To eat seaonal food here at the moment means we need to eat lots of lemons, a few passionfruit, rhubarb and now we are getting a few strawberries each day. We reckon our lemons taste better than the supermarket oranges anyway. I guess that list of ftuit would meet our fruit requirments in any case. The thing with the fruit is that you really look forward to each new crop starting and end up thinking what on earth can I do with yet another orange etc. If the berries continue to do well and we stay on top of the fruit fly and coddling moth we will have almost a years supply of fruit. Our mulberries are a few weeks off and then the apricots will start.
The thing that really got me thinking about seaonal food though was these cauliflowers. the brassicas have down pretty well this year and i have been remembering to pick them small and use them so as not to have a glut. However with Peter in hopsital they got away from me and I found three that urgently needed to be picked.
Other things that will be on the menu are pureed cauliflower, instead of mashed potato and cauliflower soup which I suspect would freeze well, cauliflower curry is nice as well. Now I just need more silverbeet ideas.
