I was delighted when Ren asked me to host Simple and in Season this month. We are fortunate to have two allotments and eating seasonal, homegrown produce is a real treat for us. I regularly enter Simple and in Season and love the round up posts as there are so many delicious recipes and ideas.
Vegetables in season in April: Asparagus, Cauliflower, Cucumber, Jersey Royal New Potatoes, Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Radishes, Savoy Cabbage, Spinach, Spring Greens, Spring Onions, Watercress and Wild Garlic.
Fruit in season in April: Rhubarb, Apples and Pears.
500g rhubarb washed, trimmed and cut in to 2cm lengths
60g caster or light soft brown sugar
Preheat your oven to 200C/180C Fan.
Put the rhubarb into an ovenproof dish and sprinkle over the sugar. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 - 30 minutes until the rhubarb has softened. Check the sweetness level and add a drizzle of honey should you wish.
All you have to do is come up with a dish using any seasonal produce you like (savoury or sweet) post it on your blog, add a link to this post mentioning Simple and in Season and linking to www.renbehan.com, this post and then add your post to the linky below.
