Pull Out A Plum! Our Little 'National Treasure' Is In Season!

Written by Gaynor Mairs on 09 September 2016

Apples are a great source of Vitamin B and C. Rich in dietary fibre, they should always be eaten with the skin on. Eat as is, add sliced to a peanut butter sandwich, serve with dips or as dessert with natural yogurt.


















At their ripest and juiciest, 'Our British Plums' are simply the best! Around 30 calories per plum, they are a rich source of Vitamin C and Vitamin A as well as a good source of fibre. Eat from the tree, chop though yoghurt, poach or preserve as jam or chutney.

I am a freelance food writer, blogger and recipe developer.

With a BA in Home Economics, I spent many years in recipe development working with major food companies supplying Marks & Spencer within the chilled sector.

Passionate about food and home cooking, I am committed to using seasonal, naturally sourced ingredients where possible.

I have been a regular guest author with Farmison & Co, an online retailer of the finest chef ingredients and a recipe tester and reviewer of food products.  More recently I have been endorsed as a BBC Goodfood Show Blogger and have written recipes for The National Osteoporosis Society promoting Vitamin D in the diet. In addition, I can provide retailers with regular/promotional blogs and recipes tailored to their specific needs.

I am also experienced in tasting events and can support the promotion of artisanal food products at fairs and exhibitions.

Originally from Scotland, I now live in Yorkshire with my husband and two children.
