DAY IN THE LOAF

PROTEIN POWER I wanted to say a huge thanks for Pick of the crop (May). I’ve been veggie for three years and found myself in a bit of a rut, recycling the same dishes. It inspired me to explore other protein sources – paneer tikka masala is definitely on the menu! As a student, the cost per serving is helpful, too.

Email or write in and we’ll choose one Star Letter*, which will win a £50 giftcard**.

I’m sure even the neighbours heard my excitement when I opened your magazine and saw the plaited wholemeal spelt loaf (Masterclass, May). I’ve been baking my own bread for my family of eight since last year. I enjoy trying new flours, so was thrilled to see a bread recipe using spelt flour. It got the big thumbs up from everyone!

OCEANS OF FLAVOUR I picked up your May issue and found the feature on oily fish (Varieties) really interesting. Too often I find myself grabbing the usual tin of tuna, but I felt inspired to try some other affordable options. The herring puttanesca was quick, easy and delicious. I will definitely be making it again!

IN SEASON Make the most of vibrant British summer produce with these flavour-packed recipes

DISH UP

Fresh cherries These naturally sweet stone fruits are at their best in high summer. Store them, unwashed, in a sealed container in the fridge. Wash and pat dry just before using. If you don’t have a cherry pitter, you can remove the stones by inserting an icing nozzle or chopstick into the stem end of the cherry, then pushing the pit through the other side. For a light summer lunch, spread soft goat’s cheese on toasted ciabatta. Top with spinach, cherry halves and chopped pecans. Finish with a drizzle of balsamic glaze.

*Wash the jars in hot soapy water and rinse. Put them open-side down onto a baking tray along with the lids in an oven preheated to gas 1, 140°C, fan 120°C for 15-20 mins, until completely dry. If using clip-top jars, don’t put the rubber seals in the oven; boil for 5-10 mins instead

These sweet cherries are great with vanilla ice cream, or spooned over cakes and puddings.


SUMMER HARVEST

Brussels sprouts These love ’em or hate ’em veg are associated with Christmas, but they’re also great in summer salads. British sprouts will be in store in August. Sprouts have an earthy, nutty flavour. Smaller ones tend to be sweeter. They cook quickly, so keep an eye on them, as they can become mushy and bitter if overcooked. They’re ready when easily pierced with a knife. Try marinating halved sprouts, sliced red onion and halloumi in harissa, lemon juice, shredded mint and olive oil. Thread onto skewers and barbecue until charred and cooked through.

Sweetcorn A summer barbecue favourite, sweetcorn is at its best in August. Fresh cobs are best eaten on the same day of purchase. Store in the fridge in its packaging. If opened, keep fresh - by wrapping in damp kitchen towel. Try barbecuing or grilling, then mix the kernels with lime juice, black beans and chopped tomato, chilli, avocado and coriander for a Mexican-style salsa.

SUMMER HARVEST

Beetroot Sweet and earthy in flavour and a beautiful, vibrant purple in colour, beetroot is extremely versatile. Wash your hands as soon as you’ve finished preparing beetroot, as the purple juice can stain your fingers. For a tangy burger relish, roast whole with garlic, olive oil and a little balsamic. Dice, then add chopped capers, parsley and mint. Mix 1 part cider vinegar with 2 parts olive oil; stir into the beetroot.

1 Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the beetroot wedges onto a 30cm square of tin foil, along with the fennel seeds, garlic and 1 tbsp of the oil. Season, then fold up into a parcel and seal. Put on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 45 mins, or until tender. 2 Meanwhile, wrap the chicken in another 30cm square of foil with the lemon juice and 1 tbsp oil. Cook in

the oven for the last 25 mins of the beetroot’s cooking time, or until cooked through with no pink meat showing. Remove the parcels and leave to cool slightly. Unwrap the chicken and slice, reserving the cooking juices. 3 Cook the tagliatelle in a pan of boiling water following the pack instructions. Meanwhile, squeeze the garlic cloves from their skins and put in a food processor, along with half the roasted beetroot, the walnuts, Parmesan, parsley and remaining oil. Add 21/2-3 tbsp water and blitz to a purée. Season. 4 Drain the tagliatelle, then toss with the remaining roasted beetroot, goat’s cheese, sliced chicken and a little of the chicken cooking juices.

Blackberries These sharp yet sweet fruits are at their best in late summer. They’re best stored unwashed, on a layer of kitchen paper in the fridge to prevent them crushing each other. In British folklore, it was believed to be unlucky to pick wild blackberries after Michaelmas, on 29 September. For a fresh and fruity drink, blitz blackberries and quartered lemons (peel and pips removed) in a food processor with a little sugar and a few mint leaves. Strain into a jug then top up with soda water.

VARIETIES

1 BALSAMIC VINEGAR Sweet balsamic hails from Modena in Italy. Made from grape must (pressed grape skins, seeds and stems), the best are matured in oak barrels. Use in rich dressings and glazes.

2 CIDER VINEGAR This vinegar has the same apple-like sweet essence as the cider it’s made from. This variant is perfect for barbecue sauces and marinating pork, as well as being the superior choice for pickling.

3 RED WINE VINEGAR

4 RICE WINE VINEGAR

Matured from red wine, this is a mild, versatile vinegar that works well in marinades, sauces and salad dressings. It has a richer flavour than white wine vinegar, with more mellow notes.

Rice wine vinegar is widely used across Japan and South East Asia. Less sharp than other vinegars, it’s often used to make dipping sauces and to season sushi rice.

