Want to know what fruit and vegetables are in season in January in the UK? Read on!
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 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 useful reminder when I’m going round the supermarket to help remind me what to look for. 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:
The Fruit In Season In January
It’s slim pickings for fruit, with not much in season in January. Better days are coming though, so hang on in there. In the meantime, I’ve got heaps of ideas on how to use up apples and pears so that you don’t get bored of them.
What Vegetables to Eat Now
- Brussels Sprouts
- Cabbage (Savoy and Spring Green)
- Carrots – here’s how to store carrots to stop them from going soft and soggy in your fridge.
- Jerusalem Artichoke
- Potatoes (maincrop)
- Wild Mushrooms
Thankfully vegetables in season in January in the UK are a bit more abundant than fruit!
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 cook Brussels sprouts 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!
