British Fruit and Vegetables in Season January

It’s January! I am not a believer in January detoxes and diets, I just continue eating lots of fresh vegetables and fruit and less cheese and chocolate. There is still a wealth of seasonal fruit and vegetables to enjoy so it doesn’t just have to be imported fruit and vegetables.

This month I am going to highlight lemons and leeks (not just for the alliteration!).

Lemons

I use an incredible amount of lemons in my cooking, I mainly use them in savoury dishes rather than sweet as I am not particularly a fan of lemon in sweet things.

Leeks

Leeks are related to garlic and onions but have a much sweeter and milder flavour. They are also a great source of vitamin C and iron.
