This week’s standard box contains local celeriac and leeks with Spanish broccoli and tomatoes. No potatoes boxes have Spanish red peppers, large ones Brussels from Herefordshire. Fruit boxes have Medjool dates, Red Pippin apples and clementines, navel oranges and kiwis from Italy. This week’s recipe is based on one in Skye Gyngell’s ‘My Favourite Ingredients’; Simple and different with a real seasonal flavour. It’s worth trying with oranges too and without the pomegranate if you don’t have one to hand.
