Doing a few more jobs around the garden this month has turned out to be good news for the kitchen. Clearing up the veg patch I found some forgotten leeks and a small swede, and these have made their way indoors. We’ve had a really tasty, comforting leek and potato bake with some tangy cheddar on the top (recipe coming soon), and I mixed the swede with some spuds while making bangers and mash.
As March is a good month for repotting and manicuring perennial herbs there have been lots of prunings to use up as well, mostly rosemary, sage and a little thyme. They’ve been perfect for flavouring stews, roasts and breads….
