For obvious reasons, when you are eating out of your stored foods in the winter, many things seem to fall into the same basic strings. Lots of root veggies, some squash, some cabbages, leeks and a few forced plants like endive. Lots of rich, earthy flavors and heavy meals. While that is wonderful against the winter cold, it can get a bit tiresome. Canned goods can help some, but I was wondering if anyone happened to have some unusual ways of eating in the season without always being quite so heavy. So far, the only thing in my toolbox is forcing salsify and winter watermelons.

Hmmm.. I've heard you can force rhubarb indoors as early as christmas. Stewed rhubarb with icecream is always one of my summer favourites. You could freeze some from the main crop I guess.
 
My favorite is a chocolate cupcake with white frosting and tiny ad sprinkles.
