What's Fresh This Winter?

Written by 

Fresh produce selections in the winter months can sometimes seem pretty bleak and costly. But there really is plenty to choose from if you just know where to look. Did you know that the frozen food section of your grocery store is a great source for fresh produce? Yes, fresh in the frozen section! This is something that the local food sales rep. knows very well and helps to keep the quality level high in our favorite restaurant menus and can be taken advantage of in your own home. Something good to know is that food that is harvested, destined for your grocer's freezer is picked at the peak of ripeness, blanched and quick frozen prior to packaging. As a result, the frozen food is often times more 'fresh' and of a higher quality than frozen. Several advantages that are available with frozen produce are the highest level of ripeness at harvest, short cook times prior to freezing and packaging ensure the brightest colors and flavors as well as preserving the nutrient levels far better than further processed foods. Additionally, another advantage of frozen produce is that there is virtually no price fluctuation year round. Each year when the largest producers of frozen foods make their deals with farmers they secure solid pricing that hold for the entire season and 'futures' deals further ensure price stability regardless of the weather in the winter months.
