Especially in the summer months, it's a crime not to make the most of all those wonderful berries, just bursting with flavour. Delia gives them a starring role in a range of sublime desserts, cakes and special-occasion recipes.
Fruit salad with a kick, based on a Caribbean cocktail of rum, fruit juices and spice: a mouthwatering way to end a summer meal and a good recipe when entertaining.
This is a superlative chutney: it makes an elegant accompaniment to the Terrine with Three Cheeses, is excellent with Pheasant Terrine and is the main ingredient for a wonderful sauce for Roast Loin of Pork.
Perfect with lamb, this easy confit is a superb way to use up any gluts of redcurrants that may assail you during the summer!
This is it – the best method of roasting duck I've found to date, and of all the lovely sauces, this one – made with dried sour cherries – is the loveliest.
What is a tangerine?, we have to ask ourselves nowadays: the word seems to apply to a whole variety of species. I have made this particular preserve with one called Suntina (from Israel), and with another variety called Mineola.
This is not a jelly that will keep for long – perhaps only a month – but if you've been for a long walk in the autumn and returned with a harvest of brambles from the hedgerows, this recipe is so easy and quick to make and it does taste delicious.
There are chutneys and chutneys, but this one is simply the best of all. It is something I couldn't live without, having it permanently on my shelf. I love it with cold cuts, with cheese, but best of all, sausages and jacket potatoes
Those who like to use up every bit of food will love this one as it makes use of the pineapple's skin to create a really refreshing summer drink.
It's great to have a jar of these pickles in the cupboard to serve with cold meats or pates, but I think they also make a wonderful accompaniment to Crisp Roast Duck with Confit of Sour Cherries.
A pina colada without the rum (below left), but still tasting deliciously creamy and looking every bit as good as the real thing.
