what to buy and when

I thought this was pretty nifty for anyone looking to cook with seasonal ingredients. The Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard Medical School has published a quick reference guide for the New England area (and another guide for the Mid-Atlantic area) that gives a run-down of the fruits and vegetables that are in season by month. The aim here is to encourage people to purchase and eat more locally grown produce.

The full New England guide can be found on:
http://chge.med.harvard.edu/programs/food/food_ne.html
which includes hyperlinks to detailed information, like nutritional info and storage info, about the produce of your choice.

It’s hard to find, but there are a few recipes posted as well.  Luckily for you, I did all the sleuthing so you don’t have to.

There are even two recipes from Dan Barber of Blue Hill.  Have fun! ^_^
