Are you ready for spring? From wild leeks to fresh asparagus, we have all the local Ontario produce you need to make your tastiest meals yet. Step away from your desk and onto a picnic blanket with these fresh spring favourites!
This ultra-popular spring favourite is available now for a limited time - only a couple weeks! Super versatile and very tasty, wild leeks can be eaten raw or cooked. Need a hint? Wow your friends and family with this pasta dish.
Asparagus is the classic spring vegetable that everyone knows and loves, but did you know there’s a difference between local and imported asparagus? Local asparagus is softer, less stringy, it also cooks and tastes much better.
Sweet and delicious, rhubarb is definitely a spring favourite. While rhubarb is excellent for desserts like these squares, don’t be afraid to it in unexpected ways, like this salsa recipe - it’s great with chicken!
Fiddleheads, the furled fronds harvested from a young fern, are antioxidant rich, a source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and are high in iron and fiber. With a spinach-like flavor, they can be steamed or sautéed and used as a healthy addition to any dish. Need some inspiration? Try this salad!
With a cool, refreshing aftertaste, mint is a fragrant and delicious herb chock full of health benefits. Whether it’s steeped in hot water, mixed in your mojito, or used as a garnish, mint is just the herb you need this spring!
Crispy with just a hint of spice, our organic radishes are a fresh and flavourful addition to any dish. Use them in wraps, on your toast with cream cheese and cucumber, in salads, or as a garnish! This week, our red radish comes from our city farm in Downsview Park, Toronto.
