Fresh and Local Spring Recipes

Use what’s in season to create delicious, healthy meals. Our spring recipes rely on fresh and local foods potentially available in your area.

Seasonal cookbook
Every kitchen needs a seasonal cookbook, and you simply can’t go wrong with the super-user-friendly "Serving Up the Harvest: Celebrating the Goodness of Fresh Vegetables" by Andrea Chesman (Storey, 2007). Organized by individual veggie rather than by recipe type — with plenty of tips for growing, harvesting, measuring and cooking each ingredient — it makes cooking in season a snap.
