Spring has Sprung and what a beautiful season spring is!
Currently in supermarkets across the country you are able to purchase all types of fruits and veggies most of the year round. Now this may appear to seem as though everything is always in season, yet it is not.
There is something to eating in season... fruit & vegetables are much more delicious and full of flavour naturally, and it's definitely more cost effective when buying ingredients that are in season.
Here is a list of Spring fruits and vegetables for Western Australia to keep an eye out for next time your shopping:
Apricots, strawberries, guava, lemon, lime, mango, blueberries, figs, mulberries, oranges (valencia) .
Artichoke, asparagus, cucumber, cauliflower, beans (broad), peas, garlic, brussel sprouts.
And remember, when preparing fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables make sure to serve them with the least amount of fuss as possible. The natural flavours and textures are at their peak, so they don't need to many extras :)
