Its always nice to use seasonal ingredients that grow at the correct time of year and are perfectly ripe, colourful and full of their maximum flavour. If you’ve ever had a tomato from the supermarket in the middle of winter you’ll have noticed its stubborn insistence on tasting bland as it pokes its anaemic jet-lagged head from the shelf after a long flight from overseas. It will soon make you appreciate the juicy flavour of a scarlet ripe one in the summer months so we usually grow our own! These are looking good but just need a little more sunshine.
