Blueberry Recipes

Wholewheat Blueberry Muffins
Since we've added blueberries to the VegBox ingredients database, it would be most remiss of us not to include a recipe for blueberry muffins!
Victoria Sandwich with Fresh Raspberry and Blueberry Filling
The Victoria Sandwich is a British "afternoon tea" classic, supposedly named by the staff at Osborn House in reference to Queen Victoria, who spent time in retreat there and enjoyed this particular treat as a favourite.

Our version uses fresh in-season raspberries and blueberries, "smooshed" (technical kitchen term) together by hand, rather than using jam.
Traditional Cherry Clafoutis
This traditional French dessert is so incredibly easy to make, and yet it's remarkably elegant. Certainly, if you use ramekins to make individual ones, it's idea for dinner parties. And yet it's so simple, it's also brilliant for family pudding, and (this is a bit naughty) it's lovely cold for breakfast, with the excuse that it's a bit like having pancakes! Just don't tell anyone we told you so...

Denise Tolson's Bramley, Cox and Celeriac Dish
This recipe was provided to us by Denise Tolson (of Jerusalem Artichoke fame!). She got it from her mum. We love it because it uses not one but TWO types of apple, and unlike our other celeriac and apple recipe, this one is really quite luxurious. Enjoy!

Thanks to The Bramley Apple Information Service for the photo.
Cream Of Asparagus Soup

Cream of asparagus soup is a great way to use up any woody ends of asparagus spears or any late season asparagus that's a bit too tough to use in side dishes or salads.

It works well with green or white asparagus, so use whatever you can get hold of.
