Fresh Apricot PreserveMakes 3-4 lb (1.35-1.8 kg)

Fresh Apricot Preserve

This is my mother's recipe, and every year she waits patiently for the price of apricots to come down – which usually happens in August, especially at the end of a warm summer day when whole boxes are sold off at the markets by stallholders

 
 
Rigatoni and Asparagus au GratinServes 2

Rigatoni and Asparagus au Gratin

This is an excellent way to turn 8 oz (225 g) of asparagus stalks into a substantial supper dish for two people. Vegetarians might like to know that a vegetarian parmesan-style cheese is available from www.bookhamcheese.co.uk

 
 
Char-grilled Aubergine and Roasted Tomato Salad with Feta CheeseServes 4

Char-grilled Aubergine and Roasted Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

As Delia says, bread dipped into fruity olive oil and tomato juices is food of the gods. But roast the tomatoes first and it’s even better! This easy salad is the perfect thing for a hot summer’s day.

 
 
Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil SaladServes 2

Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Salad

The perfect way to bring a taste of Italy to your table with the minimum of effort and maximum appeal.

 
 
Blackcurrant Ice CreamServes 6-8

Blackcurrant Ice Cream

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!

 
 
English Gooseberry PieServes 8

English Gooseberry Pie

When Delia has an overload of gooseberries here's how she uses them up

 
 
Thai Fish Curry with MangoServes 4 generously

Thai Fish Curry with Mango

You won't believe how utterly simple and easy this is, and yet it tastes exotic and wonderful and, what's more, it can all be prepared well in advance and the fish added about 10 minutes before you want to eat it.

 
 
Braised Peas, Rocket and Spring OnionsServes 6

Braised Peas, Rocket and Spring Onions

This is a good recipe for slightly older peas, which, in my opinion, sometimes have more texture and flavour than the younger ones. However, if the peas you are using are very young, give them far less cooking time – 8 minutes at the most.

 
 
Spiced Pickled Runner BeansMakes about six 0.5 litre jars

Spiced Pickled Runner Beans

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.

 
 
Strawberry Cheesecake Ice CreamServes 8-10 – makes 2½ pints (1.5 litres)

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

This is what I'd call half dessert and half ice cream. My niece Hannah and nephew Tom are chief ice-cream tasters in our family and this one gets very high ratings indeed. It differs from most other ice creams in that it needs 2 hours in the main bod
