Strawberry is such a great summer flavour, not least for its association with summer picnics and Wimbledon. This strawberry and mint curd is a sweet summer treat and a good way to use up the strawberries that finally ripened here (if they really need using up). Mint goes well with strawberries, and the fruit/mint combo reminds me of a jug Pimm’s.

Cantaloupe and ginger soup. This is a bit out of my comfort zone. I’ve never made cold soup before (not sure that I’ve even ever eaten it) and I really wasn’t sure about soup made from fruit. There was a cantaloupe melon in the fruit basket, getting very soft, and for some reason “cantaloupe soup” popped into my head. I knew google wouldn’t let me down and it turns out that there are lots of recipes. This is adapted from a few that I came across.
I was somewhat dubious about how this turned out, but it was fresh and delicious. Sweet, but not too sweet to serve as a starter at dinner. It would also be good as a light summer lunch.
