Spring produce is at its peak!
This month I’m loving the spring asparagus, last of the mulberries and the joy of perfectly ripe, just-picked strawberries from my garden. I’ve been making wild soda from berries and herbs in my garden. I was a little skeptical that wild yeast in the air could create a bottle of fizz, but it really does!

What to cook with asparagus?
Beyond blanching, steaming or barbecuing, there’s a lot more you can do with asparagus. Try:
- A tray bake like baked fish with asparagus
- Add to a salad such as spring salad with tempeh and asparagus
- Simply tossed in olive oil and roasted in a hot oven for 10 – 15 minutes.
