We are now into the shortest and what can sometimes be the coldest month of the year. February can bring snow and the garden is not yet awake so the flowers and colours of spring are a way off yet. But, we are lucky enough to be in the Seville orange season. I have made 15 jars and one has been sent off to the Marmalade Awards. There are also blood oranges and rhubarb as well as leeks, kale, purple sprouting broccoli and jerusalem artichokes. But the ingredient I have chosen for this month’s One Ingredient is not any of these. I have decided to go for………………..
Fresh, zingy, aromatic and equally at home in both sweet & savoury dishes.
If you are cooking with limes this month then both Nazima and myself would love you to link up your recipes here. There will be a round-up of all the entries at the beginning of March.
This monthly family friendly cooking challenge is hosted by Nazima at Franglais Kitchen and Laura at How to cook good food.
There is a monthly theme ingredient which we ask you to make, and blog a recipe around.
The rules are as follows:
The recipe does not have to be showy or complicated – just family friendly
It can be sweet or savoury (depending on the ingredient and your taste!)
You can use an old blog post if you wish but please let us know and please add the monthly one ingredient logo – we will create an appropriate logo for each month!
Feel free to enter the recipe to other challenges as well.
Please give credit if you use other people’s recipes and link to the source as appropriate.
Please enter by using the “Linky” tool which will vary according to which one of us is hosting. The “Simply Linked” widget can be found at the bottom of this post.
Please include a link to our websites as the challenge hosts.
If you tweet your recipes and use the hashtag #oneingredient we will retweet all those that we see.
We hope you feel inspired to enter!
Laura and Nazima
