This is the of the fruit and vegetable guides – all the seasons now covered. If you’ve missed some in the past and would like to download all of them, you can find them all in the resources section here.
Summer means an abundance of fruit, particularly tropical fruit. And for me, Mangoes especially play a big role on the menu.
Mango chutney, mango smoothie, mango curry and of course, mango savoured on its own – the seed sucked over the sink, dripping juice.
Summer is also the time of the tomato and the over abundance of zucchini. Next week I’ll share a recipe that’s tasty, easy, healthy and uses both these ingredients with a bit of a twist.
As always, with the seasonal guide, there will be some regional variation as to what’s in season when.
