Weekend Links and Salute Spring Produce Series Begins

It is safe to say that spring has arrived in my northern region. Rhubarb is sprouting in my backyard, fiddleheads are available at the market, and I know sweet strawberries are on their way.

Spring produce has to be the most divine of ingredients and easy to gush over. After months of awkward root vegetables, clumsy squash and pasty bulbs, arrives delicate pea shoots, blush-colored rhubarb and poised asparagus. It’s another class of fruits and vegetables entirely, and merits our full attention and appreciation.

Salute Spring!

This week launches our Salute Spring produce series, and I have assembled a team of experts to bring you their take on these ingredients. Here’s what coming up every day this week:

Next Sunday I’ll wrap the series with a round-up of recipes featuring these five favorite fruits and vegetables of the season. So don’t go anywhere!

Have a wonderful Sunday, and if you’re a mom, Happy Mother’s Day!
