Not quite so famous as mackerel with gooseberries but just as good – the acidic fruit counteracts the richness of the fish perfectly.
Anyone's who holidayed in Spain will have enjoyed this superb combination of seafood and rice, with a spicy kick. Delia has perfected her own version - and learnt a little culinary secret along the way...
Anyone who grows runner beans will know that sometimes they run away with you! If you're suffering a surfeit and don't know what to do with them, this lovely pickle is the answer.
Once you know how, meringues are the easiest thing to make and can be used in recipes from Eton mess to petits monts blancs and pavlova. They're also a great way to use up leftover egg whites from other recipes...
This famous Provençal vegetable stew is best made in the autumn when the vegetables needed for it are cheap and plentiful. This can be a most attractive dish but not if it ends up mushy. So to avoid this, make sure you don't cut up the vegetables too
Raspberries may not be the obvious choice for a crumble, but their sharpness perfectly offsets the sweetness and texture of the topping. Give it a go!
If you find blackcurrants a bit too strong, or can't track them down, use other fruit such as raspberries or loganberries. Either way, you'll need to eat this within three weeks of making it, but that's no hardship!
This traditional pudding will go down a treat after a roast lunch on Sunday - serve it with plenty of cream for the finishing touch.
Any of our muffin recipes can be adapted to any fruit, and blueberries have always been popular, so in this recipe I decided, instead of making muffins, I’d use the mixture to make a cake, which has turned out to be a real winner!
Using crab in these rosti is a brilliant idea as the richness of the crab meat is offset by the potato and the crispy result is totally irresistible. Serve them with Delia's Pickled Limes.
