What's in season; Winter

Feb. 15, 2023

Winter vegetables are delicious!

The hungry gap seems to have had a head start this year. Farmers are running out of stored winter vegetables and the spring veg hasn't begun yet. You'll still find plenty of brightly coloured winter vegetables on the markets including the aptly named January King cabbage, celeriac, parsnips, celery, purple sprouting broccoli, winter leaves, beetroot, carrots, onions, red cabbage, plus forced rhubarb, and wild garlic will be making an appearance soon.

You'll find stored apples, plus Jerusalem artichokes, leeks,  main crop potatoes, swede,  turnips and kohlrabi.

Newhouse Game

Feathered game season has ended but you'll still find venison, rabbit, and pigeon.

Hogget, goat meat and mutton for warming winter roasts and stews. Shellfish from crabs and lobsters to mussels, oysters and scallops and clams. Fish to look out for include mackerel, plaice, and turbot.
