South Leigh Seasonal Recipes
Lots of us grow herbs - either on the window sill or in the garden - and the supermarkets now sell big bags of many different fresh herbs. If you grow your own, keep picking them as this will encourage fresh young growth rather than letting the plants go quickly to seed. Experiment with different herbs - use mint in a stir-fry (not just with lamb or Pimms!) and add parsley, lovage, chervil or coriander to green salads. And if the plants have made flowers or seeds, sprinkle a few of them over salads too. Chive, fennel, borage, nasturtium and pansy flowers are all tasty and colourful. Enjoy the sunshine! E.L.
