November – the time of the year when we begin to get a little indulgent with our meal choices. Succulent meats, flavoursome fruits and veggies and oven-baked fish are just a few of things you’ll be popping onto your menus, as well as those all-important rich desserts. But what ingredients really taste best at this time of the year? That’s exactly what we’ll be finding out in today’s blog…
When it comes to your fruits and veggies you’ll be wanting to pick ones that are full of flavour and relatively dense. Pumpkin is a November favourite and extremely versatile, along with other root vegetables like celeriac, sweet potato and butternut squash. Other fabulous veggies include turnips, artichoke and kale, while chestnuts, apples, clementines and cranberries are some of the season’s best fruits.
Protein sources are equally delicious in November, with venison, lamb, pork and guinea fowl being some of the most popular. While venison is a great option for the more health conscious foodie, lamb provides that rich, indulgent flavour and texture – it’s certainly worth the calories!
If you prefer a fish dish, why not opt for mussels or crab? Oven-baked mussels, cooked on the half shelf and drizzled with olive oil and herbs makes the perfect main.
