pepper butters

This month’s food news, trends, Chris Bavin’s tropical dessert and what’s on the BBC this month Finishing a dish with a twist of black pepper is second nature to most home cooks, but restaurant chefs are using a range of pepper varieties, many of which are not true peppers but spices that give a ‘hot’ flavour similar to black or white pepper. Anne-Sophie Pic is a huge fan of different pepper varieties, using several at her restaurant La Dame de Pic (ladamedepic london.co.uk ), including Madagascan voatsiperifery, Tasmanian pepper berry and red Kampot (from Kampot, Cambodia). You can buy different peppers online (see our best buys, opposite), and in most supermarkets. If you want to try it at home, start by changing the variety of your black peppercorns, then move on…

have you tried umeboshi?

This unique Japanese ingredient is starting to crop up in restaurant dishes and has gained more interest recently after appearing on this year’s MasterChef, which led to a spike in Google searches. What is it? Umeboshi refers to Japanese ume plums that have been fermented in salt. They are often called Japanese pickled plums or Japanese salt plums, although the ume fruit itself is actually closer to an apricot than a plum. What does it taste like? Umeboshi plums are distinctively salty and extremely sour, with a tangy, fruity flavour. How can I use it? Umeboshi paste can be used in Japanese-style cooking, for example, mixed with soy sauce and mirin to make a tangy dipping sauce, used in a glaze for meat, fish or tofu or, as is traditional in Japan, simply eaten with rice.…

jersey royals

• A unique potato The Jersey Royal has been grown on the island of Jersey since the late 1800s and is the only vegetable in the British Isles to have EU Protected Destination of Origin (PDO) status. • How it’s grown It is Jersey’s microclimate, soil and environment that produce this unique potato. Steep, south-facing, coastal slopes mean the soil is light and well drained. In the early days, farmers used local seaweed (vraic) as a natural fertiliser and some still do. • Production & availability The island produces 30-40,000 tonnes of Jersey Royals per year and during peak production (May), up to 1,500 tonnes of potatoes are exported every day to Britain, which is the only place outside Jersey where you can buy them.…
