Other in­gre­di­ents we can’t wait to get our hands on this month:

Cornwall Life - - FOOD & DRINK -

Fast fish

We of­ten see a run on fish such as sar­dines, mack­erel, pilchards, even an­chovies. Make the most of the dwin­dling evening light and roast th­ese small fish whole over an out­side grill. Pre­tend you’re in Spain and serve sim­ply with lemon juice and salt. Just for a short time, en­joy the in­tox­i­cat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence of live fire, crispy fish, and the salty and zingy flavours of the tail-end of sum­mer. It’s a proper food mem­ory.

Dam­sons, Black­ber­ries, and El­der­ber­ries

I don’t tend to jam, in­stead I sim­ply drop th­ese late­sum­mer fruits into my favourite liquor and put them some­where for a win­ters night. A driz­zle of berry-in­fused booze over clot­ted cream and a choco­late brownie – now that is some­thing to look for­ward to.

Herb flow­ers

I like pick­ing herb flow­ers from oregano, basil and thyme and mak­ing a dried rub with salt and mixed seeds. Just spread them out on a tray, sprin­kle with salt, maybe a lit­tle cit­rus zest and your favourite mixed seeds. The flow­ers will dry out in a day in a warm place, then you can jar them and use them for flavour ex­plo­sions over the next few months.
