Our garden is brimming over with the smallest of tomatoes slowly turning from green to red a cluster at a time. Once we’ve picked enough I’ll blitz them up into sauces and soups and freeze for a hit of vitamins as we dive into the long, cold (my favourite) winter months.
We’ve been feasting on foraged blackberries since the end of July and they show no signs of stopping around here any time soon. I’m hoping to get back out this week to pick a few more to fill up the freezer (blackberries with porridge in bleak, mid-January is a blissful morning treat) and perhaps a batch (or 12) or my blackberry vodka which makes a very suitable Christmas gift. You can find my blackberry vodka recipe here – HINT – it is super easy.
Remember – eating seasonally should save you money and allow you to decrease your food miles along with supporting your local economy.
