A RAINBOW FULL OF FLAVOUR
January has arrived and we're showcasing some new and exciting seasonal ingredients. Let us take you on a journey with vibrant colours, bold flavours and sensational Michelin-star recipes to elevate your home cooking and make the most of this incredible produce.
During the winter, European citrus are at their juiciest and sweetest, with blood oranges perfectly in season from January to March. With thick pitted skin, they often have a reddish blush and have distinctive dark flesh, are sweet in flavour and tend to have a delicious raspberry edge. The juice, flesh and zest can all be used to add a sweet, juicy tang to both sweet and savoury dishes.
YORKSHIRE FORCED RHUBARB
With a unique Northern heritage, Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb is now only grown by a handful of British producers including Tomlinson's Farm in Leeds. First grown in Yorkshire in the 1870s, this technique sees the rhubarb grown in sheds in total darkness at 13°C, 'forcing' the growth to create its delicate sweet flavour and bright colour. Picked by candlelight, this incredible ingredient is only available to enjoy for less than eight weeks from January to February.
Discover Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb in this week's Best in Season Selection.
