Seasonal and simple
“Seasonal and simple: A guide for enjoying fresh fruits and vegetables” is a guide to help you select, store and prepare fresh fruits and vegetables. The recipes use simple preparations and seasonings, so you can taste the goodness of a fruit or vegetable at the peak of its flavor.
The fruits and vegetables are listed in the guide by their growing season. Also included are each fruit and vegetable’s nutrients and their associated health benefits.
Use this guide to choose fruits and vegetables in season and get all the benefits — food that tastes good, is good for you and is reasonably priced!
