What foods are in Season in March?

Purple Sprouting Broccoli in Season March

March can be an awkward month for the seasonal cook but spring greens like purple sprouting broccoli are in abundance and Wild Scottish Salmon is coming into season. With a rich bounty of other seasonal fish a rich creamy fish pie with fresh greens would go down a treat. With plenty of wild hedgerows to get some tasty nettle tops from, March is a great time to make some Nettle Wine or Beer.
