Seasonal eating in October

I can’t quite believe it’s October already, but that makes it apple season. Shame on you if you’re not buying local English apples at this time of year.

Stock up on  aubergines, cauliflower and courgettes while you can, before they’re over for this year and replaced with new season artichokes, brussel sprouts, and celeriac. Red and white cabbages replace the green summer varieties. Marrow, carrots, onions and spinach are still in season, and so is squash, beetroot, and of course pumpkin. Marrow, there’s something I haven’t cooked very often…

It’s also mussel season, if you want to go foraging along the seashore. Landlubbers might want to go looking for nuts, hazel, chestnut and walnut. Elderberries and juniper are also about, if you know what to do with them.

  1. obviously like your web site but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I’ll definitely come back again.
