The Growing Season








ADD SOME ITALIAN SUNSHINE TO YOUR GARDEN WITH YELLOW COURGETTES

Courgettes produce stunning yellow flowers when young – stuffed with mozzarella and deep-fried in a light batter, they are a sought-after delicacy in Italy.

As for the courgettes themselves, pick when they are small, firm and unblemished: no need to peel, simply griddle, roast, steam or simmer in water.

NB: remember, they cook quickly – leave them too long and you'll end up with sad, bitter sludge.

Or try them raw in a salad: cut 8 baby or 4 small, trimmed courgettes into matchstick-sized pieces. Put into a large bowl and toss through 2tbsp extra virgin olive oil, the juice of half a lemon, 1 deseeded, finely chopped red chilli, 100g ricotta cheese, a handful of roughly torn basil and some seasoning.
