If you pop into Waitrose you can pick up (free) from the checkout (you don't have to buy anything) their Waitrose NEW booklet for September - now, I know these books are really just soft sell adverts, but they do have some useful frugal info - the pages have seasonal fruit and veg ideas called "Try This". For example for red onions: "Drizzle red onions, halved waxy potatoes, unpeeled garlic cloves and rosemary, with olive oil, then roast until tender. Serve as an accompaniment to roast meats".
There are also a couple of full recipes and lots of other ideas which make these little booklets worth collecting (at least for a year!) like a page each full of suggestions for using herbs, mushrooms and English apples.
So when you see any of seasonal veg reduced or on offer anywhere, you can snap them up, knowing you can actually use them for something - try that!
