Sharing 15+ January Produce Recipes to get you through the deep freeze of winter. These recipes are comforting and delicious!
I know Fresh January Produce Recipes are something some of us might not consider. Because, let’s be honest, what’s really growing in winter in the US? Yes, I realize not all of you are in the States, but everyone goes through the season. And for me, that’s gearing up for winter.
What produce is available for January Produce Recipes?
So, again, what’s “seasonal” in winter? Produce that has a long shelf life based on storage. That’s why winter is full of root vegetables and gourds. And citrus. These foods can store for long periods of time under the correct conditions.
Where I live, summer produce is slowly dwindling. We have root vegetables like rutabagas, squashes, potatoes, leeks, cabbage, beets, carrots, and onions. There are some hearty greens like chard, kale, and collards. Then there’s citrus. Grapefruit, lemons, limes, etc.
This leads to a lot of comfort food recipes and vibrant citrus recipes. I am a range of recipes from breakfast and brunch to dinner. I have Meyer lemons, sweet potatoes, pears, cabbage, and broccoli just to name a few of the winter produce in this delicious round-up of recipes.

^Loaded Sweet Potatoes au Gratin^ are not your typical sweet potato side dish. Packed with Gruyere cheese, bacon, and an herb infused cream, it’s sure to be a hit at your holiday dinners with family and friends.
^Wild Rice and Sprouts Pilaf^ is the perfect side dish to any holiday meal. Any meal for that matter. With long grain and wild rice simmered with Brussels sprouts and thick cut bacon, it’s a side dish you’re family will love!
^Creamy Broccoli Cheddar Quiche^ is super creamy and less egg like in taste and texture. Remembering a recipe from my childhood, the cream is scalded before being added to the egg mixture making a custard based creamy quiche.
