August, the end of summer ! (and nearly the end of the month-oops) 💛
Eating and baking with fruits in season, especially if they are sourced locally improves the taste and the nutrition of these foods. This is because they are ripened naturally in the sun and don’t have to be artificially ripened, refrigerated and transported like many fruits grown out of season do. Storing fruits for a long period of time reduces their vitamin, antioxidant and phytoestrogen content and also compromises taste. Below is a little table of the fruits that are perfectly in season right now 🍉.
