Well the tenth month of the year is here, O is for October, and I wish everyone a happy month. Out and about, following social distancing rules and of course wearing a facemask as Covid 19 regulations say, the shops seem full of Autumnal gifts, some Halloween goodies and lots of ideas for Christmas!

But if you are like me I also think of October foods and what is in season. Things like leafy kale and leeks, so nice to add to healthy green soups and stews. Of course bright butternut squash adds colour to easy traybakes. Don’t forget that once you’ve carved your Halloween pumpkin try cooking with it too – roast in generous wedges or bake into sweet pumpkin pie. British apples and pears are also in season throughout October, more to read with lots of recipe ideas here

Wishing all readers a Happy October

All the best Jan
