Summer - punnets of perfect strawberries! Make the most of all the summer strawberries. Delicious eaten as they are - but be inspired too by our strawberry recipes. If you are too busy to do anything with these wonderful strawberries now, simply freeze the berries until the winter.
Sugar your berries for freezing, or lie them in a bed of sugar. Remember that the sugar bed must be cold before covering it with berries. Unsugared berries will last 3-4 moths in the freezer, but if you use sugar, they will last for at least one year.

One of the last fruits of summer is the apple – delicious, juicy and healthy. And you can use it in so many ways.
Jams and Marmalades
It is easy and fun to make your own jam and marmalade. The sugar enhances the flavour of the fruit you are using and ensures a longer shelf-life for your masterpiece.
Mmm! What could be better than a rich, sumptuous chocolate cake to lift the spirits – either as an indulgent treat or to round off a meal.
Cheesecakes of every kind
How about serving up a creamy, tangy cheesecake rather than a regular cake at your party? Cheesecakes come in many different variations, forms and flavours.
