Have you ever wondered why you can buy strawberries in the middle of winter?

Probably not. Globalisation has kept our supermarkets so well stocked, we’ve lost all concept of seasonality when it comes to our food.

But given that in-season ingredients are cheaper, fresher and better tasting, it’s worth getting to know the where and when of your supermarket favourites. To get you started, here are a few ideas for dishes that incorporate the best ingredients April has to offer.

Asparagus Omelette

Once picked, asparagus begins deteriorating more rapidly than the majority of vegetables, so eating it seasonally gives you a chance to taste it at its all-too-brief best.

Rather than relegate your in-season asparagus to lowly side dish status, let it take centre stage with this delicious Asparagus Omelette recipe. Enhanced with pesto and parmesan, this recipe is delicious, low in calories and couldn’t be easier to prepare - unless you have a VonShef Omelette Maker on hand to help you cook it perfectly on both sides.

Banana, Spinach & Kiwi Smoothie

All three of the eponymous main ingredients of this healthy and refreshing supergreen smoothie recipe are in season in April, so if you want to experience the joy of raw seasonal ingredients, we’d recommend throwing them into the VonShef Glass Jar Blender and blitzing them together with ice.

Royal Jersey New Potatoes

These deliciously nutty, paper thin-skinned potatoes are produced exclusively on the island of Jersey and only exported to the UK. At their most flavoursome and plentiful from April to June, you don’t want to miss out on trying these potatoes when they’re at their best!

We’d recommend keeping things simple by steaming them to perfection with a VonShef 3 Tier Steamer, then serving with a generous dollop of creme fraiche, a knob of butter and seasoned with salt and pepper.

Slow Roast Leg of Lamb

Thanks to frozen imports from New Zealand, we’re able to enjoy lamb all year round - but now that spring’s arrived, there’s no better time to get your hands on a fresh, locally sourced British lamb. It far surpasses the cheaper New Zealand variety in taste and tenderness, so grab yourself a VonShef Stainless Steel Roaster Set, invite the family over for a Sunday roast and astound them with an in-season leg of lamb, slow roasted on a bed of onion, garlic and rosemary (follow the delicious recipe here!).
