July is here and with the suns nurturing rays were getting new seasonal produce. You can still buy last months produce as a lot of summer produce runs throughout the season but July is all about berries and fruit, enjoy them au naturel and savour the flavour.

- These are just coming into season. Enjoy them with some coconut ice cream or add to your morning porridge for a yummy, sweet touch.

- As these grow in abundance we make sure to freeze some for coming months. Then we enjoy some fresh with mint and ice cream, muddled with a bit of champagne for a cool summer drink or in fruit salads and smoothies.

- Use red currents to make a lovely summer drink. Lightly boil 6 L of berries (red currents, raspberries, strawberries) with 2 L of water. When boiled strain through a cloth until all the juices are out, press with a spoon to extract the last drops of juice. Add maple syrup to taste then store in an air-tight glass bottle.

- These are just lovely, their light colour, waxy texture and subtle flavour. To prepare simmer in salt water for a few minutes, strain the water, toss with extra virgin olive oil and crack some fresh black pepper then finish off by sprinkling with large flakes of pecorino.
