August (Seasonal Food)

BOOM!! Summers well on it’s way now and I cant believe how exciting it is, all this amazing produce coming out!! Truly a month of abundance!!

Harvest approaches with its bustling day
The wheat tans brown and barley bleaches grey”

Nice little extract of a poem I like referring to August and summer! And the soon coming of Autumn and the game season! (which I will be taking part in for you guys!)

It also sees the celebration of “Lammas Day” or “Loaf Mass” which is an Anglo-Saxon celebration of the wheat harvest, it also being 1 of the four festivals that mark the key points in the natural and farming cycle that originated here in England and Scotland from the Celts! It’s actually a big thing throughout our history and as such I will be dedicating a recipe to it! (my recipe will obviously be gluten and wheat free though!) But BOOM! What a way to start a post with such a knowledge BOMB!

Anyway moving on August sees some gorgeous treats all of which I will be making some recipes with and telling you how and why they’re so DAMN AWESOME to use for us who want to be healthy and who exercise!
