Seasonal Recipes

About Us

Local resident, journalist and foodie Helen Peacocke said: "I thought it would be good to do a few recipes that follow the seasons and could be linked with the vegetables and fruits that the Eynsham allotment holders are harvesting".

  • fresh food in seasonApril offers the first shoots of mint, asparagus and nettles, a free alternative to spinach - and the hens begin laying again.
  • May begins with roasted asparagus - simplest of all - and only one of many recipes for this classy vegetable. A few weeks on, rhubarb comes into its own - in fool with a new twist, in crumble and in wine - followed by an oriental approach to radishes, a rare sighting of Swiss Chard and 3 mouth-watering ideas for strawberries.
  • June begins with more Jubilee ideas than you can imagine, then moves on to broad beans and beetroot.

And so it continues. Check the seasonal selection one at a time, or browse the bumper PDF. If you’re looking for plant-based recipe ideas you’ll find around 50 here :-)
