Simple and in Season – June Recipe Link Up

Welcome to Simple and in Season which I am guest hosting this month for Ren Behan over at Fabulicious Food. Ren has been running this event for over a year now and it happens to be the first monthly link up that I ever entered  when I started my blog  last year!

I have entered recipes several times in the past year and plan to keep doing so as Simple and in Season is such a brilliant idea. June is full of goodies such as strawberries, raspberries, fresh peas, broad beans and salads of all descriptions. So use one or more of these ingredients to create something that reflects the lovely month of June!

I do think it is important to buy some of our fruit and vegetables in season. They are at their best flavour wise and  are usually priced competitively. Growing fruits and vegetables at my allotment also really helps to keep up to date with what is growing when throughout the year. Summer is the perfect time to buy seasonally as there are so many ingredients at their very best.

Simple and in Season might be a good opportunity for you to try out an ingredient you have never cooked with before or it could be a something that you always enjoy eating at this time of the year and happens to be a favourite tried and tested dish! Feel free to use a fruit, vegetable, fish or meat of your choice and get creating!

Here are a few links that may be of use to you!

The guidelines for Simple and in Season are listed below. Please have a read thorough then add your recipe via the Simply Linked Widget at the end of this post ;~

  1. All you have to do is come up with a dish using any seasonal produce you like (savoury or sweet) post it on your blog, link to REN’S PAGE and MY PAGE and add a link to your post in the box below (via Simply Linked). Feel free to use the current month’s badge on your post.
  2. Each round starts on the 1st of the month and ends on the last day of the month. I will pick a winner and will include a round-up post soon after each month closes. I will also send out a prize.
  3. You can take inspiration from anywhere – adapt a recipe from your favourite cookbook, try something from a magazine, make up your own creation or share a family favourite. The usual rules apply when using someone else’s recipe, please either get permission from the author to post it or adapt it in some way stating how/why you’ve changed it.
  4. Include any seasonal produce you fancy including fruit, veg, herbs, meat or fish.
  5. Link as many recipes as you like. You can link posts entered into other blog events or carnivals as long as it involves a seasonal food item (and fits in with their rules)
  6. The linky-up is open to anyone, anywhere. I’m happy to post prizes abroad and although it will be nice to feature as much British produce as possible, it will be interesting to see what’s in season elsewhere.

If you have questions or problems, email me or leave me a comment in the comment box at the bottom of the post.

I  look forward to seeing all your entries!

  1. Can’t think of anything except strawberries at the moment – you’re on! Gosh Laura, another challenge. I think you should get the award for blog challenge round-ups.

  2. I’m thinking strawberries too but might have another one for later :) I agree with Choclette that you should get an award for blog challenge round ups! 

  3. Still finding plenty of seasonal beetroot with its greens in tact.

  4. Hi,

    I have entered an asparagus recipe with the current weather, hopefully we will get this lovely seasonal veg until mid July- every cloud has a silver lining

  5. Hi Laura,
    So many great sounding recipes already. I’ve added a recipe for potato and tarragon pie that I hope fits the ‘simple and seasonal’ theme.
