Ted the dog's Favourite 'Seasonal-Summer' Foods

Ted the dog's Five Favourite Seasonal Summer Foods

1) Asparagus

The short season makes asparagus all the more sought after - the homegrown variety is only available until the end of June. Asparagus is best eaten soon after picking, and can be enjoyed with a traditional accompaniment of hollandaise sauce or just a drizzle of olive oil.


2) Gooseberries

Gooseberries are a versatile and traditional British summer fruit, and can be golden, yellow or pink-red. When ripe, the dessert varieties can be eaten raw; the young fruit need sweetening, and make wonderful fools, pies and chutneys. Gooseberry purée goes well with mackerel and meats such as roast pork. The berries have high pectin content, so make good jam.


3) Mackerel

The colourful, shiny mackerel's rich, moist flesh make it great for barbecues. It's also inexpensive and high in healthy Omega-3 oils, which can help maintain a healthy heart.


4) Peas

What could be more summery than a bowl of fresh green peas? Enjoy their sweet, delicate flavour while you can – they have a short season at their best.


5) Welsh Lamb

Welsh lamb is known for its rich flavour, thanks to the lush Welsh grassland it feeds on.
