One of the best ways to save money on groceries, is to shop seasonally. This means purchasing foods when they are in season near you. These items generally don’t need to travel very far to get to your grocery store and are more abundant when in season, and this allows you to save big! Every month, I’ll be sharing a feature on what to shop for this season for our area of North Eastern Florida. In the month of June, the star fruits and veggies are going to be: avocados, mangos, watermelon, tomatoes, cantaloupe, oranges, guava, mushrooms, potatoes, sweet corn, passion fruit, and papaya.
So now you know, but what is the best way to use these yummy summer ingredients? Try combining avocado, cherry tomatoes, and corn in a refreshing salsa. Or, swap in mango chunks for a sweeter tropical spin. Fruit salad is another great way to incorporate seasonal fruits in a simple yet satisfying way.
