Winter

Just because the Northeast United States freezes over from December to February, and most of our local seasonal produce slows down – the hardy cold-storage options like apples and root vegetables, and the late-harvested greens such as broccoli rabe and collards, are veterans of the cold-season farmers’ market – it doesn’t mean we’re not thinking of new recipes. Winter is a time for craving and creating rich, hearty soups and stews, working our way through the last year’s freezer and pantry stock, as well, of course, as baking seasonal treats for holiday parties. What are your winter favorites?
