What’s in season?

shutterstock5In Canada, we’re very lucking to have pristine  and fertile farmland that produces abundant crops. Everything from peaches, tomatoes, strawberries, potatoes, grapes, apples, pears – the list goes on and on.

Buying locally produced food is good for you, the economy, the environment  and the local farmers. Farmers take pride in being good stewards of the land, helping ensure its preservation for future generations. Buying local also means your food comes from closer to home and has to travel less, which in turn has a decreased impact on the environment.

So what’s in season right now? Foodland Ontario has a helpful Availability Guide that you can browse to determine what local produce is currently in season. Then once you’ve gone to your local farmer’s market or grocery store, you can decide what delightfully decadent recipes you’d like to try.  When it comes to cooking with Tofutti, you can substitute sour cream and cream cheese in any recipe with our Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese and Tofutti’s Sour Supreme.  Go ahead and experiment! You’re taste buds will appreciate you’re creativity!
