This month I will be mostly eating…

This is a new “feature” on this blog.  I will try at least monthly, to provide you with a list of “in-season” foods that are available to buy.  In an era when we are increasingly disconnected with our food supplies we can easily become confused about what we should be eating when (and when different foods taste the best). 

Eating seasonally can:

  • help support local economies
  • reduce your indirect CO2 footprint
  • be cheaper

It also tackles that incredibly silly thing of eating things from the other side of the world.  I am not saying it is the most important issue out there, but “every little helps”!

So this month I will be mostly be eating…

Beetroot, Brussel Sprouts, Cauliflower, Carrots, Celeriac, Kale, Leeks, Mushrooms, Onions, Parsnips, Potatoes, Radish, Rocket, Swede and Turnips.

For my Fruit salads:

Apples, Clementine’s and pears

To make things taste lovely:

Almonds, Brazil nuts, Chives, Coriander, and Parsley

On that rare occasion when you want a good chunk of meat:

Beef, chicken, duck, goose, pork and rabbit. 

Bon appétit!
