COLUMBIA, Mo. – Finding fresh, locally grown produce can be at your fingertips when you are traveling in Missouri this summer.
Seasonal and Simple is a free iPhone, iPad and Android app developed through University of Missouri Extension. Based on the MU Extension publication “Seasonal and Simple,” the app guides you through selecting, preparing and storing fresh fruits and vegetables grown in Missouri, according to dietitian and MU Extension associate Cindy DeBlauw.
Through Seasonal and Simple, you can check if your favorite produce is in season. If you’re on the road, a county-by-county listing of Missouri farmers markets will help you find a place to shop for fresh, locally produced fruits and vegetables. The app includes recipes and nutrition information for each of the fruits and vegetables that are listed.
To download the free application, go to extension.missouri.edu/p/MP909.
The application was created through a collaboration of MU faculty, staff and students from Human Environmental Sciences Extension, the Missouri School of Journalism and the College of Engineering.
