Fruit and Vegetables in Season in February

leeks

Wondering what’s in season in February?  Wonder no more!  I’ve got the definitive list of the fruits and vegetables in season in Britain this month.

I also had a bit of a brainwave this month to make these lists even more useful for you!  I’ve attached a PDF download of this list (without photos) so you can easily print it off and pin it to your fridge, or fold it up and carry it in your bag when you go shopping so you know what to look for!  Why I didn’t think of it sooner, I do not know.  The good thing is I’ve also taken the liberty to go back and do it for every month’s Fruit and Vegetables in Season post so far.  I hope this is a useful addition for you!

Anyway, on to the fruit and veg in season in the UK.  February sees leeks and cabbage at their very best.  However, there are lots of other good things in season this month.  The old favourites – apples and pears.  And that winter staple – kale!

Fruit and Vegetables in Season in January

Want to know what fruit and vegetables are in season in January? Read on!

I’m back sharing what fruit and vegetables are in season this month.  January is a bit of a leaner month when it comes to produce. However, it is a bumper month for kale, glorious kale!  Are you a fan?  I’ve always found it to be a bit on the bitter side, but I did recently hear an unusual tip to improve its taste. Yes, you should give the leaves and stem a good old massage!  Apparently, this helps alleviate the bitterness and chewiness often associated with kale.  Who knew?!

To help you remember what’s in season in January then I’ve made you a free PDF printable of this post (without images) that you can save and print off to pin to your fridge or carry with you in your bag.  I find it really useful reminder when I’m going round the supermarket. You can find the free January Fruit and Veg printable guide here right here.

Now on with the show – here is what else is in season in January:

What Are You Eating?

What are you eating this month? My partner makes a mean vegetarian and vegan-friendly curry with potatoes. It’s my very favourite. I also have a recipe for brussels sprout gratin that’s a firm favourite in our house. Basically all the hale and hearty food to see us through this cold and wintery month. Feel free to share your favourite January recipes or dishes in the comments for some seasonal inspiration!

Now, don’t mind me, I’m off to massage my kale!
