It’s July, which is a feast of a month. Here’s what’s in season right now:
Aubergine, broccoli, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, courgette, cucumber, leek, lettuce, onions, peas, potato, radish, shallot, sweetcorn, tomatoes.
Loads of fruit available too, with apples, blackberries, blackcurrants, cherries, pears and plums.
Foragers will be on the look-out for seaweeds such as sea lettuce, laver, beanweed, kelps and wracks. Many cultures eat seaweed regularly, but despite being an island with plenty of coastline to harvest it, it’s never established itself on the British dinner table. However, I’m told seaweeds are at their most nutritious at this time of the year, so there’s no better time to try it. Check out here, or .
Landlubbing foragers will be after the blackberries and wild cherries, and of course wild mushrooms.
