Strawberry, Cucumber & Feta Salad

Maybe you’ve got a village jubilee fete coming up and you’ve agreed to bake something for the cake sale, well you could use up some of your strawberries, in these delicious strawberry and white chocolate muffins.

And if you’re looking for something alcoholic and oh so very British to celebrate the jubilee, we think Pimms is fitting for the occasion. Pimms has become the quintessential British summertime drink, with the Pimms Royal Cup being a firm favourite for many royal celebrations all over the country. But alongside a glass of Pimms with your homegrown strawberries and mint, we’ve also got the perfect, cooling and refreshing dessert idea – give this strawberry Pimms sorbet a go!

And let’s not forget the kids! We also have a fantastic recipe for dairy-free, strawberry ice-cream.
