Competition: We Grow Our Own's "Cultivate, Cook and Click" Competition

Yes people- i've won another one- haha! There is this website, ( which follows the trials and tribulations of growing fruit and veg on an allotment, and also has features on seasonal recipes and how to make the best out of your home-grown grub! Over the last couple of months they have ran a competition, that they call the "Cultivate, Cook and Click" Competition. Basically they select a few seasonal fruit and veg, and then ask for people's recipes including these ingredients. They judge the recipes (giving extra marks if you have home-grown your ingredients) and then the best recipes go to a public vote for a week- and the one with the most votes win!

Well, the fruit and veg for May's competition were Cauliflowers, Radishes, Spinach, Turnips and Spring Cabbages. I went for spinach, and sent in my Sweet Potato and Spinach Dahl recipe (the recipe is on the site) and it won! I won a collection of chilli sauces and jams from The Wiltshire Chilli Farm, and a couple of bottles of rapeseed oil from Oleifera.
