Aah, April! We’re finally out of winter and have a full month of spring ahead of us – yippee! British seasonal fruit and vegetables are still a bit thin on the ground this month, but there are still a few old favourite fruit and vegetables in season in April to keep us going through the month. And there’s the addition of some spring delights – radishes, cucumbers, spring onions and even some herbs this month to cheer up our plates! And, finally this forager’s favourite – wild nettles! I’m planning on getting busy with the nettles this month – hopefully I’ll be able to share my nettle makes with you this month.
If you’ve not tried nettle before, it’s similar in taste to spinach, and once you boil it there’s no danger of stinging – I promise!! Give it a go this month – maybe start with this wild nettle pesto recipe? And let me know how you get on!
