It’s a big softback which has over 200 recipes for all the produce commonly grown on allotments, from apples to turnips, which certainly includes everything that I grow or I’m likely to!
There are a range of recipes for each fruit or vegetable, from soups and snacks to more substantial main meals. I’ve enjoyed looking through it and have found a fair few recipes that I both fancy and reckon that I can do, such as Cheese potato puffs and Turkish carrot salad!
Rhubarb will be the first thing to be harvested starting in April, and which will hopefully be from my plant. If not then I’m sure that plot neighbour Brian will be telling me to help myself to a couple of sticks from one of his well established clumps, one of which is already showing signs of growth!As well as just stewing some I think that I’ll try Rhubarb and banana fool which the book says has an unusual combination of flavours in a creamy pudding, and it also looks to be an easy recipe to start off with!
Happy cooking, and eating!
