What’s in Season in January?
There are a few Farmers Markets in Fresno County that are still open this time of year. January is two days away and there are many crops still in season.
What’s in season in January, you ask?
January has an abundance of leafy greens, sprouts, citrus fruits and nuts. That sounds like the beginning of a perfectly delicious salad to me!
Broccoli and cauliflower are two vegetables in season. I don’t know about you, but there are some amazing dishes on Pinterest! I wish I had Pinterest when my kids were little… I couldn’t figure out how to get them to eat anything healthy. Buffalo cauliflower nuggets? Yes please!
What can I do with citrus? Here are some ideas: Lemon curd, orange scones, citrus and avocado salad, citrus maple syrup, citrus salmon, lemon glazed anything, lime cupcakes, orange chicken, lime Bundt cake and don’t forget about marmalade!
If you are like me and buy too much when you’re at the market, consider canning your extras or sharing with a neighbor.
According to CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture), there is plenty available! Check out the list from CUESA to see what’s in season in January!
