Produce in Season for June

May is almost done and we are entering the bountiful months of June-Oct for Quebec produce. Just coming into season are asparagus, Swiss chard, spinach, fennel, water melon, rhubarb and lettuce greens of all sorts.

If you haven’t tried it we suggest cooking asparagus on a hot grill after being rubbed with olive oil, salt and pepper. All sorts of veggies are great cooked over a hot grill, mushrooms, broccoli, and eggplant just to name a few. If your veggies are small enough to fit through the grill slits, then buy a cheap cooling rack. The cooling rack can be place right on top of the grill, and the veggies cooked on top. Just use a metal spatula to move them around to help cook evenly.
