Seasonable vegetables to buy and eat in December
Eating seasonal produce throughout the year is a great way to ensure we’re putting the freshest, and most environmentally friendly food we can on our plates. Following the produce of the moment is also a great way of mixing up the meals in our repertoire and getting inventive in the kitchen.
Here’s our top pick of what December has to offer us in the UK:
- Brussel sprouts
- Savoy cabbage
- Sloes (forage pick)
- Spring green cabbage
