It’s a new month so it’s time to take a look at What’s in Season for June in your area. You can use the What’s in Season Map to see what items you might not only be able to save money on but also plan ahead to freeze some for the months when the prices are much higher. This is just another of the 31 Ways to Save on Your Grocery Budget without Coupons.
Here’s what’s projected to be in season for Illinois for June:
Asparagus, Cabbage, Cherries, Eggplant, Garlic, Nectarines, Okra, Peas, Rhubarb and Strawberries.
If you haven’t tried some of these items before, consider trying something new. I’m having a lot of fun with my What’s New For Dinner series and using some foods that I’ve never tried before. This last week, I tried leeks for the first time and they will now be on my list for future months.
Hope you find ways to save a little money on Seasonal items. Not only are the prices lower but they tend to be fresher items, too. Don’t forget to find a local farmer’s market in your area to get even fresher items.
