What's in season in November?
Remember, remember, eat well in November... salad days may be over, but there are plenty of tasty and warming soups, roasted root vegetables, stews and tagines to savour this month.
Fruit and veg: apples, artichokes, beetroot, butternut squash, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, celeriac, chestnuts, clementines, cranberries, dates, kale, leeks, parsnips, pears, potatoes, pumpkin, quince, red cabbage, spinach, swede, turnip.
How about a starter of Portuguese-style clams for a taste of sunnier climes? Or a seasonal and local treat of Roasted Pumpkin Soup?
Seasonal mains for November include veggie options Parsnip risotto, Stir-fry Cabbage and Autumn Vegetable Tagine and my pescatarian favourites Easy Fish Stew and Paella. For a heartier treat, try Roast Guinea Fowl or Rabbit with Cider.
My favourite comfort dessert has to be this Fruit Sponge Pudding which you can make with seasonal apple and berries;. Do help us add to the choice by sending us your own favourites!
