During the holiday season, warming soups, pies, and casseroles become a regular hit. The warmth and smells from a pot simmering on the stove for several hours or a casserole or pie baking makes this time of year joyful, nostalgic, and heartwarming. It's the perfect time to include more fall seasonal fruits ad vegetables in your diet through hearty, home cooked, delicious recipes that deliver the recommended daily serving of produce.
To be prepared for the natural influx of cooking and baking, we’ll be stocking up on varieties of winter squash, hana sweet potatoes, Japanese sweet potatoes, garnet yams, purple sweet potatoes, and, very soon, jewel yams. For potatoes we are carrying reds, russets, yukons, and purple potatoes. After Halloween, we’ll have sugar pie pumpkins for making pumpkin pie from scratch! Currently, though, we have gorgeous pumpkins in different colors, including small decorative pumpkins and carving pumpkins!
For fruit we have fall items, which include persimmons, pomegranates, kiwis, citrus, apples, pears, and grapes. It’s a wonderful time to prepare jams and pie fillings made from these delectable fruits.
We all know the importance of maintaining a balanced diet with plenty of veggies and fruits. So be sure to stop by and check out our produce section as the seasons changes and the fall and winter holidays come upon us.
