After over indulging during Christmas, many of us make resolutions to improve our diets. Eating more fruit and vegetables is always a good idea.

This is the month when purple sprouting broccoli makes a welcome arrival.

You’ll need a haggis if you’re going to celebrate Burns’ Night and also some neeps.

You’d better read this article in the Guardian if you want to know if a neep is a swede or a turnip.

If you fancy trying something different, have you tried Jerusalem artichokes?

To keep up your vitamin C levels, it’s worth trying some blood oranges – the best ones are from Sicily.

If you want to make marmalade, the bitter Seville oranges will be available in January and February and make lovely marmalade.
