Food tastes so much better when it is fresh! And it’s healthier!

In order to get fresh it must be in season!  I’ve noticed in the Usa we can find just about anything in our supermarkets but if it’s not in season it’s already old already!   This is because we transport our produce mostly from California and Florida to everywhere.  These are what are in season and popular to eat in Italy now.  They eat seasonally so it doesn’t have to travel very far.  Most people shop at open markets every day to buy fresh and get the best price.  I can’t find Zucchini flowers, citron or fresh peas yet in Chattanooga.

Vegetables in season now in Italy:

Asparagus, beet greens, carrots, dandelion greens, green onions, pearl onions, fave beans, zucchini flowers, new potatoes, peas, radishes, zucchini
