We still have a rather summery box this week but the greater regularity of local Kentish apples appearing in our boxes mean that autumn is just around the corner. Perfect for the lunch box with the start of the new school year.
Or why not make a tarte tatin this weekend?
Simply use off-the-shelf puff pastry in Marcus Wareing’s recipe or ready made shortcrust pastry. Or read Guardian’s analysis of which pastry to use (and other technical debates) in Guardian’s “How to cook perfect tarte tatin” article. Add calvados as suggested by Jamie Oliver (or brandy maybe?) or a squeeze of lemon to the apples. Delightful!
For sorrel and celery eating ideas check out our previous blog post. If you are new to bulls blood, it’s an heirloom beet grown for tender, sweet, deep red-burgundy / magenta foliage. It’s a little like chard so cook them similarly (or as you will for spinach). We are also seeing a return of kale, of the most vibrant pink and green variety, enjoy!
