Mise en Place Seasonal Monthly Produce
UK Cherry Tomatoes
602401 250g Punnet
Cherry tomatoes are a smaller variety of the common garden tomato that are generally sweeter than the larger fruits. Although usually red, yellow, green and black varieties also exist, and make a colourful addition to summery salads.
UK Romanesco Cauliflowers
Beautiful lime green Romanesco is somewhere between broccoli and
cauliflower in flavour and you can generally substitute it for either. It has a nuttier, sweeter edge that children tend to like, and is rich in fibre, vitamin C and antioxidants.
A member of the rose family, raspberries have a wonderfully intense, sweet taste, and many consider them to be the finest flavoured of all the berries. They are an essential ingredient in the classic English dessert, summer pudding, and their flavour combines well with that of other berries.
Cucumbers belonging to the same family as melons and squash, and are technically a fruit. Most often used raw, try adding to salads, a crudité plate or marinate Cucumbers in oil, vinegar and spices. They also pair particularly well with mint and dill.
Turkish Black Figs

Black figs have brownish-dark purple skin, a milder flavour than other figs, and are noticeably less sweet than the similar looking Black Mission figs. Figs work well in salads or in desserts where a sweetener can be used.
