Everyone’s getting pumped to find out who the number 1 seeds are going to be in NCAA March Madness, but we’re even more pumped to find out which produce ingredients reigns supreme this month! In the spirit of March Madness, we’re hosting our very own battle, filled with the freshest ingredients from every season.
Each day, we’ll have a new match-up between two produce ingredients. We’re beginning with the two spring ingredients, strawberry and artichoke. Which ingredient would you rather eat or which do you enjoy cooking with most? Whichever you prefer, make sure to vote for it so it can move ahead and have a chance to become the March Produce Champion! Your vote determines which fruit or vegetable makes it to the next round.
Tell your friends about this competition, too! We want to make sure your voice is heard!
The first match-up will take place on March 1, 2011. Come back to Chew on That to cast your vote! Remember, voting only lasts for 24 hours!
Just when you thought you’d seen everything, along comes Purple Cauliflower. Sold under the name of Foxy CauliColor, this purple variety is combined with yellow, orange and white cauliflower to turn ordinary veggies into an extraordinary meal. I bet even your kids will love these fun colors.
The purple variety of cauliflower was developed by a Dutch company and is 10 times higher in antioxidants than the white variety. The Grocers Review has a great article giving a brief history of this unique veggie and outlining some of its health benefits.
