Roasting Pan Butternut Squash & Prawn Curry

This recipe is definitely not the usual way of making a curry – instead of hovering over the stove, you simply add the various components to the roasting tin at a couple of intervals during cooking and walk away. While it does take a fair while to roast, it’s totally fuss-free to make, and it turns out beautifully rich, aromatic and full-flavoured thanks to its time being ignored in the hot oven.

Hedgerow Gin

Made with bullace or damsons instead of sloes, the flavour profile of this ‘hedgerow’ gin is a little less complex than that of sloe gin and it’s ready to drink a lot sooner too, making it great for adding to autumn-themed cocktails or simply serving over ice as a fabulous seasonal tipple. That’s not to say that sloe gin isn’t worth making too in a few weeks’ time – there’s nothing nicer than a thimbleful on a cold dark night in winter – but this simpler alternative is tasting pretty good right now, as a fruity, seasonal segue into autumn.

Chai-Infused Blackberry & Pear Muffins

Light, fluffy & richly flavoured, these muffins feel very cosy and autumnal and would be ideal for serving up to friends with coffee for brunch or late in the afternoon, or packed up and brought with a thermos of chai tea for a walk at the beach.
