It’s berry season! Strawberries and blueberries are cheap right now, which means it’s prime time to make some easy desserts and other Southern recipes. Berries are just perfect when the sun is shining and it’s a beautiful spring day. They’re so juicy and refreshing.
It’s smart to pay attention to when fruit and veggies are in season and start planning to make recipes using those ingredients. It saves lots of money, and it’s a great excuse to eat plant based nutrients when they’re at their peak. A strawberry in May is so much better than a strawberry in December. You can look to guides like this Seasonal Southern foods list, or you can just see what’s in abundance in your grocery store’s produce section. Usually whatever’s in season is right by the door.
