Although it’s been quite cold, windy and rainy in Brussels lately, winter officially hits us 21 December, tomorrow!
My faithful readers know I only use seasonal ingredients and local when possible. So what is winter bringing us?
from AUTUMN to WINTER – still a few fruit and veg that got in season in autumn we can carry through January:
squashes ( pumpkin, butternut)
persimmons ( not local to Belgium)
clementines/mandarins ( not local to Belgium)
WINTER – it is the season of everything cabbage and root veg
white, red and green cabbages ( kale)
all citrus fruits ( not local to Belgium – except lemons from my moms garden)
all exotic fruits like mango, passion fruit, pineapple, papaya, kiwi, pomegranate ( not local to Belgium)
