Tips for making spring recipes

  1. Go big and go green! Spring is the perfect time to incorporate as many greens into your meals as possible. Leafy greens like cabbage and spinach are in peak season and fresh herbs are much easier to find – or even grow on your own. To make life easier, once you’ve bought your greens, wash, cut and store them so that they can be eaten at any time. 
  2. Shop local if possible. Spring is an ideal time to shop at your local farmers market or plan to visit farms in your area. The benefits are endless. The ingredients are delicious and you get to know exactly where your food is coming from.
  3. Know your asparagus. For maximum juicy, grassy flavor, look for firm stalks that stand up straight, have smooth skin and tight heads. Asparagus benefits from little to no cooking. When you overcook it, you risk a mushy texture that no one likes. Slice them up raw and pile on crostini or thinly shave for a fresh salad.
  4. Store rhubarb properly for best results. Rhubarb is a classic spring ingredients. As many know, rhubarb leaves are toxic. To store, trim and discard any leaves or roots and wrap loosely in a plastic bag before storing in the fridge. Rhubarb also stores exceptionally well in the freezer so you can chop it up and save for a little taste of spring in mid-winter. Wait to wash rhubarb until you’re ready to use it.
