What's in season in November?

Did you know I almost got married on bonfire night? We ended up moving the date, but I still love November.

The smell of woodsmoke, the excuse to layer up in woolly jumpers and cute hats, pretty fireworks and (of course) toffee apples feels like the consolation prize for the clocks having gone back, and dark, cold mornings and evenings being well and truly upon us.

I always think of November as an indoorsy month: those dark, cold days were made for thick blankets and vanilla scented candles, huge mugs of hot coffee and piles of books. Its a sort of hibernation, quietly gathering your strength ready for a December filled with sparkle and parties and far too much food.


This post is part of my new series on eating seasonally – every month I let you know what ingredients are in season and point you to some recipes using those ingredients.
