Food For Winter and Warmth
January and February are good months for hibernation. Everything feels slower after the high energy that runs through November and December. Vegetables and produce make themselves scarce, too. I was doing some research to find what is in season during these months, and, if I were to go only by what I read online, that list would be boiled down to little more than kohlrabi and pecans. I’ve never found these resources to be too accurate, though; preferring to talk straight with the people that grow the food — or provide the outlets to buy it — instead. This is how you find out that while, yes, winter squash are in season, those intense summer-of-2015 rains likely messed with a good amount of those fall crops, so you might see less of them at the markets this year as a result.
