I'll be doing another post with seasonal recipes on Thursday, so if you have any awesome recipes, email them to me at consciousshopperblog at gmail dot com. Or post them on your personal blog and email me the link.
Apple season starts this month, so I'd really love a good applesauce recipe if you have one! Or apple butter!
To find out what's in season in your area, you can google "produce availability" and the name of your state, or choose your state on PickYourOwn.org. The latter has to be the worst designed and yet most valuable website I've seen. Anything you want to know about pick-your-own farms and preserving foods can be found there.
If you live in North Carolina, you will likely see the following fruits and vegetables at the farmer's market this month: apples, butter beans, cabbage, cantaloupe, field peas, grapes, green beans, leafy greens, okra, peaches, peanuts, pumpkin, squash, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, watermelon, zucchini.
