Thismonth has been one of fruity delights – currant bushes laden withblackcurrants, the strawberry bed producing wonderful red fruits just in timefor Wimbledon, and now the raspberries and gooseberries are coming into theirown – I may be biased but I think Tideswell’s Community Kitchen garden growsthe sweetest desert gooseberries in the whole of Tideswell. The produce haskept our inventive chefs busy with black currant sorbet, an amazing rhubarbcake for the Wednesday lunch club and now spelt rhubarb muffins. Next month Ithink the veggies will be taking over again – purple mangetout, stripedtomatoes and yellow runner beans are on the menu. You can find all theseexciting recipes on our facebook page (at ‘Tideswell Kitchen Garden’)
