NOVEMBER — WHAT’S IN SEASON GUIDE
Is there anything that screams fall more than apple picking and apple cider? I’m not a huge fan of apple pie; however, I just love them any other way. I never leave the grocery store without a huge bag of apples.
I’m not a huge fan of beets. I tolerate them, but I don’t go out of my way to eat them. But this year I plan to cook with them more.
My kids never get tired of broccoli. They happily eat it and would eat it with every dinner if I let them. I tend to just roast it with olive oil, garlic, and a little kosher salt. I love it when it is just starting to turn dark which means the flavor becomes a little nutty. YUM!
Brussels sprouts are back in season, but I don’t make these as often as should. They are super fun when you can find them on the stalk…in fact Trader Joe’s had them on the stalk last time I was there.
I love grabbing a few bags of fresh cranberries at the beginning of holiday season and using them in various recipes. Of course, I love making holiday cranberry sauce with fresh berries, but it’s fun to use them in other ways too.
Fennel has a sweet licorice flavor and adds a great crunchy texture to salads. Also, fennel is full of fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, and vitamin B-6.
Kiwi (also known as kiwifruit or Chinese gooseberry) are delicious. The green flesh is sweet and tangy, but they are also packed with plenty of health benefits. They are full of nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin K,vitamin E, folate, and potassium. They also have a lot of antioxidants and are a good source of fiber too.
I love pear season! I love the tenderness and sweetness of pears. They are delicious, aren’t they! Plus they are high in fiber, they are a great source of antioxidants and Vitamin C too.
When ripe, persimmons have sort of a honey flavor. However, there are two types of persimmons the hachiya (acorn shaped) and the fuyu (tomato shaped). Fuyu persimmons can be enjoyed in various stages of ripeness: from firm to slightly soft. Don’t confuse them with their cousins, Hachiya persimmons, which are astringent when underripe. Hachiyas have to be custardy-soft before they are edible, making them a great fit for baking.
Wondering if you need to peel a persimmon before you eat it? The hachiya persimmons peel is slightly pucker-y. And the fuyu persimmons pell is always sweet and the skin is completely edible with no bitterness at all.
recently fell in love with pomegranates. They are crazy expensive in the store though, so I planted a tree too. lol My tree doesn’t produce a lot yet, so I end up buying a bunch this time of year for salads and snacking. Check out the best way to get the seeds out of a pomegranate HERE.
It’s PUMPKIN time! For all you crazy people…the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at Starbucks too. I pick up a bunch of pumpkins early in the season and make my own jars of roasted pumpkin and pumpkin butter to use throughout the season.
Wanna know what I love even more than potatoes? Sweet Potatoes! I usually just eat them plain…no butter, no sugar, no cinnamon. Just a baked sweet potato and a juicy steak and I’m set!
Turnips are full of minerals, antioxidants, vitamin C, and plenty of dietary fiber. They are also a low-calorie vegetable with only 28 calories per 100 gram serving .
Winter squash are full of vitamin C, dietary fiber, vitamin B6, manganese, copper, and potassium. Winter squash have a hard skin and flesh. Acorn, butternut, spaghetti, as well as pumpkin are all considered winter squash.
