Simple and in Season September Blogging Event

I’m so pleased to welcome you all to another round of Simple and in Season. We are now into September and on the brink of Autumn here in the UK, though elsewhere some of you may still have sunshine…

The link-up is closed for now and a round-up will follow shortly. I will be opening a new link soon for links to October/November seasonal recipes.
 
 
In the UK we are moving into autumn now. There will be plenty of wild mushrooms around (my mum and I foraged some wild mushrooms in a forest in Wales!) Look out for sweetcorn, kale and samphire. Fruit-wise, we are into peak Victoria Plum season, you may find some autumnal raspberries, blackberries, apples and pears. We are on a drive to eat more fish and so will be trying sea trout this month.
 
Anyhow, please add your link to the form below –


 

 
 A very quick re-cap on the guidelines -
 
•All you have to do is come up with a dish using any seasonal produce you like (savoury or sweet) post it on your blog, mention Simple and in Season/Fabulicious Food! and add a link to your post in the box below (via Simply Linked).

•This is the fifth  round and it will runs up until 15th October 2011. I will pick a winner shortly after (excluding myself obviously) and will include a round-up post including everyone who has entered.

•You can take inspiration from anywhere – adapt a recipe from your favourite cookbook, try something from a magazine, make up your own creation or share a family favourite. The usual rules apply when using someone else’s recipe, please either get permission from the author to post it or adapt it in some way stating how/why you’ve changed it

•Include any seasonal produce you fancy including fruit, veg, herbs, meat or fish

•Link as many recipes as you like. You can link posts entered into other blog events or carnivals as long as it involves a seasonal food item (and fits in with their rules)

•The linky-up is open to anyone, anywhere. I’m happy to post prizes abroad and although it will be nice to feature as much British produce as possible, it will be interesting to see what’s in season elsewhere.

•If you have questions or problems, email me or leave me a comment in the comment box at the bottom of the post.

Happy cooking and eating!

Oops, nearly forgot, the winner will receive a copy of Stewed! by the lovely Alan Rosenthal to get you in the mood for proper autumnal cooking.
 
Stewed!

    Enjoying having a look at what everyone else is doing with their autumnal cooking. I’ve submitted three items – I hope that’s OK and that I’ve done it all correctly.

    >Hi Urvashi, half way up the page you'll see all the pink links. You add the link to the form there. If you are struggling just let me know which post you want to link up and I will link it for you. Thanks for taking part!

    >Hi I've not done this before and I can't figure out how to do the Simply linked thingie? Am rubbish at technology!

  5. Fabulicious Food says

    >Thank you so much Shaheen. Just had a peek – your tart is stunning…a very strong contender this month!

  6. Shaheen says

    >I really appreciate this way of showcasing seasonal fruit and veg and appreciate you for hosting. So here is my entry for this month, as i thoroughly enjoyed participating last month.

    >Karen I can't wait to see what's in your beautiful French garden for inspiration this month.

    Sally, thanks for the commment. My kids actually love mushrooms but I was afraid that the little one would get to keen to start picking and eating random things! I don't remember that my mum ever took me with her, I just remember her, my grandmother and a friend always coming back with bags and bags of them. My favourite is 'pierogi' with cabbage and mushrooms :-) Ooh, that might have to be my entry for this month!

    >My Polish aunt and uncle used to venture off into the Forest of Dean at this time of year and come back laden with all sorts of wild stuff. They would carefully lay out their specimens and then fry them with onions. As children we were expected to taste them and to enjoy them, which we did. I find it utterly incomprehensible that many children (my teens included) find cultivated mushrooms too much of a challenge! I would love to join a mushroom hunt but alas will have to make the most of being in one of the sunnier places you mention!

  9. Karen S Booth says

    >Wonderful ideas for September and I loved your mushroom tale too! I am looking forward Autumn and all the bountiful produce……thanks for hosting this Ren, count me in!

    >Thank you too, Marie, you're so welcome. I really enjoyed all the August offerings. September is exciting as we leave the summer behind.

  11. Fabulicious Food says

    >Hi Lauren, I know what you mean! I'm sure you will be able to find some wild mushrooms in the shops. Really look forward to whatever seasonal treats you'd like to share!

  12. Marie says

    >Thanks for doing this wonderful round up of Autumn/September dishes. I love seasonal cooking. Can't wait to see what everyone else posts! September is a most delicious month! xx

  13. Lauren says

    >Mushroom hunting sounds exciting, but I don't know anyone with experience, so I'm a little afraid of poisoning myself! :-/ This is my first time to participate in Simple and In Season (my recipe is the Beetroot and Apple Salad), so I'm really excited!
