Easy Spring Cooking
After the dark, cold days of winter start to fade away, food-lovers can rejoice as a whole raft of new vegetables come into season giving us all a break from the endless roots and brassicas we’ve become accustomed to in the winter months. Our food starts to lighten up, bringing with it colour and optimism, as longer, brighter days give us all renewed energy. Soon we’ll see asparagus, sprouting broccoli, spring garlic, salads of all shapes and sizes. Sweet peas and peppery radishes will pop with fresh flavour. Early fruits will appear too: forced rhubarb, early strawberries, gooseberries. Though not native to the UK, we’ll start to see mangoes, lemons, limes and pineapples come into season in their countries of origin.
