How to be able to taste the summer all winter long
And much more!
#2 TOP TAKEAWAYS
Michael's top tips on seasonal eating that will not only benefit your health but the environment too:
Taste the summer all year around. Get ready to ferment the foods you enjoy now that won't be around in a couple of months. Look into making your own jam and chutneys that will allow you to enjoy the flavours of summer and fall until next season.
Experiment with dried beans and grains. They're protein rich and great for stews and soups.
Support your local farmer. Be open to trying new fruits and vegeatbales.
Q: Eating for the environment, what’s something we should know, something we won’t be able to find online or in a book?
There are so many other products that farmers want to grow that makes their soil healthier by having that bio-diversity but they need a market to sell those products to — we encourage everyone to try new varieties of fruit and vegetable, it makes for an interesting eating experience, reduces our footprint and directly supports small batch makers and local farmers.
