Now the warmer weather is here, our thoughts turn to al fresco eating and, of course, barbecues.
Our Farm Shop has everything you need to cook up a real feast outdoors, starting of course with the Honeywell’s counter. What’s a barbecue without some delicious home made sausages and burgers? Honeywell’s make all theirs themselves and what a selection there is – pork, Cumberland, pork and leek, pork and jalapeno, Cumberland with black pudding and so many more.
For burgers, you can choose beef, pork & apple, lamb & mint and more, and the ready-prepared kebabs include chicken, lamb and beef. Not to mention pork ribs, steaks, chops, succulent chicken thighs and drumsticks, the list goes on.
To go with your meat, why not try courgettes or aubergines sliced lengthways and chargrilled. These are lovely with a little green pesto rubbed into them beforehand – and our fresh green pesto is really quite amazing! Or you can halve red or yellow peppers and grill them for a sweet but smoky accompaniment.
Alternatively, take large mushrooms. chops their stems with garlic and some herbs, mix with butter, then use to stuff the mushrooms. Pop those on the barebecue until the mushrooms are hot and the herb butter is melted and they are delicious!
Our butchers can give you lots of tips on barbecuing meat and the same goes for our fruit and veg team so please just ask if you want some ideas. Happy grilling!
