It may seem like there are fewer options in the winter for vibrant, fresh food. It is the land of potatoes, squashes and other veggies that keep well in a root cellar. But, this Italian Egg Soup recipe that is found on Eating Well’s website is a cheerful, light soup that really brightens my day. I thrive on local food but I also try to eat in season. In the winter citrus fruits and avocados are in season, they may have to travel a bit and I do appreciate that and take advantage of them only at the right time of year.
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out your favorite farm and sign up for a CSA this coming year. Most are already taking memberships and I am sure a few are already full. These days with early, regular and late season memberships you can cover 3/4 of the year with fresh, local food!