5 MALT VINEGAR Made from malted barley, the high acidity of this vinegar cuts through fatty flavours, making it a chip shop favourite. Its cousin, distilled malt vinegar, is a little sweeter and works well in sauces.

With its distinctive, sharp flavour, vinegar adds extra zing to all kinds of dishes, from classic vinaigrettes to rich sauces

1

S T O RE

Vinegar will evaporate quickly if it is too warm, so store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. More acidic varieties, such as cider and malt, will last longer, but all types will keep for a long time if properly stored.

Vinegar can enhance countless hot and cold dishes. Adding a little red wine vinegar to a tomato sauce gives a fresh, subtle sharpness. A drop of malt vinegar added to the pan before poaching an egg will help prevent the white from feathering.

CHILLI SAUCE *ForSWEET an instant dipping sauce, sweeten rice wine vinegar with sugar and stir in chopped chilli to taste. Serve with spring rolls.

Great weather means only one thing: getting outdoors and sharing great food with the people you love. Whether you’re hosting a holiday-style feast in the garden, or just hoping to cheer up a friend with their favourite dish, Tesco’s here to help Ellie & Vi’s Food Love Story...

Ellie and Vi have been best friends for years and have always enjoyed celebrating their successes together, as well as supporting each other through tough times. So when Vi broke up with her boyfriend, Ellie knew exactly what to do to make her feel better: organise a picnic in the park and make their favourite fruit pizza for them to share. Fun, inventive and delicious – it’s the perfect summer comfort food!

When Lucy, from our story, was little, her dad used to make her his famous pesto pork. Now, with little ones of her own, she loves getting the whole family together, firing up the barbecue and treating her dad to his favourite meal.

Little help This recipe calls for a barbecue, but it can be cooked in the oven, too. Visit tes.co/pestopork to find out how.

LU CY ’S ‘ DAD’S FAVO URI T E ’ P ES TO P ORK Serves 6 Takes 1 hr 35 mins, plus marinating Cost per serve £2.03 1kg pork leg joint 1 tsp fennel seeds 4 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp red wine vinegar 1 tsp dried oregano 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 2-3 courgettes (about 500g), sliced 1 fennel bulb, cut into 1cm thick slices, fronds reserved 1 red pepper, cut into 6 strips 1 lemon, zested and cut into wedges ¼ tsp chilli flakes (optional) 1 x 130g pot finest* pesto with fresh basil, to serve 1 x 85g bag watercress, to serve

1 Cut the string from the pork and unroll. Remove the skin, cut it in half and put on a plate, scored-side up. Pat dry with kitchen paper. Crush the fennel seeds with a pestle and mortar and rub over the skin. Cover with clingfilm and chill. 2 Butterfly the pork by slicing it almost all the way through so you can open it like a book. Put in a dish, add 2 tbsp oil, the vinegar, oregano, garlic, and some black pepper. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 1-24 hours. Remove from the fridge 30 mins before cooking; sprinkle with a pinch of salt. 3 Preheat the oven to gas 9, 240°C, fan 220°C. Put the pork skin on a rack over a grill tray and roast for 30-40 mins, until crisp. Leave to cool then cut into shards. 4 Meanwhile, light the barbecue and wait until the flames have died down and the coals are ashen. Grill the pork* for 25-30 mins, turning occasionally, until cooked through. Cover with foil and leave to rest. 5 Toss the courgettes, fennel slices and pepper in 2 tbsp oil. Barbecue for 3-4 mins on each side, until charred. Toss with the zest and chilli, if using. Scatter over the fennel fronds. Slice the pork and serve with the pesto, veg, watercress, crackling and lemon wedges. Each serving contains Energy

Lucy’s Food Love Story…


Adam’s Food Love Story...

Everyone loves a holiday and Adam’s family is no exception, but this year they aren’t able to go away. To make matters worse, Adam knows his mum had her heart set on going to Mexico, so is particularly disappointed. To cheer her up, he’s bringing Mexico to her in the form of classic fish tacos. ADAM’S ‘S TAYC AT ION’ F I SH TAC OS Serves 4 Takes 50 mins Cost per serve £3.79

Spice it up Stir 1 tsp smoked paprika into the spice mix before coating the fish for an extra smoky hit.

4 red peppers, seeded and thinly sliced 2 red chillies 2 tbsp olive oil 1 red onion, thinly sliced 2 limes, ½ juiced, the rest cut into wedges 1 x 275g tacos meal kit 2 x 280g pack cod loins 1 Little Gem lettuce, leaves torn ½ x 30g pack coriander, leaves chopped

1 Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Put the sliced peppers and whole chillies on a baking tray. Add the olive oil, season and toss together. Roast in the oven for 30 mins, or until softened. 2 Meanwhile, put the onion in a bowl with the lime juice and a pinch of salt. Mix well and leave to soften for 20 mins, tossing halfway through. 3 Empty the spice mix from the taco kit into a dish. Turn each cod loin in the seasoning so they are all completely coated. 4 Take the tray out of the oven and remove the chillies. Spread out the peppers, nestle the cod among them and return to the oven. Roast for a further 12–15 mins, until the cod is cooked through and the peppers are charred at the edges. 5 Meanwhile, remove the seeds and any charred skin from the chillies. Finely chop the flesh and stir into the salsa from the taco kit. 6 To serve, flake the fish into a bowl and serve alongside the peppers, onions, coriander, lettuce, salsa, lime wedges and taco shells so everyone can assemble their own and tuck in.

Avoid withdrawing cash on credit cards – you’ll often pay a two to three per cent fee. Pick one that doesn’t charge, such as Metro Bank’s debit card (in Europe) or the Halifax Clarity credit card. Tesco Bank offers zero per cent interest for up to 28 months.

