BBC Seasonal Food Chart

BBC Good Food Seasonal Food Chart


We found this really comprehensive seasonal food chart on the
BBC Good Food pages.

You can separate it out to see just vegetables, fruit, fish or meat which is helpful or there is an "all" chart which includes everything.

We liked it particularly because if you select the "all" chart you will also get seasonal herbs which is dead useful and not included on most other charts. This means you can buy herbs when they are in season (if you don't grow them) and dry them or freeze them for when they are more expensive.

You can also click on the name of the month and it will redirect you through to the BBC's own seasonal food pages for that month which has a bit more detail about a small selection of the ingredients and tells you how to store and cook them and links you to recipes to cook with them.




A very useful chart - find it here.
