How is it December already?! Seriously, I don’t know where the time goes. I’ve just been reading through the round up for November’s Simple and in Season, hosted beautifully by Katie over at Feeding Boys and a Firefighter. Thank you Katie. 34 stunning seasonal recipes – honestly, it’s like a cook book! Soups, starters, sharing plates, winter salads, cakes, crumbles, home made liqueurs…I can’t wait for December’s entries now. The link up is below. I’ll be rounding up as early in January as I can.
What’s in Season during December?
Well, it largely depends on where you are in the world. But here in the UK I’m seeing plenty of kale (I had a stunning Winter Wonderland variety in my bog box), beetroot, Brussels sprouts (get creative!) cauliflower, leeks, parsnips, wild mushrooms. On the fruit front, apples, clementines and cranberries. Don’t forget that nuts are seasonal, too – almonds, walnuts and chestnuts. There’s duck, goose, turkey and venison, too. Basically, your whole Christmas dinner!
And yes, there will be a prize. I’ll send one lucky entrant a cook book of their choice in the new year.
Don’t forget to tweet me @RenBehan with the hashtag #SimpleandinSeason. And since becoming a featured pinner, there are now over 65,000 followers of my boards, including the Simple and in Season board, so I’ll be pinning all your entries, too.
