Perfect Pesto

Puree herbs like thyme and mint in the blender with oil (add slowly, to taste), season with salt then store in a sterilised jar in the fridge for up to 2 weeks for a ready-made flavour enhancer.

Ideal for a quick sauce to add flavour to stews, potatoes, soups, chicken and fish.

Morning Fruity Fix

For a really tasty breakfast, mix thick yoghurt with mashed fruit and sugar -to taste – the night before – the fruit flavour infuses the yoghurt, giving it a great, refreshing taste.

Worth getting out of bed for.
