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.
