Eat the seasons – July

Another month, another list of delicious fresh ingredients to try out. If you want to find some interesting recipes to use July’s seasonal food then pop over to Pinterest.

Here in the UK, July heralds the start of the summer holidays. No more school for 6 weeks and lots of time to experiment with the flavours and ingredients available.

BBQ’s and picnics are a must for July, although many of these tend to be indoor’s due to the British weather. Entertaining is much easier with the nice weather allowing alfresco dining.

Here’s what’s fresh from the soil for you to use this month…
