The big fat truth about but­ter

If you’re an Abel & Cole de­liv­ery type – or a pleased-with-your­self al­lot­ment grower – then con­grats, you’re in for some se­ri­ous health wins be­cause fresh or frozen pro­duce beats tinned goods hands down. New re­search by Stan­ford Univer­sity found that BPA – the harm­ful chem­i­cal that coats dis­pos­able wa­ter bot­tles and can cause obe­sity and di­a­betes – lines the inside of tins, too. So step away from the opener and grow your own. Don’t have an al­lot­ment? Worry not – here’s chef Gizzi Ersk­ine’s pick of the best sea­sonal pro­duce to plant now in your gar­den or win­dow box:

1. SPINACH

Add com­post or ma­nure to the soil for bet­ter flavour. No, re­ally.

2. POTA­TOES

You can’t go wrong with th­ese. Keep well-wa­tered in dry weather.

3. CHARD

Har­vest reg­u­larly to en­sure a con­stant sup­ply. Never be with­out greens again.
