Seasonal Ibiza produce in spring | IbizaFoodie
Spring is one of the mildest season of the year and its synonym of life, youth, air and sun. With her arrives the green scenery to the countryside and the colour explosion to the gardens.
We review the available products this time of the year on the island. To acquire Ibizan seasonal products reduces the environmental damage caused by shipping foods, besides helping local food production and avoiding intermediaries between the local farmer and the consumer.
Another advantage associated to local consumption is to enjoy the health benefits of eating fresh unprocessed fruits and vegetables, in addition to be tastier and richer in nutritional value.
Spring veggies are an important source of fibre and micronutrients.Is the perfect time of the year to cleanse our system with vegetables such as artichoke, asparagus or celery as well as a wide variety of green leaves foods (spinach, chard, kale). Is also the season of tomatoes, carrots and lettuce, which are the perfect choice to prepare fresh salads according to the good weather.
Spring is also the season of a wide array of fruits such as oranges and lemons that lasts until the end of April, and loquats, peaches and strawberries belonging to the month of May.
From the land is time of lamb, chicken, free-range eggs and goats cheese. From the sea, now is the season of gerret, red mullets, cuttlefish and rays.
