Barbecue Dexter Short Ribs

barbecue dexter short ribs recipe

Look at that meat. Crispy at its edges, yet scratch the surface and you’re greeted by a life-reaffirming juiciness. Forget the over-cooked burgers and sausages so full of rusk you’d scarcely recognise the pig; these ribs can’t be over-done. The longer you cook ’em, the better they’ll taste. This is how you win barbecue season.

Watermelon, Mint and Feta Salad

Recipe for Watermelon and Feta Salad

Though it has – thankfully – cooled off a little here in the UK, watermelon still firmly has its place in providing refreshment where only stifling heat previously existed. So well does the fruit live up to its name that devouring but a few chunks feels akin to seeing off a good few glasses of ice-cold water. Happily – for this recipe for Watermelon, Mint and Feta Salad, at least – watermelon lends itself as well as any fruit to savoury concoctions, providing a sweet juiciness you can’t help but gobble.

Greengage Tart

Greengage Tart

For those of you who aren’t sure, greengages are a variety of dessert plum with a taste somewhere between bitter and sweet. Green in colour and small in size, greengages are the quintessential cooking plum – though they are also enjoyable in their unadulterated form. Simply roast or reduce them with a sprinkling of sugar and they’ll work equally well in chutney, cake, puddings or a greengage tart.
