Happy New Year!
January - Seasonal Food - In January you will find the finest quality of prime white fish to compliment hearty root vegetables. Its a great time to make the most of root vegetables like swede & parsnips in warming stews & casseroles followed by a steaming bowl of forced rhubarb crumble. You will also see an abundance of sweet winter fruits such as
oranges & pomegranates.
Gone almost as soon as they arrive, the Seville orange season runs from the end of December through to mid February . Luckily these knobbly-skinned marvels can be enjoyed year round as they freeze well whole, so when you see them take the chance to stock up on them.
If you are a marmalade fan now is the time
to stock up your shelves with
delicious home made
Seville Orange Marmalade.
Our first batch of Rhubarb has arrived, this has to be considered
a Yorkshire delicacy . Rhubarb is a good source of antioxidants ,
vitamins K & C, Iron, manganese & fibre. Its sour taste makes
it a perfect ingredient in jams, crumbles & pies.
British Mussels are at their most succulent and plentiful in the chilly winter months. Mussel recipes are quick, easy and delicious.
Steam them with fennel, garlic, parsley & white wine,
add to a Thai red curry or with saffron & spinach.
There are stacks of mussel recipes to try for a tasty winter seafood supper.
