This homegrown superfood is in season for a few short weeks in Britain between April and June. Make the most of those melt-in-the-mouth spears and feast on this delicious vegetable while you can! Try asparagus cooked to perfection and dipped into soft boiled eggs. Griddled asparagus is a deliciously quick morsel; drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and a grating of Parmesan for a yummy supper.

Beautifully pink, long in length and slender, rhubarb is a versatile crop for sweet favourites like crumble, which also works particularly well with meat. Pair rhubarb with ginger for a delightful flavour combination, such as adding to a crumble mix. Poaching rhubarb with orange juice and zest is a simple and quick way to brighten an ice cream dish or pavlova.
