february picks

By Sandy Todd Webster on Jan 11, 2011

We haven’t quite turned the corner on winter yet, but that’s no reason to stop looking for new ways to use fresh produce. In fact, ward off the winter blahs by experimenting with some of these seasonal February favorites. Based on this month’s picks, you could whip up a pretty mean stir-fry to serve with a high-protein whole grain and some lean meat, fish or poultry. Put your blender to work and make yourself a beautiful green smoothie with some citrus in it to sweeten things up. Baked sweet potato fries? Yum. What about vegetable tacos or burritos with fresh cilantro and some cojita or feta cheese? Stuffed cabbage rolls? There are boundless options. Apply some creativity and expand your eating horizons.

Here’s what’s growing fresh this month around the country: arugula, asparagus, beets, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cilantro, clementines, dill, fennel, grapefruit, kale, leeks, lemons, lettuce, onions, oranges, parsnips, pears, rhubarb, shallots, sweet potatoes, tangelos, tangerines, and turnips.
