Seasonal eating in September

We’re almost a week into September and I haven’t posted this month’s seasonal update. Lots to enjoy at this time of year though, particularly fruit: apples, plums, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and greengages (any other fruits named after a colour?) We still have hundreds of tomatoes in the garden.

Lots of saladstuffs too, lettuce, cucumber, celery, radish, spring onions. Beans and peas are about, and so are beetroots, cabbage, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers and potatoes. Look out for pumpkin any time soon as well.

Foragers will be harvesting berries of the black, bil, elder, rowan, sloe and hawthorn variety. If you know what you’re looking for you can also find hops, walnuts and hazelnuts, and marsh samphire. There should be puffballs, chanterelles and parasol mushrooms around too, for those with a good field guide to fungi.
