Get the best of British food by eating seasonally. Find out what's in season during the month of November in the UK.
With winter looming November used be a time for black pudding and faggots, however with the introduction of winter fodder crops there is now plenty on offer for the seasonal gourmet. Crops affected by frosts are now gathered and put into store for the winter months, surprisingly there are a number of fruits and vegetables that improve with frost, such as parsnips, kale and sloes. Late pears and quinces are now also available while the game season is in full swing with partridge and mallard duck new on the menu. And our approaching Christmas dinners would not be complete without those traditional brussel sprouts, love 'em or hate 'em they are in! From the sea you will also find mussels at their very best during this time of year.
