Harvest box #5 – Strawberries have arrived!

Remember: When drinking herbal tea or eating edible flowers always check the risks associated with it. Vulnerable people, elderly, children or pregnant women should avoid using some of them. All produce are pesticide free and may contain some intruders. Always wash your veg before using them. 🐌

Although Calendula is edible flower (petals), it is also used to help with skin problem. Have a look here on how to make an infused oil and enjoy all its properties.

Feverfew is the tea of the week! Feverfew is used mostly to treat and prevent headaches.

It is probably not enough strawberries for a fruit salad but enough for this chocolate and strawberry mousse recipe!

Coriander can be added to most dished. Carrot and coriander is a good combination, and rather them making a soup with it, a tart sounds very interesting!

The rocket started to bolt but it gives us wonderful edible flowers. They look like butterfly wings! Leaves and flowers can be added to fresh salad but their flavour will be strong. Making a pesto is another option, and you can use the stem too!

Chard shrinks a lot so it is good to mix it with something else. This salmon and chard pie looks yummy!

The lettuce has been harvested this morning. If it looks a bit sad but the time you want to eat it, wash it and leave it in a bowl will clear water and a bit of sugar. Leaves for a few hours.

Riverford has lovely recipes ideas for cabbage leaves
