My soul does a little happy dance as the last official day of summer arrives and we move into March and early autumn. Its my favourite time of year hands down. I prefer April as it gets even cooler and the light softens as the days get shorter. I start dreaming about more robust dishes but still like to take full advantage of the last bit of decent fruit in season, like plums, mangos, passion fruit and pomegranates. I’ve been blogging for so many years now and thought it a good idea to bring some of my favourite recipes back into the limelight each month. I tasted them so I know they are the best of the bunch. I’m constantly reminded how our lives work in cycles and for me eating with the seasons is the strongest affiliation I have to this.
Here are 10 of my favourite recipes to eat in March (if you live in the Southern hemisphere that is):
Plums are in full season and this is not only my favourite recipe using them, it’s also one of the easiest and best tarts you could ever bake
If you want another easy plum recipe try this plum & frangipane galette.
Passion fruit are in abundance so you want to be making:
One of my all-time faverout ice creams – passion fruit sorbet
Now for mangos – smack in the middle of season now, and this is good for dessert of breakfast / brunch pudding:
Pomegranates are starting to appear and I love these scones (so much). It seems like I like them a lot in general becasue I have a LOT of recipes on this blog.
and this pomegranate mojito
