June is a really great time for British ingredients. Many of the in season ingredients from May still remain in their prime but there are a few new gems to focus on! Here are my top picks…
Strawberries – When I think of British summers I think of big bowls of fresh strawberries and cream. Strawberries are June’s stand out sensation! While homegrown strawberries will have been available for a month or two now, they aren’t truly at their sweetest until June. Take advantage of this, make Jam, use them in patisserie or simply eat them on their own.
Raspberries – another favourite fruit of mine for June. Raspberries make a perfect addition to patisserie and desserts.
French beans – May saw peas and broad beans come into season and joining them this month are French beans. Bring a welcome crunch to early summer dishes with this family favourite. While these are in season right up until august the younger, early crops are often much sweeter and tenderer making them a great addition to salads.
