When it is berry season and you have them in abundance – make jam! My go-to is this strawberry jam recipe. Jam is normally very sweet, but you don’t need as much sugar in this recipe. The lemon juice helps to set the jam and the vanilla pod adds a wonderful flavour, making it more than just jam for toast or buttered bread. It goes well with French toast, waffles, crumpets and even for breakfast or dessert with yoghurt, fresh fruit and nuts. Spread it between two layers of butter cake or use it as a sauce for pudding.

Toss the pesto through baby potatoes in the skin or chickpeas, add some crumbled feta and serve with rocket and fresh basil as a side dish.
