What's In Season - April

What's In Season - April

Let's Get Wild!

We've hit peak wild garlic season. These delicate leaves are tremendously easy to use. No peeling, no chopping required. Throw them into anything that needs a garlicky hit, just do it at the end so they don't cook down to nothing.

However I like to make them the focal point of the meal. Think wild garlic risotto or wild garlic pesto. Make the most of the short season while you can!

It's easy enough to whizz up some pesto, but if you feel like more of a challenge why not tackle these wild garlic gnocchi - just invite us round for dinner if you do!  

Outdoor Rhubarb

The first of the outdoor rhubarb is coming through and we've already had several of you lovely lot coming in to offer us your locally grown rhubarb as part of our Allotment Swap Scheme.

Outdoor rhubarb is not as pink as the forced rhubarb we get through the winter, but it has a more intense flavour. Perfect for all your cakes and desserts!

A crumble is the easiest of puddings, but I've got a fondness for this Rhubarb Crumble Cake. It's works as a dessert with custard, or as an afternoon tea cake. It's a super versatile cake that works with almost any fruit you happen to have