2

Tipping etiquette varies: in the US, 20 per cent is the norm, while in Japan the custom is considered rude! In Europe, a tip of about 10 per cent is best, says the International Currency Exchange. Check your destination at gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice.

TO MAKE YOUR

HOLIDAY

CASH GO FURTHER

Opt for travel insurance with at least £2 million for medical expenses, £1 million for personal liability, £3,000 cancellation, £1,500 baggage and £250 for cash.

5

When buying currency, focus on the total price rather than the exchange rate and compare the best deals using moneysupermarket.com. Don’t buy currency at the airport as you’ll get a raw deal. Use the free XE currency converter app to check prices abroad.

When paying with credit cards, opt for the local currency, instead of pounds, to save up to five per cent on hidden costs.

Portugal’s Algarve (above) is 2017’s bargain destination, with eight holiday essentials (including dinner for two, coffee and sun cream) costing just £33.36. This just pips Bulgaria (£33.53), says the Post Office Travel Barometer.

Heading to Europe? Carry a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) from nhs.uk/ehic, which gives you access to healthcare abroad. Avoid scam sites that charge you for the card, and buy adequate travel insurance as well.

Use apps such as Skyscanner and booking.com to find deals on flights and hotels, get offline maps and travel ieads at CityMaps2Go, and download offers on attractions at GetYourGuide.

If your hire car is stolen or damaged, you could be left with a big bill. Firms sell excess waiver policies, but these can be pricey, so shop around in advance using moneymaxim.co.uk. Get a licence-check code from gov.uk, so the rental firm can check your driving record.

To keep necklaces tangle-free, thread one end of the chain through a plastic drinking straw and do up at the other end. Wrap in bubble wrap for easy transportation. You can use one length of bubble wrap to pack multiple pieces of jewellery: simply lay an item on the wrap, roll up once, then repeat. This keeps your jewellery in one place and ensures things stay hassle-free.

PACK SMART

4 2

To save on weight, take only musthave products and buy the rest when you arrive. Decant lotions into small bottles then put your washbag inside a plastic bag and wrap it in a small towel, so your clothes stay safe if anything leaks.

Rolling clothes reduces wrinkling and saves space. If using an upright wheelie case, imagine it standing up so jumpers, shoes and heavy items go at the bottom and more delicate items at the top.

If you plan to take hand luggage only, ensure half the clothes you pack are dual purpose and choose colours that work well together, so every item mixes and matches. Kaftans or beach cover-ups make pretty evening tops. Take simple, well-cut shorts that you can pull on with trainers or flip-flops during the day, then dress up with wedges and statement jewellery at night. A blanket scarf will keep you warm on the plane and can be folded to act as a pillow, as well as filling in for a cardi if the evenings are cool.

6

To transport earrings and make sure pairs stay together, make use of old buttons. Simply insert an earring into each buttonhole, then pack in a padded bag. Or repurpose a weekly plastic pill box – the small compartments are perfect for transporting studs, chains and rings.

An empty shoe is wasted space, so fill it with charging leads, travel plugs and underwear wrapped in a plastic bag. Get more packing hacks at tes.co/packing.

Pack two outfits in one by choosing two tops to go with each skirt and pair of shorts or trousers that you're taking. It's a good idea to pack light-coloured items inside out – it will prevent them from picking up any dirty marks that could leave them unwearable.

7

Avoid folding and warping padded bras by laying them flat and stacking on top of each other in your case. Put balled-up knickers or socks inside the cups of the bottom bra to prevent denting and maximise space.

Guidebooks and maps add weight to your case, so instead photocopy the relevant pages, snap pics of them with your phone or search the App Store for relevant digital travel guides.

If you’re packing tablets – paracetamol, ibuprofen, antihistamines and the like – ditch the boxes and just take the blister packs and dosage instruction leaflets.

MAKE YOUR CAR JOURNEYS FUN

Tiny children love pretending, so ask them to ‘help you drive’. Get them to hold an imaginary steering wheel and encourage them to help you change direction. They can also pretend to change gear and indicate, or pull on the handbrake when you do. When you eventually reach your destination, thank them for being such a good driver!

Can’t cope with the children's endless chatter a moment longer? Make silence a game – nobody is allowed to talk until you see a petrol station. Bliss!

Pass time on long drives with a round of Number Plate Scrabble. Players take turns to choose a car in the distance. Once the car is close enough to read its number plate, players compete to be first to make a word from the three letters at the end. It must begin with the first of the three letters and contain them in the same order: winning words for the plate BD51 HRT might be ‘heart’ or ‘harpist’.

6

A good way to coax bored teenagers away from their phones is by playing 'movie connections' – someone names a film and an actor or actress in it, then the next person must give the name of another star from that movie and another film they’re in, and so on. See how long you can keep it up for!

If you don’t mind a bit of clearing up, then letting the kids play pass the parcel in the back is a great little distraction. Buy cheap, small toys and wrap them in several layers of paper. They’ll love ripping off the wrapping and the toys will keep them amused. Or you can make a lucky dip bag and offer it as a treat if the kids are good, or to mark a point in the journey.

4

For really little ones, print pictures of things they might spot along the way, such as cows, bridges or churches. See how many pictures they can match.

Washable markers and small white boards are fab for drawing games. Better yet, print off photos of the family, laminate and let the kids draw on specs, beards and spots!

9

Would you rather have spiders in your pants or sit in a bath with snakes? Eat jellied eels or drink a raw egg? Older kids love this, so make up some questions and be prepared for it to get really revolting!

