SEASONAL EATING IN FEBRUARY: WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR THIS MONTH

Seasonal Food February

If you’ve been trying to eat more seasonal, local produce, then this is the blog series for you. Each month I try to demystify ‘seasonal eating’ with some simple info on what’s in season, and some ideas for how to cook it.

This month, it’s all about hearty stews, soups and comfort food. I’ve also been making the most of super-sustainable, fresh mussels which I picked up from the Rock & Scallop at Riverside Market.

SO WHAT’S IN SEASON IN THE UK IN FEBRUARY?

Look out for UK-grown Apples, Beetroot, Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Celeriac, Chicory, Jerusalem Artichokes, Kale, Leeks, Mushrooms, Onions, Parsnips, Pears, Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Red Cabbage, Salsify, Savoy Cabbage, Spring Greens, Spring Onions, Squash, Swedes, and White Cabbage.

On the fish front, go for sustainably sourced Mackerel, Scallops (hand dived), Oysters, Clams, Mussels, Pollock, Bream and Whiting.

Wild duck, hare, and venison is also in season now.
