JUNE SEASONAL FOOD

Food for June and July here in Ireland is all about strawberries, blackcurrants, new potatoes, beetroot, green beans and all types of salad leaves. This time of the year is great in Ireland for eating loads of seasonal salads and finishing up with strawberries and ice cream. The elderflower is also everywhere and this is the time of the year for collecting elderflower and making elderflower cordial. We are so lucky here, we walk lanes and pick our elderflowers, which we take for granted. I have to say elderflower cordial is one of my favourites! So, this month for recipes, we have some lovely recipes from Warren at Cistin Eile, a fantastic restaurant in Wexford and a recipe on how to make elderflower cordial. Just because it’s that time of the year! And to be very bold, we will finish off with a lovely old fashioned coffee cake recipe also from Cistin Eile.
