What’s in Season in December?

This time of year the rows halt their growing, the fields begin to get cleared and there isn’t a huge selection at the farmers market. So what’s in season now? Well there are always collards and sweet potatoes but sometimes we forget the less perishable items that make it through the fall like the pecans and apples. This time of year is perfect for baking and pecans and apples are best in deserts! You could bake for yourself, a diner party or for holiday gifts. No matter the reason the smell and warmth of baking seems to welcome winter. Plus who doesn’t love a sweet treat! Here are some resources and recipes to be packaged or eaten warm out of the oven. Just don’t forget to use NC apples and local nuts!
