September flavours.

Eating seasonal food means eating fresh and that means the food you’re eating has higher nutritional content. Our bodies have different nutritional needs at particular times of the year and seasonal foods offer the minerals and trace elements that we are likely to require. It is often cheaper too and helps support local British farmers who work hard to look after the countryside. We’re sure you’ll agree that these are all good reasons among many more.

But we digress, produce that has ripened naturally tastes better exactly as nature intended. That’s a sure winner. It's all about flavours, and that’s something we know a thing or two about.

It's September and autumn is here so there is plenty of fresh produce to choose from. New season British apples and pears are now available to eat later this month including delicous and sweet varieties such as Zari. There is also some tasty produce on our list which only grows overseas, but it is also in season and in supermarkets this month.
