Spring into Flavor!

Spring whispers promises of new beginnings, and that extends to the vibrant world of fruits and vegetables. After a winter of hearty root vegetables, it’s time to embrace the lighter, fresher flavors that spring brings. Here are 10 delicious and nutritious fruits and vegetables to add a burst of color and taste to your plate:


Don’t underestimate the humble pea! These tiny green powerhouses are packed with protein, fiber, and vitamins A, C, and K. Easily frozen, these vegetables are great in salads, stir-fries, or simply steamed with a sprinkle of mint.

Brussel Sprouts: Often unfairly maligned, Brussel sprouts have undergone a delicious makeover. Roasting brings out their natural sweetness, while lightly sauteing with garlic and olive oil creates a savory side dish.


Corn on the cob is a quintessential taste of summer, but it actually starts peeking its head out in late spring. Great fresh or frozen look for plump, firm cobs with bright green husks for the ultimate backyard barbecue treat.


This versatile vegetable is a cruciferous superstar, offering a good dose of vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants. Enjoy it raw with a hummus dip, roasted with spices, or even riced for a healthy low-carb alternative.

Fruits: Now let’s talk sweetness! Spring ushers in a bounty of delicious fruits.


The quintessential spring fruit, strawberries are a burst of sunshine in a bite. They’re a perfect source of vitamin C and fiber, making them a guilt-free snack or a delightful addition to yogurt parfaits and smoothies.


These ruby red jewels are not just delicious, they’re also packed with antioxidants and can help reduce inflammation. Enjoy them fresh, frozen for later, or baked into pies and crumbles.


This tart and tangy stalk might technically be a vegetable, but it’s treated like a fruit in the kitchen. Rhubarb shines in jams, compotes, and crumbles, and its unique flavor pairs beautifully with strawberries.

So, embrace the vibrant flavors and health benefits of spring! But don’t forget – frozen fruits and vegetables are just as nutritious as fresh, and often even more convenient. Stock your freezer with these seasonal delights and enjoy the delicious taste of spring all year round.
