Roast Jerusalem artichoke and barley risotto

added by River Cottage Canteen and Deli Axminster

A delicious warming seasonal recipe with artichoke crisps. Fresh and seasonal ingredients. At River Cottage we love supporting local food producers. Jerusalem artichokes: These look a little like root ginger, they are in season now and you should find them in all good supermarkets or farmers' markets. Jerusalem artichokes are sweet and almost garlicky and mushroomy and gorgeous. Although called artichokes they're actually tubers – like rough and ready potatoes. Barley is a fantastic grain for winter soups, stews and risottos. It is wonderfully versatile cereal grain with a rich nutlike flavour and a chewy consistency. Its appearance resembles wheat berries, although it is slightly lighter in colour. It is healthy high fibre high-protein whole grain boasting numerous health benefits. Barley is also used in booze: barley is used as an ingredient in beer and other alcoholic beverages.

Cauliflower Soup and Onion Pakoras

added by River Cottage Canteen and Deli Axminster

Cauliflower is a great vegetable and in season now. It is often forgotten about and certainly not used to its full potential, it can be sweet and creamy or roasted it takes on a nutty taste. Blitz it raw and use as rice or boiled it makes great soups and purees. It comes in several varieties and colours - purple, orange and the spiky romanesco.

Recipe

Tim's lemon trickle mash cake

added by River Cottage Canteen and Deli Axminster

The idea for this lovely, moist cake came from Elena Wong on our production team. It’s best made with leftover whole potatoes, which you’ve mashed or, even better, riced once cold. If you’re intending to make it with leftover mash, make sure it doesn’t contain too much butter, milk, cream – or any flavourings such as mustard.

Recipe

Eggy bready pudding with rhubarb compote

added by River Cottage Canteen and Deli Axminster

This is really a bread and butter pudding done with breadcrumbs instead of slices of bread, and it’s much easier to make. You can serve it, like rice pudding, with jam (very tart jams such as plum or raspberry are best) - or, best of all, with stewed/roasted rhubarb or plums.

  • .@Eco_Gite It spreads like mad so not in the veg patch, better in a big pot, but it does take nearly a year to produce good sized roots.
  • . @Lou_la_may Default topping is a sprinkling of soft brown sugar but a trickle of runny honey is also great. #askHugh
  • .@trishaocf Could be your choice of flour or that your sd starter needs a feed up, take a good tblsp, feed it for a few days & start again.