Use an old DVD case to make a portable colouring kit that’s ideal for travelling. All you need is the case, a pack of pens or pencils and a few sheets of paper. Head to tes.co/DVDcase for the instructions.

Twenty Questions is a classic game. One player thinks of an object or person and the other players can ask up to 20 questions (which can only be answered with a yes or no) to guess it. To make things easier, pick a category – film stars, sports, food, etc.

Go camping – in the comfort of your own garden! Pitch a tent, cook on an outdoor stove and sleep under the stars. Leave phones and tablets inside and tell stories and play games instead. Remember to wrap up warm!

STAYCATION

What better way to see your local area than by bike? Find a list of cycling routes across the country at cyclinguk.org, or use the site’s cycling journey planner to map a bikefriendly route. Look out for their Big Bike Revival events nationwide, where experts provide free upkeep tips and bike health checks.

8 Try to live like you’re on holiday – no laundry during your staycation, no cleaning or any other household chores. Only reply to necessary texts. Sleep in, get dressed when you want to and eat when you’re hungry (not because it’s 6pm!). Focus on relaxing and having fun with the kids. Who needs the Costa Del Sol?

Just as you might visit a fiesta on holiday, check the local paper for nearby fêtes and festivals where you can pretend to be a tourist for a day.

Create a hotel-style kids’ club in the garden. Set up an art zone where the kids can draw on the patio with chalk and make a sandpit by filling an old paddling pool with play sand. Offer a prize for the best sandcastle!

9

Cool off with a swim at an outdoor pool. Follow @LidoGuide on Twitter to find your nearest lido and any special activities it offers over the school holidays. Make a day of it – pack a picnic and the sun cream!

Make the most of what’s around you. Have you ever taken the open-top bus tour of your city (city-sightseeing.com)? You'll learn about its history; there might be more to where you live than you thought…

JA PA N E S E - I N S P I RE D ONIGIRAZU (SUSHI SANDWICH) Makes 2 Takes 20 mins Cost per serve £3.06 High in protein; source of vitamin D; source of vitamin B12 350g sushi rice, cooked to pack instructions (125g uncooked weight) 4 sushi nori seaweed sheets 1 x 100g pack hot smoked salmon flakes 1 small avocado, stoned and thinly sliced 4 leaves Romaine lettuce soy sauce, for dipping (optional) For the pickled cucumber ½ cucumber, halved lengthways and very thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, crushed ¼-½ tsp chilli powder, to taste ½ tsp sugar 1½ tsp rice vinegar

1 To make the pickled cucumber, combine the ingredients in a bowl, cover and chill. Season the sushi rice with salt; keep warm.

2 To assemble, lay a nori sheet rough-side up on a piece of clingfilm. With wet fingers (to prevent sticking), position a quarter of the rice in an even diamond shape in the centre of the nori sheet. Position half the salmon, avocado, lettuce and a spoonful of the cucumber pickle on top of the rice in the same shape. Put a second quarter of rice on top of the filling and press down into a diamond as before. 3 To enclose the filling, wet your fingers and fold the corners of the nori sheet into the centre to create a square-shaped, sealed parcel with the filling inside. Gather the clingfilm around the parcel and gently press down to compact. Set aside for 5 mins while the nori sheet softens and sticks to the rice. Repeat steps 2-3 to make a second parcel. 4 To serve, slice through the centre of the nori with a wet, sharp knife, cutting through both the clingfilm and sandwich. Remove the clingfilm and serve immediately, with soy sauce alongside for dipping, if you like. Each sandwich contains Energy

Cut each in half, spread a little mayonnaise on one side of the bread and set aside. 3 When ready to serve, heat a large pan over a high heat.

Brush with a little oil and griddle or fry, turning, for 2-3 mins, until charred but not burnt. Set aside. 2 Butter both sides of the bread. Lay the prosciutto on top of half the slices, followed by the nectarine slices, then divide the grated cheeses between them. Top with the thyme leaves and sandwich with the remaining slices of bread.

Ready,

steady, bake! These fun recipes will get kids trying their hand in the kitchen, and teach them classic baking skills, too 74

KNEAD TO KNOW To knead the dough, use the heel of your hand to stretch it away from you, then roll it back in on itself. Pick up and rotate, then stretch away from you again. Repeat until the dough is smooth and elastic.

MIND THE GAP

Don’t worry if there are gaps between the centre of the flower and the petals in step 4. They will close as the dough rises.

T E A R A N D S H A RE F L O W E R B RE A D Serves 14

DF

Takes 50 mins, plus rising Cost per serve 8p 250g strong white flour, plus extra to dust 250g strong stoneground wholemeal flour 1 x 7g sachet dried yeast 1½ tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing 325ml warm water 1 egg, beaten ½ tsp poppy seeds butter, to serve (optional)

1 In a large bowl combine the flours, yeast and ½ tsp salt. Make a well in the centre and add the oil. Stir in the warm water to form a dough. 2 Turn out onto a surface dusted with flour and knead

(see tip, left) for 5-10 mins until smooth and elastic, sprinkling with extra flour if necessary. Return the dough to the bowl, cover with oiled clingfilm and leave to rise in a warm place for around 45 mins, until it has doubled in size. 3 Knock back the dough by punching down into the middle. Remove from the bowl and knead on a floured surface for 2-4 mins, until smooth and elastic. Roll into a long sausage shape. Cut 1 large piece for the centre of the flower and 11 smaller, equal-sized petals. 4 Shape the large piece into a circle and flatten slightly. Pinch the top a few times to create texture. Put in the middle of a large greased baking sheet. Shape the small pieces into petal shapes and arrange so they are just touching each other in a flower shape around the central piece.

