Summer smush-ins

summer smush-ins

Serves 6

  • 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar or caster sugar

  • 4 handfuls strawberries, stalks removed

  • 6 plain scones

  • 1 tub good-quality vanilla ice cream

Put the sugar in a saucepan and add just a few tablespoons of water. Add the strawberries and turn on the heat. Cook them gently, just until they soften and start to release their sticky red juices. Take off the heat and allow to cool.



Slice the scones in half and put 2 pieces in each bowl (1 piece for very young children). Spoon a few strawberries over the top and a dollop of ice cream alongside.



Give each child a bowl and show them how to smush the strawberries into the ice cream and then the scone before eating.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
