There’s not a day goes by now when you don’t uncover some new great local food project. This one from Huddersfield features a great seasonal food calendar.
“We in the more privileged nations have become so divorced from food production that it is difficult to remember that vegetables and fruits have a season, and outside of that season they are not available. When you can buy perfect looking strawberries for Christmas lunch it is hard to remember that in Britain this fruit is really not ready for picking until May at the very earliest and by the beginning of October will be finished for the year. Vegetables – and fruit even more so – taste better and have more of the essential vitamins and minerals our bodies need for health if they are picked when they are ready to be picked and eaten as soon afterwards as possible.”
