Peaches, mangoes, cherries, raspberries, apricots – these are the food of the gods! I was raised in a family that loved eating fruit and we had more than twenty fruit trees in the garden around our house. They provided us with fruit almost all the year round, as through the winter months we ate the pears and peaches we’d bottled in the autumn, using the summer’s excess.

Although it’s useful to have a few staples such as apples, oranges and bananas available throughout the year, to my mind it’s the best ripe fruits of each new season that make life really exciting. I almost always prefer a fruit dessert to a rich cake or pudding at the end of a special-occasion meal. I believe cakes are best served in the middle of the day, rather than at the end of the evening meal when we feel full.

If you have children, try to involve them when buying fruit so they learn to recognise the different varieties and understand when they are ripe. And don’t forget that a snack of two fresh apricots or a mandarin is far better for you nutritionally than a chocolate bar or biscuit.