5 Pull out the tips of the petals a little and use a knife to lightly mark a few lines along the length of each one. Cover with oiled clingfilm and leave in a warm place for 30 mins, or until risen. 6 Preheat the oven to gas 8, 230ºC, fan 210ºC. Brush the bread with the beaten egg, then scatter the poppy seeds over the centre of the flower. Bake for 20 mins or until golden brown. If the bread starts to brown too much, cover with foil for the last 5 mins of baking. Serve warm or at room temperature, with butter on the side. Each serving contains Energy

LITTLE COOK’S TIP

Rolling out the pastry on baking paper means you can turn the paper, rather than the pastry, to get the right shape and avoid tearing.

GET STUCK IN

PIZZA PINWHEELS Makes 16

Takes 45 mins, plus chilling

MEN EDITU

PAG E7

Cost per serve 7p 225g plain flour, plus extra to dust 100g olive spread, chilled and diced, plus extra for greasing 3 tbsp sundried tomato paste 40g Cheddar, grated 1 tsp dried oregano 1 egg, beaten

1 Sift the flour into a bowl, add the olive spread and rub together with your fingertips until the mixture has the consistency of fine breadcrumbs. 2 Add 3-4 tbsp cold water and stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture begins to come together. On a work surface lightly dusted with flour, combine to form a smooth pastry. Wrap the pastry in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 30 mins.

76

3 Roll out the pastry on a piece of nonstick baking paper to a 25x30cm rectangle. Trim to straighten the edges. Spread with the sundried tomato paste, leaving a 1cm border. Scatter the cheese and 1/2 tsp oregano on top. Starting from one of the short ends, tightly roll up the pastry to make a long cylinder. Freeze for 10 mins. 4 Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C and lightly grease 2 baking sheets. With a sharp knife (see Safety first, right), cut the pastry into 16 round slices. Divide between the sheets, shaping back into circles if they’ve lost their shape. Brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle over the remaining 1/2 tsp oregano. Bake for 14-18 mins, until cooked through and golden. Serve warm or cooled to room temperature. Each pinwheel contains Energy

To cream the spread and sugar by hand, beat the spread with a wooden spoon until pale. Add the sugar and mash it into the spread with a fork, then beat with the spoon until light and fluffy.

Serves 14

Takes 1 hr 10 mins, plus cooling Cost per serve 40p 275g butter spread, plus extra for greasing 275g caster sugar 4 large eggs 350g self-raising flour 1/2 tsp baking powder 175g raspberries 1 x 10g tube bright red gel food colour 75g mascarpone 1 tbsp icing sugar, sifted, plus extra to dust 125g Greek yogurt

1 Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180ºC, fan 160ºC. Grease and line a 20cm square cake tin and a 900g loaf tin (at least 6cm deep) with nonstick baking paper, giving the loaf tin a 1cm collar above the sides. 2 In a bowl, cream the spread and sugar together with an electric hand whisk until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one by one, beating between each addition. Sift over the flour and baking powder and fold in with a spoon until smooth. 3 Crush 25g raspberries with a fork. Put in a bowl with 400g cake mix. Cover the remaining mix in clingfilm; set aside. Stir 3/4 of the food colour through the berry cake mix until bright pink. Spoon into the square tin and bake for 18-20 mins. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then remove from the tin to cool completely. Stamp out 9 hearts with a 5cm cutter. 4 Spoon 5 tbsp cake mix into the loaf tin, spreading to cover the base. Place the hearts in the tin, upright and touching each other (see picture, below right). Spoon the remaining mix around and over the hearts, ensuring it falls between the hearts and baking paper at both ends of the tin. Leave a gap of at least ½cm at the top of the tin. 5 Bake for 40-45 mins until cooked through and risen. Cool for 10 mins, then remove from the tin to cool completely. 6 Put the mascarpone and icing sugar in a bowl. Stir in the yogurt, then spread over the top of the cake. Top with the remaining berries, dust with icing sugar and slice. As part of a healthy diet, enjoy this cake for a special occasion or treat. Each serving contains Energy

KIDS’ BAKING

SAFETY FIRST Adults should carry out any steps using sharp knives. Start kids off using small serrated knives, and always supervise them when chopping or grating. Make sure they stop grating before they reach the end of the ingredient. An adult should take things in and out of the oven. Remind kids to wash their hands before and after cooking, and in between tasks, especially if handling raw egg.

1 Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Mix the flaxseeds with 3 tbsp water and set aside for at least 10 mins. 2 Mix the ground almonds, bicarbonate

of soda and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Add the flaxseed mix, oil, maple syrup and 1 tbsp cold water, then work into a rough pastry using your hands or a spatula. Wrap tightly in clingfilm and chill for 15 mins. 3 Meanwhile, put the sliced nectarines in a bowl, along with the sugar and finely sliced basil. Toss to combine, then set aside to soften for 10 mins. 4 Remove the pastry from the fridge and transfer to a large sheet of nonstick baking paper on a work surface. Put another sheet of baking paper on top of the pastry to prevent sticking and use a rolling pin to gently roll it out into a rough circle that’s about 1cm thick. Carefully peel off the top layer of paper before heaping the nectarines in the centre, leaving a 3-4cm border of pastry around

the edge. Reserve any nectarine juices that are left in the bowl. 5 Using a palette knife, carefully fold the pastry inwards over the edges of the fruit centre. Don’t worry if it cracks or bits fall off, simply use the palette knife to smooth or reattach. Lift the baking paper to transfer the galette to a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 25-30 mins, until crisp and golden. Remove from the oven and spoon the reserved nectarine juices over the top. Cool on the tray for at least 10 mins before transferring to a serving board and cutting into slices to serve. Each serving contains Energy

HOW TO STOP FOOD STICKING TO YOUR GRILL

Place delicate items such as fish on a lightly oiled piece of foil that’s just bigger than the fish itself, rather than directly onto the bars. It’ll be easier to turn, too. Oil the meat, not the barbecue, and shake off any excess to avoid flare-ups. Rub the hot bars with a cut potato before grilling kebabs; the starch forms a barrier that acts like a nonstick coating.

