British Produce In Season: December

How quickly did November speed by? It was certainly a busy month for me, what with my birthday at the beginning of the month, shaving off my hair, spending lots of time with my friends, and finishing the month by securing a brand spanking new job. 

Like many parents, I go in to December with bucket loads of excitement on behalf of my son. It's magical to be able to see the festive season through a child's eyes, and this year will be my first celebrating Christmas in my flat; the biggest challenge has been (and remains) deciding what to serve for Christmas lunch.

The good news is, there's so much glorious gorgeous food to choose from, because despite the nippy weather, December is great for Great British produce, especially when it comes to roast dinner essentials. Here's a list of what's fresh from the fields this month.
