What to Cook with Your August Produce

Not only will you save money by buying produce in-season, but if you can grow your own or find it locally, the bonus is amazing flavor. And although the calendar may say August, those of us with shorter growing seasons are likely still harvesting items that were seasonal in June or July.

Last year, I did a Preserving Your Harvest series. This focused on popular fruits and vegetables harvested each month—May through October—and the best ways to preserve each of them. Here are my favorite ways to preserve August produce so I can enjoy them year-round.

This year, I’ll be giving you delicious, nourishing recipes for cooking with your harvest each month!
