What’s in Season: January 27, 2014

The recent snow might have interfered with some of your social plans, but it doesn’t have to change your seasonal fruit regime. Here’s what’s in season with some as well as some tips for how to eat it.

The recent snow might have interfered with some of your social plans, but it doesn’t have to change your seasonal fruit regime. Apples are some of the simplest pleasures of winter eating and Samascott Orchards, a fourth-generation family-owned and -operated farm in Kinderhook, New York, has over 70 varieties.

Here are a few favorites from Brooklyn-based Good Eggs, as well as some squash and pear selections:

Golden Russet apples:

These beauties would make a great apple salsa garnish for this roasted parsnip and sweet potato soup from the Edible Brooklyn Cookbook.
