Your Guide to Spring Produce

From ramps to rhubarb, fresh peas to green beans, Spring has finally sprung, and with it, comes a plethora of delicious seasonal produce just waiting to be enjoyed. In celebration of the season, Joe’s Las Vegas executive chef Mark Lord, has shared a few of his favorite ingredients, as well as some tips and tricks for using them at home. Now let’s get cookin’!

Rhubarb: Rhubarb is a staple Spring ingredient. It is naturally tart, so when buying rhubarb, be sure to look for a deep red color as darker stalks tend to be sweeter than paler ones.Of course you can’t think rhubarb without thinking pie. Strawberry rhubarb pie with vanilla ice cream is a classic and delicious combination. At Joe’s, we feature Strawberry Rhubarb as our seasonal pie of the month for May.

Carrots: While carrots are available year round, there is no better time to enjoy them than Spring. I love to roast them, which brings out their natural sweetness, or use them raw, shaved thin for a salad. At Joe’s we’ve done Roasted Baby Carrots with a Carrot Top Pesto which is delicious. Look for this dish on an upcoming Spring Market Card.

Sugar Snap Peas: Given their natural sweetness, sugar snap peas are great in their most natural form —  raw. If cooking, keep the preparation simple — lightly sautéed with butter and salt — in order to maintain their beautiful flavor.
