Please tell me how February is just days away already…wasn’t it just New Year’s Day yesterday?  Ready or not, February is on the horizon, which means it’s time to celebrate this month’s bountiful produce through this February Seasonal Produce Guide.

Many people consider winter produce to be quite blah, to put it bluntly.  And maybe it is when you compare it to the huge variety that you can find in spring, summer, and fall?  Even though I’m missing fresh berries something fierce right now, there’s so much to embrace about winter produce.  I think it’s all about finding a variety of ways to prepare it to make it more interesting, as well as trying new types of produce.

I never knew I loved turnips, or chicory, or fennel until about 3-4 years ago.  And winter greens?  I’d never used them at all.  Now I love them all and look forward to winter every year.  Every season has produce that I welcome when the season starts and miss when it ends.

My January Seasonal Produce Guide covered beets, bok choy, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, grapefruit, kale, leeks, lemons, parsnips, sweet potatoes, and winter squash, so if you missed that, go check it out!  This month covers the following winter produce:
