    Here is this months seasonal eating according to Mrs B!

    FISH.–brill, carp, cockles, crabs, dory, flounders, ling, lobsters, red and gray mullet, mussels, oysters, perch, prawns, salmon (but rather scarce and expensive), shad, shrimps, skate, smelts, soles, tench, turbot, whiting.

    Ok well – ling turns out to be quiet a few different fish – I have no idea which one she is actually refering to, if I find out I will let you all know.

    Mullet turns out be a type of fish and not just a dire hair cut (which I happen to like) from the early 80’s :/

    Shad turns out to be river herring.

    MEAT.–Beef, lamb, mutton, veal.

    I found another interesting article on the subject of veal. The site its self looks quiet interesting and I shall be looking at it in more depth.

    POULTRY.–Chickens, ducklings, fowls, leverets, pigeons, pullets, rabbits.

    Leverets doesn’t appear on wikipedia to my horror but unless I’m being very dyslexic (which I am!) then they are baby hares and no I don’t have a clue as to were you’d get them or what you’d do with them once you had them.


    VEGETABLES.–Broccoli, celery, lettuces, young onions, parsnips, radishes, small salad, sea-kale, spinach, sprouts,–various herbs.

    FRUIT.–Apples, nuts, pears, forced cherries, &e. for tarts, rhubarb, dried fruits, crystallized preserves.

    I have no idea what the &e probably a typo – I can’t really see it being anything else to be honest.
