News & Recipes from Tideswell Community Kitchen Garden

The Kitchen Garden is always grateful to our ‘donors’ and ‘fosterers’. Most of our fruit trees and bushes have been donated by Tideswell residents to celebrate golden wedding anniversaries, in remembrance, or just from a wish to support us, and this month we have a willing team of ‘foster parents’ who are nurturing seedlings on their windowsills and kitchen tables.

This is an ‘in-between’time in the garden with no new crops ready for harvest and the winter cropsalmost over. However, there is still some Kale and Chard to be found, so if you fancy a taste of sunny Mediterranean days, try topping sautéed kale with Spanish chorizo and poached eggs and serve with hot buttered toast. You can use Feta or grilled Haloumi instead of the chorizo, but for an authentic Derbyshire taste, replace the chorizo with Gibbs famous black pudding, and don’t forget many of our Tideswell shops sell locally sourced eggs and cheeses and freshly baked bread.

We always welcome volunteers at Tideswell Community Kitchen Garden. We meet on the first Saturday afternoon of each month in the Kitchen Garden behind the Library, so come and say hello whether you’re a beginner or an expert, even if you only have a little time to spare. We’re a friendly bunch and you can share in our harvest.