Smoky Mix smoked paprika, brown sugar, garlic granules, ketchup and a splash of beer or stout. Lovely for red meat.

FLAVOUR BOOSTERS

Scatter herbs and spices around the edges of your coals to give barbecue smoke a lovely aroma. Try cinnamon sticks, whole star anise or bay leaves. Use large sprigs of woody herbs such as thyme or rosemary as a brush for oils and marinades. If you throw the sprigs on the coals after cooking, the smoke will help to keep flies at bay. For an instant sweet and tangy glaze, put your favourite beer, wine, cider or even cola or ginger beer in a spray bottle and spritz over meat while you’re grilling it.

Perfectly preserved Want to save some of that gorgeous seasonal produce for the colder months? Here’s everything you need to know about preserving 3 WAYS TO STERILISE JARS Boil lids for 10 mins and then leave to dry. Wash jars in hot, soapy water and rinse well, then heat using the… OVEN Place damp jars in an oven on a low heat (gas 1, 140°C, fan 120°C) for 15-20 mins, until hot and completely dry. HOB Place a clean tea towel in the bottom of a deep saucepan, add the jars and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer vigorously for 10 mins. DISHWASHER Place the jars upside down on the top rack of an empty dishwasher and run on a hot cycle without detergent.

GLOSSARY OF PRESERVES

JAM A legally protected term in the UK, indicating a product containing a minimum of 60 per cent sugar. Anything less is a ‘conserve’ or simply a ‘fruit spread'. JELLY The American term for a smooth, clear fruit jam. CHUTNEY Denotes a savoury relish, although these still contain sugar. They are usually made with fruit and/or vegetables and vinegar, and seasoned with herbs or spices. PICKLE The simplest of all preserves, made by keeping fruit or vegetables in vinegar or salty brine. Some can be made in a matter of minutes.

KIT LIST

Preserving equipment can be quite expensive, so here are some suggestions for simple substitutes… ✱ PRESERVING PAN Any wide, deep saucepan will work. Use one with a thick base to avoid scorching. ✱ THERMOMETER There are other ways you can gauge when your preserve is ready. Chutneys are

3 RULES FOR PERFECT PRESERVES

done when a spoon dragged along the bottom of the pan leaves a clear channel for a few seconds. For jam, use the wrinkle test (see below). ✱ JAM FUNNEL Wide-necked funnels make filling jars a doddle, but you can also use a measuring jug – just be sure to sterilise the jug before use, and wipe any drips off the rim of the jar before putting the lid on.

THE WRINKLE TEST

Before making a jam or jelly, put a couple of saucers in the freezer. To test if your jam is done, pop half a teaspoon onto a cold saucer. Leave for 1 min to cool, then run your finger through it. It should wrinkle slightly and not run back. If not, simmer for 5 mins more and then test again.

READY, SET, GO!

PECTIN is a naturally occurring substance in ripe fruits, which sets to a gel when heated with sugar. Fruits such as green apples, plums and redcurrants are naturally high in pectin, but others, such as peaches and cherries, might need a little help to set. Here's how to boost the pectin in your preserves: ✱ Lemons are naturally high in pectin, so adding lemon juice to jam is the cheapest, easiest way to increase its setting qualities. ✱ Liquid pectin is sold in bottles, and is a concentrated extract of apple juice and citric acid. ✱ Jam sugar is granulated sugar with added pectin, and is ideal for jams made with soft fruit and berries. Don't confuse it with preserving sugar, which contains no pectin and is best used to make jams and preserves with fruits that are naturally high in pectin (see above).

MISTAKEN IDENTITY Don’t forget to label your preserves. After a few months in storage, it’s much harder to see the difference between blackberry jam and red onion marmalade! Always wait for the filled jars to cool before adding the labels, otherwise they won’t stick.

1 Use fruits that are in season, as soon as possible after picking or buying, and discard any that aren’t absolutely perfect. Over-ripe strawberries are a great snack, but will make a lousy jam. 2 It’s much faster to make two small batches of preserves than one big one – and the quicker a jam is cooked, the fresher and more flavour-packed it will taste. 3 Cut fruit and veg into equal-sized pieces for chutneys and pickles, so they cook at the same speed.

PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE

✱ Once a jam has reached its setting point, leave it to cool for 15 minutes before decanting into jars. This helps to keep the fruit evenly distributed. ✱ Most chutneys benefit from maturing for a few weeks before eating to allow the flavours to mellow. Store in a cool, dark place. Once opened, keep in the fridge and eat within a few weeks.

ALL CLEAR?

Crystal-clear jellies are easy to achieve if you follow one simple rule: no squeezing. The juice needs to be allowed to drip slowly through a jelly bag or a sheet of clean muslin suspended over a bowl, or the result will be cloudy. If you can suspend the bag, gravity will do the work for FLAVOUR PA IRINGS you, resulting Gooseberry Earl Grey tea in a beautifully Blackberry rosemar y clear preserve.

