Buying canned fruits and vegetables
Buying canned fruits and vegetables

Canned fruits and vegetables are great to keep on hand for when you don’t have fresh or frozen ones. Look for “low sodium” or “no salt added” on the label when buying canned vegetables. For canned fruit, choose the ones canned in 100% juice or water instead of syrup.

Produce Spotlight: Apples and Cranberries
Apples and Cranberries

Pick of the crop:

Apples: Choose apples that are firm, without soft or discolored spots. Apples will keep up to six weeks in plastic bags in the refrigerator. Or keep them in sight for a quick, easy snack.

Cranberries: Choose shiny, plump cranberries, and remove any that are soft or shriveled. Seal them in plastic bags. Refrigerate them for up to 2 months, or freeze them up to a year.

Recipes: Visit Massachusetts Locally grown featuring recipes for fruits and vegetables grown in Massachusetts and found at most local farmers’ markets.
