Twenty Tantalising Spring Fruits Recipes


This month’s seasonal spring fruits round up comes from Hannah who blogs at Domestic Gothess

Summer is the season most often associated with bountiful fruit. However, while perhaps not as plentiful, there are many delicious fruits that are at their peak in springtime.

The sadly short blood orange season lasts from late winter to early spring, make the most of it! It is very versatile and works well in cakes, tarts, curds, ice cream, sorbet and cocktails as well as savoury dishes; or just eat them as they are (mind the stains…).

Rhubarb, though not technically a fruit, is most often used like one; and is equally as versatile as the blood orange, in both sweet and savoury dishes. Passion fruit and kiwis, though generally available year-round, are at their best in the early spring; use passion fruit in mousses, cakes and cheesecakes and kiwis in pavlovas, fruit salads, with yoghurt or in cocktails.

Finally, the apricot comes in to season in late spring; bring out their best by roasting them, using in jams and chutneys, or pairing them with almonds in a delicious tart.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
