Read on for what’s great this month...............

As autumn departs and winter draws in it's time to start looking to heartier meals to warm our cockles and provide comfort on those chilly november nights. With Halloween almost over, why not take advantage of the glut of pumpkins available and grab yourself a bargain. These mammoth vegetables are great in soups or risotto, or simply roasted and served alongside your sunday roast. Or how about some butternut squash, a not so distance relative of the pumpkin. These are also great roasted and make some of the best soup going, try with a dash of chilli too give you that extra bit of warmth. Also great now are swedes and turnips. These much underated beauties are perfect boiled and mashed with a knob of butter and some seasoning. 

And don't worry, there's plenty to keep us excited in the fruit department with apples and pears a plenty. Now is definitely the time to get those crumbles in the oven, but if crumbles aren't your thing (hard to imagine I know) why not grab some figs or quinces and make an early start on your christmas gifts, homemade jams, the perfect present!

And with lots of game still available, there is no need for you meat lovers to despair, why not pick yourself up a lovely grouse, perfect paired with some quince puree, or perhaps a rabbit and treat yourself to rabbit saddle wrapped in pancetta. Storms, do your worst! With ingredients like these, we don't need to go out.

Why not tell us which ingredients are keeping you warm as winter sets in, we'll post them up next month.
