As the weather starts to warm up, we're excited to see an abundance of fresh and flavorful spring produce hitting the markets. From asparagus to strawberries, there are plenty of ingredients to work with in the kitchen.
To kick off the month, let's talk about one of the first signs of spring: asparagus. This versatile vegetable can be grilled, roasted, sautéed, or even eaten raw in salads. Try pairing it with a lemon-herb dressing or a creamy hollandaise sauce.
Next up, we have strawberries. These sweet and juicy berries are perfect for desserts like strawberry shortcake or added to salads for a pop of color. For a fun and easy recipe, try making homemade strawberry ice cream. All you need is strawberries, sugar, heavy cream, and a blender.
Another spring favorite is artichokes. These flavorful thistles can be steamed, grilled, or stuffed with a variety of fillings. Try serving them with a garlic-lemon butter or season them with Lost Buddy Spices Garden Salt
Finally, let's not forget about ramps. These wild leeks have a unique and pungent flavor that adds a delicious kick to dishes. Try sautéing them with eggs, adding them to pasta dishes or even making a ramp pesto to put on sandwiches and pasta.
We hope this has inspired you to incorporate some of these delicious spring ingredients into your cooking. Stay tuned for next month's edition where we'll be showcasing more seasonal produce and delicious recipes. Happy cooking!
