4 Québec products to add to your recipes

Supporting local producers is a delicious way of showing your solidarity.

 

This period of quarantine is an opportunity to spend more time in the kitchen and (re)discover local products. During these difficult times, it’s now more important than ever to support our local producers, who are working hard to provide you with fresh, high-quality products. Here are 4 Québec products you could add to your next online order and in your recipes.

 

 

1. Spring asparagus

Harvested during the months of April and May, asparagus is packed with water and vitamins and is a great way to add a hint of freshness on your plate. Asparagus can be grilled or steamed and goes well in salads and pasta. It also makes a tasty side for fish fillets.

Tip: add a drizzle of olive oil and salt before your kids have a bite. They’ll love it.

2. Black garlic, the new kid in town

Originally from Japan, black garlic has only recently been harvested in Québec and is an absolute delight for taste buds. Its surprising appearance is the result of a long, secretive aging process perfected by experts. With its smooth texture and sweet taste, it can be likened to black licorice or candied prunes. Support local producers by enjoying it as a spread, in a sauce or even dessert!

How can you easily find local products?

In store, look for the "Aliments du Québec" logo which guarantees the product was produced locally. If you are shopping online, use our filters " Quebec products" and "Prepared in Quebec" in order to support local producers!

 

3. Cheese curds, a source of local pride

Cheese curds* are undoubtedly a staple of Québec. Their salty taste and unique texture make them extremely popular. Often enjoyed as a snack or in a delicious poutine, you can also add them in a variety of dishes such as hot dogs, salads and even soups. They will add a touch of comfort to any meal.

Tip: don’t forget to keep them in the fridge once you open the bag. They can last about one week. If your cheese curds no longer make that distinct squeaking sound when you bite into them, don’t toss them away! Simply put them in an airtight bag, immerse them in hot water and let them cool.

4. A Quick Guide to Endives

Québec endives* are available year-round and are renowned for their bittersweet undertones. They are also very easy to prepare. To get the most out of their crunchy texture, turn fresh endives into a salad or an appetizer made with a local cheese. You can then steam any leftovers or add them to your gratin recipes. They will melt in your mouth! If you do steam your leftovers, you can freeze them to enjoy at a later date.
