What's in season in December?

What’s in season in December?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Well another break in posting, again due to illness in the family.  This time not me but my Mum.  So this one’s for you Mum – get better soon!

Judging by the food that’s in season in December, I think it’s fairly obvious that Christmas is on the way!

Fruit & Veg in season in December

Brussels Sprouts

White Cabbage

Grapefruit

Whether you love them or hate them, brussels are part of Christmas! Honestly, I think people just assume they don’t like them because they’ve only had them boiled into submission.  Why not try them a different way – get some little baby brussels and chop them in half, then fry them with some smoked bacon lardons and some chopped chestnut.  Gorgeous – plus any leftovers will make a beautiful bubble & squeak!

Meat & Fish in season in December

Turkey

If only there were some excuse to eat turkey this month….

December Foraging

Hazelnuts

Walnuts

Nuts are always very reminiscent of Christmas too.  Every year, I always find some at the bottom of my stocking, along with a satsuma or two.  Back at my parents home, there’s always a big bowl of nuts with a couple of old worn, nutcrackers, sitting by the fire and waiting for people to dip in and enjoy them.  The crackling of the fire and the cracking of nuts is a real sign of Christmas just around the corner.
