What’s in season in July

The middle of Winter and the cold weather is here. Icy mornings and warm beds, the feeling of hibernation, who identifies? 😂 ⁠

A sense of slowing down and slow cooking. It can be slow-growing for some of our winter produce too!⁠

Delicious tangelos (the ones you’re seeing on this picture) are here to add to the citrus frenzy we have in winter. ⁠
A cross between a mandarin and grapefruit, they really are a point of difference with their unique flavour.⁠

Mandarins, navel oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit are still abundant during this month. Giving us our Vitamin C kick to beat any cold that may dare to approach.⁠

Passionfruit and Pawpaws are joining pineapples this month to keep the tropical feel going in this cold weather for a bit longer. Apples, avocados, custard apples, rhubarb and strawberries are all still available.⁠

Celeriac shows itself this month, a versatile vegetable with a distinctive flavour, it can be eaten raw, roasted, steamed and mashed. Have you tried? Celeriac chips make a nice difference from potato chips.⁠

The winter root vegetables – parsnip, turnip and swede are all here to join the trusty carrot, potato, beetroot and sweet potato. All giving substance to stews, soups and roasts.⁠

Brussels sprouts, loved or hated, are with us in July. They join their bigger Brassica cousins – cabbages, cauliflower, broccoli and kale. This underrated vegetable is delicious lightly stir-fried or roasted.⁠

Globe Artichoke brings a bit of extra interest this month with its heart of goodness. ⁠

Still going strong in July are leek, silverbeet, onion, Asian greens, pumpkin, celery, fennel, ginger, garlic and spring onion.⁠
