Di stagione a maggio: frutta, verdura e pesce da comprare

What's good about the season in May? Here are seasonal vegetable and fish fruits in May to buy in this late spring month. In fact, never as this year time flies and at the same time never passes: always in the house, we have less chance of shopping, with the local markets closed and only the supermarkets available, but we have more time to cook. May marks a big change on the fruit and vegetable front, as well as de fish. Unfortunately, finding fresh and Italian seasonal products in supermarkets is not always easy. So it takes a surplus of attention when we do the spending.

In May we can finally enjoy fresh strawberries and strawberries of red and pulpy woodland, but apricots also come along and above all one of my favorite fruits: cherries. Technically, watermelons also begin at the end of May, but I suggest you don't buy them until June so as not to incur burning disappointments, So be content to try some of my RECIPES WITH STRAWBERRIES, reading the article on Calories, PROPERTY’ NUTRIENTS AND VARIETA’ . If you love cherries, you'll definitely find something to your liking among my RECIPES WITH CHERRIES, and don't forget to take advantage of the latest nespoles, if you're lucky enough to find some.

In May the peppers (rich in vitamins, try some of my RECIPES WITH PEPPERS) I'm in full swing, as well as courgettes. Fresh capers stand out among the new arrivals, but especially the first tomatoes and green beans, with which to prepare tasty salads and omelettes.
