Cook In Season


Thinking of your Easter dinner? It is good to eat in season. It’s kind to the environment and your wallet because the fruit and veg will be grown in the UK therefore there is less transportation needed. This means that there is less pollution and it reduces the cost of fruit and vegetables and so it reduces the price as well. So, why not give it a shot? You will find all the ingredients in the main supermarkets still so you don’t have to worry about inconvenience. Here is a list of all the fruit and veg that are in season in April.

  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Cucumber
  • Kale
  • Lettuce
  • Potatoes
  • Purple sprouting broccoli
  • Radishes
  • Rocket
  • Samphire
  • Spring Onions
  • Watercress
  • Rhubarb

Recipes


To make it even easier to eat in season, we found some recipes that use up a lot of the vegetables in the list above. For a starter, you could have Asparagus, crispy potatoes and radishes with herb hollandaise Which uses 3 vegetables from the list. Now to move on to the main course.


As it is the month of Easter it only makes sense to use that for the main course. Not only does it work well for the holiday season but it could potentially use up a lot of in season vegetables. So, when you make your roast lamb dinner make sure you have it with broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and roast potatoes. This then uses 4 seasonal vegetables. Time for the best part, the dessert.


Rhubarb and custard go very well together, therefore it would be wrong for us not to put them together in the dessert. For this we found a delicious Rhubarb and custard pie with butter crumble that would taste great at the end of any meal.
