    Seasonal Foods

    Splashed out today on some new crop Jersey Royals. I did phone the bank manager first to ensure he'd cover the purchase.

    I LOVE 'Jerseys'. I can eat them, with non salted Lurpak, just on their own, as a delicacy.

    Anyone else have any seasonal favourites?

    Nothing like the home grown produce.
    Most things you can buy all year. But you cant beat English Strawberries. The ones grown abroad do not taste the same.
    But... Tomatoes bought from the market in Spain... Delicious. Supermarket ones over here..no taste.
    Canary Islands Bananas...small but yummy. Supermarket ones over here..straight and bland.

    Must get planting some veg. Shame I cant grow bananas though.
    Must admit I do love sweetcorn dripping with unsalted Lurpak. (I do try and cut down on salt) See! I can be good

    British Damsons straight from the tree

    We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.

    Ooooooh! Jersey Royals & best butter....yummy & a half!

    I love home grown produce- you just can't beat it for taste! A short walk from our bungalow will find several small stalls selling free range eggs, home made jams & chutneys and a range of farm grown seasonal veggies- all left out in the open with honesty coin boxes. Why you can even buy horse manure for your own veggie plot! He he Oh! And there's always somebody selling freshly caught mackerel in season from the nearest layby. Mmmmm mmmmm yum yums!

    We picked Victoria Plums at the fruit farm and they were fantastic.
    The ones in the shops don't compare. Can't wait until we can go again this year.

    Asparagus, strawberries, raspberries, plums, 'proper' apples. I grew up in Kent when there were lots of pick your own choices - indeed my summer jobs for a few years were fruit picking ones. The worst to pick - gooseberries and peas. The peas had an incredible expanding sack to put them in, and you guessed it you were paid by the sack. I think I earnt 3 for a whole day's back-breaking work and got covered in green fly as an additional bonus.
