Ice cream recipes to cool down

Keep things cool with ice cream using soft fruits such as blackcurrants, gooseberries and strawberries all in season at the moment. Coconut with a zingy lime syrup looks impressive served in pretty long-stemmed glasses and for a truly refreshing ice cream lemon meringue combines the sharp flavour of lemons with the crunch of meringue.

Asparagus season

asparagus It may be maddeningly short, but the asparagus season means you need to be pretty quick off the blocks to make the most of it, before it comes to an end this year. Delia has plenty of ways to ring the changes with recipes for soup, pasta, tarts or simply steamed with Hollandaise sauce.

In season

su185-one-crust-gooseberry-20736 Early gooseberries - hard, small and very green - have the best flavour for cooking.

Varieties such as Whinham's Industry and Careless come into this category, though as they ripen and sweeten the former turns positively red and the latter a milky white. For a dessert fruit, try the larger, yellowy-green Leveller later in the season. If not fully ripe, gooseberries can be stored, covered, in the fridge for up to three weeks.
