What British Produce is in Season in November?

It may officially still be autumn, but it definitely feels like there’s a change in the air and the November seasonal British produce on the shelves feels much more wintry. There are plenty of greens, root vegetables and lots of meat. Alongside chicken, beef and pork which you can get all year round, November is right in the middle of game season. Wild duck is an excellent source of iron and if eaten without the crispy skin (we know that’s the tastiest bit) it’s actually a very lean meat and lower in calories than a skinless chicken breast.  It’s also a great food pairing for the English red wines that are starting to emerge on the scene.  November seasonal British produce doesn’t have much choice in the way of fruit – it’s all about apples.  Luckily there are lots of varieties and they are very versatile so can be used in sweet or savoury dishes.
