Local farms may be a frozen tundra right now, but that doesn’t mean you have to resort to processed foods. There are plenty of fruits and vegetables that are considered in-season during winter and available at your local grocer. In fact, citrus fruits – like oranges, clementines and grapefruits – tend to be at their sweetest this time of the year. For optimal taste, look for ones that feel heavy for their size and have a bright colored skin. See more winter produce ideas >
