• A reference list I've produced of British vegetables that are in season during March. March being the start of spring there are overlapping 'in season' veg from February and new spring additions.

  • Just like Marmite you either love them or hate them, they are of course the humble Brussels Sprouts. Famous for being part of the traditional Sunday roast or Christmas day meal Brussels Sprouts have been tormenting children for generations.

  • Cauliflower certainly hasn't been a favourite vegetable of mine, however since serving it for my children I'm learning to like it. In the past I've found it bland, probably because it has been boiled to death. 

  • The leek is a great vegetable, fairly cheap and and has a great taste to add to many dinner recipes. Fried, stewed, made into a soup; there are many ways to use the leek in cooking. I've particularly like the taste when it's in leek and potato soup.

  • Onions are used in many many different recipes, usually to add flavour right from the start. In my opinion they are one of the most important ingredients along with garlic. Strong tasting, they can be tamed by cooking softening their texture too.

  • Taking a brief look at Purple Sprouting Broccoli and in which months of the year it's in season in Great Britain.

  • Trying to find out when the Savoy Cabbage is in season here in Great Britain has taken some effort. It seems everyone has a different opinion, which appears to be the case with all the vegetables. It's amazing that there are so many conflicting answers!

  • The spring onion is a lovely vegetable, can be used in all sorts of applications. I particularly like it with salads or as part of a fried rice dish.
