What’s In Season
Sweet peas, avocado, collards, cabbage, mustard greens, spinach, radishes, turnip, fennel, wild onions, asparagus, spring lettuces, okra, strawberries and rhubarb are some of the edible delights of May. Depending on your location you may also find: scapes, scallions, green garlic, chard, artichokes, arugula, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts, beets, fava beans, basil, cherries and apricots.
May spices help us lighten up. Three of my favorites now are fenugreek, turmeric and parsley. Fenugreek lights the fires. Turmeric dries and purifies. Parsley cleans and refreshes.
