Fruits and vegetables aren't the only foods that have seasons. Different fish are available at different times of the year depending on water temperature and even non-factory farm hens have a rhythm to their egg laying.
Another food that falls into this category is Icelandic lamb, which is available now for the next two months or so at Whole Foods markets. Whole Foods has an exclusive agreement with Iceland and is the only purveyor of Icelandic-raised lamb.
The quality is superb, but some of the cuts can be a little pricey. However, if you only splurge on food once in blue moon, this is a good occasion to do so. My local Whole Foods just received two whole animals on Monday and is doing all of the butchering and fabricating on site.
Here's a Whole Foods-sponsored video telling the story of Icelandic lamb. (If you are receiving The Delicious Truth via email, click here to watch the video.)
