EARLY SPRING Goodies, Grains, Lentils, Preserves, and More for Spring Revitalisation | Seasonal Cooking


Early Spring is such a transitional season as we let go of heavier dishes and move to lighter dishes. Grains and Lentils still feature as they are the perfect transitional food. We finish off making preserves with winter stock, and move into using the spoils of Spring. Grains and other Goodies still feature well into Spring.
