What’s delicious in May

May breezes into the kitchen bringing with it the first tantalising flavours of early summer with luscious blackberries, sweet strawberries and fresh mint. You can also still enjoy the delights of Jersey Royals and British asparagus – they're both delicious simply served with salted butter or a drizzle of olive oil.

The spears are here

The asparagus season is fleeting so savour its delicate sweetness while you can. Slice and serve raw in salads, or roast its slender spears before serving with salted butter or olive oil

Fresh and fragrant

Mint works equally well in savoury and sweet dishes. Enjoy steeped in hot water as a refreshing herbal tea, chop into grain-based salads or use it to make homemade mint sauce to serve with lamb. Add a sprig to your drink for a fragrant touch, particularly delicious in a classic mojito or a pitcher of Pimm’s

Here come the Royals

Jersey Royals enjoy a short but blissful season. With a creamy texture and nutty flavour, they’re fabulous smashed and roasted or added to salads and curries
