Wonderfully written and a great reminder. I've been hearing more and more about seasonal shopping/eating; and it's wonderful to see how easy and tastefully it can be accomplished....

Another way to cook acorn squash is in the microwave - prick the skin well, place it stem end down in a bowl or on a plate (microwave-safe, of course), then nuke on high for about 8 minutes. I then use an oven mitt, cut the squash in half and take out the seeds. The squash should be somewhat mushy when done so it will scoop out easily.

Great well-written article. It was especially nice that instead of just a list of seasonal foods, she included how to cook them. Thanks! I learned a lot and will be trying some new-to-me vegetables.

I always prefer to eat what's seasonal. It's fresher and more nutritious and is generally cheaper.

Meat and fish are also seasonal. Right now the best buys on that front are:

grouse
guinea fowl
lamb
partridge
rabbit
venison
wood pigeon
__________

brill
clams
cod
crab
grey mullet
haddock
halibut
john dory
lemon sole
lobster
mackerel
monkfish
mussels
oysters
pilchard
plaice
pollack
prawns
scallops
sea bass
sea bream
shrimp
squid
turbot
winkles

Local harvests are the best! We grow a fair amount of our own foods and can or freeze them for the winter months. We go to a local pick-ur-own apple orchards and pick our winter supply of apples. They are not 100% ripe but ripen slowly as the winter starts to settle in upon us.

I took advantage of the abundant harvest of fresh fruits and vegetables at the local farmers' market and bought some apples, several smaller pumpkins, and a variety of squashes. I am canning and freezing some, but am definitely enjoying preparing them fresh everyday in a variety of recipes.

I was so excited when I read this article and went to the link for Local Harvest. I found so many local resources. I have been trying to eat green and support local markets. It is more economical for me and better for the environment. Until now I had no idea where to begin and where to go this article gave me that resource!
