What to eat this month – October

Each fruit or vegetable has a prime time when it’s at its seasonal best. Some are great for over half of the year; others only hit their peak for a month. Either way it means extra flavour, extra crunch, extra juiciness—all super-fresh and great value. Use our guide to find out what’s in season this month and how to bring out its best.

Sweetcorn
Sweetcorn, boiled and eaten on the cob is sweetness itself. Great as a simple, healthy snack or plucked to add the juicy kernels to salad. 

Our quick and tasty tip:

  • Try blackening in a dry non stick pan, then slicing off the kernels and mixing with lime, chopped tomato, chilli, mango and mint for a delicious salsa.

Cox Apples
The Cox is the quintessential English apple, widely said to have the finest taste of them all. October brings a bumper crop of these rosy, thin-skinned, crisp and sweet darlings.

Our quick and tasty tips:

  • Try sautéeing quartered and peeled apples in butter with a handful of sultanas until golden.
  • Add a lug of calvados, a sprinkling of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice and continue to cook until just tender.
  • Delicious served with ice cream and pancakes.
