoke)
oranges, navel and mandarin
squash, orange flesh
