Seasonal Food in UK – January

Print Friendly

I know it is a little late to cover British seasonal foods for January but next month I will try and be a bit more on time.
By choosing seasonal food you are eating food at  its best in terms of flavour and nutrition value.
January is the month for game soups, green vegetables to accompany casseroles and stews which work so well in a thermal cooker.
This is the last month for a while that we will find fresh mackerel and the pilchard will not be seen again until September.
