Sure strawberries are yummy – but they are sweeter at $1.00 a pound (in June) than they are at $4.00 a pound in November!
Here is a quick list of what should be rock bottom prices by middle of December – it’s great to stock up if you can/freeze or simply enjoy as a fresh treat!
Keep in mind that simple rule of $1.00 or less for a pound of produce – make sure to weigh items in bags and get the heavier bags! If the sale price is per item (like lettuce – $.69 each) – weigh a few and get the heaviest one.
Leeks are on the list — I have a great leek and potato soup, I think I need to dust off the recipe!
Think lemon chicken, baked grapefruit, german treats lake sweet sour cabbage, hearty soup made with broccoli or cauliflower and of course add cheese because we live in Wisconsin!
Fruit (a LOT of citrus — great time of year to stock up on vitamin C)
- red cabbage
- green cabbage
Always a good buy