JAM SESSION

HOT SPOT

ON THE BUBBLE

Jam recipes often specify a ‘rolling boil’ when you're trying to achieve setting point: this is when the liquid is boiling so rapidly that stirring the pan doesn’t stop it bubbling. This is ideal for preserves, as the aim is to get the jam to setting point as quickly as possible, but it’s still essential to stir continuously to stop it from burning on the bottom.

Always use tongs or an oven glove to handle just-sterilised jars as they will be very hot.

FROTH TACTICS

The froth or ‘scum’ that rises to the top of the pan can spoil the appearance of your finished preserve, but don’t be tempted to keep removing it during cooking. Wait until the setting point has been reached, then skim off any residue with a large, metal spoon.

SMILES SAVE FACE How to keep your gums and teeth healthy… • Avoid brushing too aggressively and not more than three times a day, as this can lead to enamel wear and gum recession – two of the main causes of sensitivity. • Use a soft toothbrush to protect tooth enamel. • Floss regularly. • Don’t skip visits to the dentist. • If you grind your teeth, seek advice from the dentist. • If you’re concerned about enamel erosion, talk to your dentist about how you can still enjoy acidic foods, such as fruit, fruit juice and carbonated drinks.

E

veryone loves an ice cream or lolly on a sunny day, but perhaps you avoid them because of the pain of sensitive teeth. One in three of us knows the twinge of sensitivity. It’s triggered when a drink is too cold, a meal too hot, and an ice cream too, well, icy. Tooth sensitivity is a common dental problem. It develops over time as gums recede and the enamel wears down, so that the softer, inner part of the tooth – called dentine – becomes

exposed. Many of us will go to great lengths to keep the pain at bay, from eating on only one side of the mouth, to avoiding trigger foods altogether. And yet relief is at hand through some simple changes in your oral care routine. You could try swapping your toothpaste for one that’s been specially formulated for sensitive teeth, such as Sensodyne Rapid Relief, from the number one brand recommended by dentists for sensitive teeth*. As well as giving you clean teeth, Sensodyne

Rapid Relief is formulated for speed and is clinically proven to relieve the pain of sensitivity in just 60 seconds**. It creates a physical seal over exposed dentine and, when used twice daily, gives long-lasting protection from the discomfort of sensitivity. So this summer, thanks to Sensodyne Rapid Relief, you can enjoy that ice lolly. Sensodyne Rapid Relief, £4.50/75ml (£6/100ml) and Sensodyne Rapid Relief Whitening, £4.50/75ml (£6/100ml)

It’s a British favourite and the king of pies, but how many people can say they’ve made one themselves? Here’s how, in just six steps…

Gently melt the lard and butter in a pan with 200ml hot (not boiling) water. Sieve the flours and 1 tsp salt into a bowl, then pour in the lard, mix and stir in quickly. Add half the egg and the mustard. Mix to make a smooth, soft pastry. Cover and chill for 10 mins. Meanwhile, cut a circle of nonstick baking paper the same size as the base of the tin.

Generously flour the outside and bottom of a 20x5cm solid-base cake tin. Wrap ¼ of the pastry in baking paper; set aside in the fridge. Put the rest on a floured baking tray. Roll to a circle 28cm in diameter. Place the tin on the circle of baking paper, in the centre of the pastry, and raise the pastry up against the sides of the tin to the top. Smooth, trim, and reserve the offcuts.

Mix the meats, onion, herbs and spices; season. Roll out the remaining pastry to a 5mm thick x 22cm wide circle for the lid. Shape the offcuts into leaves. Remove the pie crust from the fridge and ease it from the tin using a hot palette knife. Remove the tin and circle of baking paper, leaving the pastry and collar. Spoon in the filling, pressing down to level.

Brush the rim with cold water, top with the lid and crimp the edges. Lay the leaves on top and make a small hole in the centre. Brush with egg. Bake for 1 hr, then reduce the temperature to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C and cook for another 30 mins, or until crisp. Remove the paper; brush the sides with egg. Bake for another 30 mins*. Cool for 20 mins.

Use 4 layers of nonstick baking paper to make a collar the same height as the pastry. Wrap around the sides and firmly secure the bottom, middle and top with kitchen string, so the sides are supported. Transfer to the fridge and chill on the tray for 30 mins, or until firm. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C.

Soak the gelatine in cold water until pliable. In a pan, heat half the stock until simmering. Remove from the heat; stir in the drained gelatine and mustard. When the gelatine has dissolved, add the remaining stock. Use a funnel to pour into the pie hole gradually, until full. Once at room temperature, chill the pie overnight. It will keep for up to 5 days.

Expert tips Make removing the pie from the tin easier by wrapping the outside in clingfilm before raising the pastry. Once chilled, use the overhanging clingfilm to ease the pastry away from the tin.

To shape the pastry, lift it up and press against the side of the tin, then smooth over with your hands for an even finish. To crimp, pinch the edges together all the way around, then use the back of a teaspoon to make rounded marks in the pastry edging.

If the pastry gets too warm as you hand-raise it, it’ll slip down the tin. If this happens, chill for a few minutes to firm up. It should feel tepid, not warm. Make sure to pour the gelatine mixture into the pie hole gradually – you will need to do it in stages to

give the liquid time to absorb. You may not need all of the mixture. To freeze, wrap the pie tightly in clingfilm and foil, then freeze. It will keep frozen for up to 1 month. Defrost in the fridge for 12 hours, before bringing to room temperature.

