Widespread Drought in US Affects Food Supply

The summer drought has altered the flavors in specific fruits and vegetables and provoked discussion about vegan diets.

Although this summer’s drought has devastated many crops, it has also deepened the flavors in select produce. Peppers such as jalapeños, onions, and garlic have become more potent due to the conditions. In dry heat, water concentration is lowered in fruit and vegetables allowing produce to sweeten up or richen in flavor. Regardless, rain is needed to keep crops alive and at an affordable price. For consumers concerned about inflated grocery bills due to the drought, writer Heather Moore suggests that veganism is the cheapest and most sustainable diet.
