Eating with the Seasons: NOVEMBER

In the mist

Draped in hues of gold, the world looks strangely festive while November spells real autumn here, with its breath of cool air on my cheek. The first proper pangs of cold confuse us warm Mediterranean types, and all I want to do is curl my fingers around a bowl of hot warming, spicy soup, recover and hibernate. And when it comes to soups, there’s plenty of veg to choose from, as autumn vegetables really come into their own in November, just when we need them most. Eat the Seasons is a great guide on seasonal foods here in Britain, and a valuable resource that I often refer to. According to them, you can choose from: artichoke, beetroot, butternut squash, celeriac, celery, chicory, Jerusalem artichoke, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, parsnips, potatoes (main crop), pumpkin, swede, turnips, watercress and wild mushrooms.

As for the fruits, apples reign, closely followed by pears. Autumn is when they’re at their absolute best. They’re in good company, too, with chestnuts, cranberries, elderberries, quince, and walnuts in abundance.

To see which meat and fish is in season, check out the Eat the Seasons website!

Once again, I’d like to invite you to share your autumnal November recipes with us, and take part in the Eating with the Seasons: November event 

 

Join me!

 

EATING WITH THE SEASONS

 

  • Go and find out what’s in season where you live in NOVEMBER.
  • You can choose: fruit, vegetables, fish, meat.
  • Write a post/text if you are a non-blogger containing a recipe and/or information about your chosen seasonal item. You may post more than one recipe.
  • Post it and email it to me before 15 NOVEMBER, and I’ll post a round-up in a few days. The plan is to go from 15th to 15th in the month (eventually), so we have some time to enjoy the recipes for dishes that are in season.

Recipe by @carla_tomasi, via @rachelaliceroddy #twokitchensfamilyrecipesfromromeandsicily. 
A couple of changes to the method: I used a machine to knead the dough and sprinkled thw top of the #focaccia with some #Maldon sea salt. Delicious and soft!

Plus smoked pork sausage made by my mum and dad in Dalmatia.

I know this concept of leftover marmalade is alien to some, but we did have some left after I switched my allegiance to (seasonal) berry jams in June.
This cake is inspired by the amazing warm marmalade sponge I had at the @wreckfish_bistro in Liverpool, and based on the recipe by @nigellalawson. I wanted stronger flavours like in the Wreckfish sponge, so I added a touch of salt, 1 or 2 tbsp more marmalade than Nigella, and some more sugar. I also replaced some of the flour with ground almonds, and the glaze has a touch of lemon juice and a bit of sugar (because I ran out of marmalade and didn't have enough). I'll report back later on the results!
