TIP OF THE DAY: Spring Fruits & Vegetables

Spring brings an abundance of sweet produce: fruits and vegetables.

Some of our favorites are fleeting: morel mushrooms, ramps, and green garlic.

Sauté them with asparagus and garlic: truly delicious!

Here’s a full list of spring fruits and vegetables, and our menu for a spring-focused dinner.

Don’t overlook rhubarb, a spring favorite that, while botanically a vegetable, makes delicious desserts.

  • Fava beans
