January Seasonal Produce Guide

January Seasonal Produce Guide is your guide to what produce is in season and a variety of recipes to incorporate it in!

January Seasonal Produce Guide 2017

This January Seasonal Produce Guide is the first installment of my new monthly series!  New year, new series, right?  I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a very long time, and dappled with by doing some seasonal round ups over a year and a half ago, but sadly never stuck with it.

One reason why I didn’t stick with it was because I wasn’t really sure seasonal produce guides were something that my readers wanted.  We’re mid-way through our first reader survey (which is still going on now), and out of the responses I’ve seen thus far, 83% of you are interested in seasonal produce guides!

I was so happy to see that, and got right on putting this together for you before January slips away.  If you haven’t taken the survey yet, you can find it here —-> 2017 Flavor the Moments Reader Survey.

Just one note regarding this January Seasonal Produce Guide….I didn’t include every single type of produce because that could get quite lengthy.  I may change that over time, and if you have any input about what you’d like to see, I’d love to hear it.

Now, on with the guide!