Serves 12 Takes 24 hrs, including churning and freezing Cost per serve £1.79

For the base 65g butter, plus extra for greasing 150g digestive biscuits For the layers and decoration 375g blueberries, plus extra to decorate 1/2 lemon, juiced 385g caster sugar 3 x 500g tub full-fat Greek yogurt 1 tbsp clear honey 4 limes, 1 zested and all juiced 2 x 450g pack mango fingers 400g fresh raspberries, plus extra to decorate 200ml double cream 1 tbsp icing sugar fresh mint leaves, to decorate

1 To make the blueberry layer, gently heat the blueberries, lemon juice and 150g caster sugar in a pan, until the sugar has dissolved and the berries have softened. Purée in a food processor until smooth, then strain through a sieve, discarding the skins. Leave to cool, then chill for 30 mins. 2 Grease and line the base and sides of a 20cm loose-bottom cake tin (it should be least 7.5cm deep) with nonstick baking paper, making sure the paper reaches 2cm above the sides of the tin. In a food processor, whizz the biscuits to fine crumbs, then melt the butter and mix with the biscuits. Spoon into the base of the tin and flatten with the back of a spoon. Chill in the fridge. 3 In a bowl, fold 200g of the chilled purée (reserving the rest) through 300g yogurt. Churn in an ice-cream maker until frozen but still scoopable. Remove the cake tin from the fridge, spoon the blueberry mix over the biscuit base, level and freeze for 1-2 hrs, until frozen solid. 4 For the thinner blueberry layer, stir 20g blueberry purée (reserving the rest to serve) into 150g yogurt. Remove the tin from the freezer, spoon over the frozen blueberry layer and return to the freezer. 5 To make the lime layer, whisk together 400g yogurt and 100g caster sugar with the honey, juice of 3 limes and the

112

lime zest, until the sugar has dissolved. Churn in an ice-cream maker until frozen but scoopable. Remove the cake tin from the freezer, spoon over the thinner blueberry layer, level and freeze for 1-2 hrs, until frozen solid. 6 For the mango layer, purée 11/2 packs of mango and the remaining lime juice in a food processor until smooth, then pass through a sieve. Whisk the mango purée with 250g yogurt and 60g caster sugar. Transfer 150g to a bowl and set aside. Churn the rest in an ice-cream maker, until frozen but scoopable. Spoon over the lime layer, level and freeze for 1-2 hrs, until frozen solid. 7 In a food processor, purée the raspberries until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve (discarding the seeds) and set aside. To make the thin raspberry layer, stir 1 tbsp of the purée through the reserved mango mix, then spoon over the frozen mango layer, level and return to the freezer. 8 For the top raspberry layer, whisk 250g yogurt with the remaining caster sugar and raspberry purée. Churn in an ice-cream maker until frozen but scoopable. Spoon on top of the thin raspberry layer, then level and freeze for 1-2 hrs, until solid. 9 When ready to serve, remove the tin from the freezer and place the base on an upturned bowl to steady. Ease the tin down and off the sides. It could take up to 10 minutes to release – wiping the outside of the tin with a warm, wet cloth will help speed up the process. Transfer the cake to a plate or stand and peel away the baking paper. 10 To decorate, whip the cream and icing sugar to soft peaks and spoon on top of the cake. Decorate with the extra berries, remaining mango and the mint leaves. Use a sharp knife to cut into wedges, and serve with a drizzle of the reserved blueberry purée. Each serving contains Energy

No problem! Just freeze the different fruit yogurts in separate containers, stirring several times with a fork during freezing for a smoother texture. Once frozen, but still scoopable, layer in the cake tin, then continue following the method.

1 Put the sugar in a heavy-based pan with 100ml water. Gently heat until melted, then bubble – swirling the pan, but not stirring – until the mixture turns a rich caramel colour. Remove the pan from the heat, pour in half the cream, and whisk. Add the remaining cream, the butter and salt, then whisk until smooth. Pour into a heatproof container and chill until needed. 2 Remove the caramel sauce from the fridge, microwaving or heating gently in a pan to loosen if necessary.

e all know that summer is meant to give us a chance to take time off, let our hair down and bask in the sun. But research by Nationwide has found that one in four of us returns from our summer holidays feeling more frazzled than when we left. And over half of mums say their stress levels increase dramatically over the summer*. While the long break can feel like a masterclass in juggling work and childcare, organising time off, navigating traffic jams and airports, and managing the family purse strings, it should also be a chance to chill out, boost feelings of wellbeing, and create happy memories.

TOP TIPS TO MANAGING HOLIDAY STRESS

*55 per cent of 1,000 mums surveyed by meditation app Anamaya. **Survey of 1,000 grandparents, commissioned by HSL Chairs

Adopt the Scouts’ motto and be prepared

‘If you’re a parent and see the school holidays as something to be endured, you’re not going to enjoy them,’ warns life coach Mette Theilmann. ‘You need to change your mindset from, “Oh no, it’s going to be a long holiday,” to, “Yes, this is going to be relaxing, fun and an opportunity for all of us to connect.”’ This can be done in a few ways, says Mette. ‘Being organised helps things run smoothly, so get together with the children to create your summer holiday bucket list for all weathers.’ Write each activity on a separate scrap of paper, then pop them all into a pot; if the bike ride can’t be done because it rains, you can pick an alternative. That way, you’re less likely to panic about what to do next when things don’t go to plan. ‘Remember, too, that the summer holiday is also your break, so use the opportunity to delegate responsibilities to all family members,’ says Mette. ‘This will make you a happier, calmer parent – and having daily chores in the mix (helping with the laundry, pairing socks or watering the garden) not only keeps our kids busy, but can boost their self-worth by making them feel valued in the day-to-day running of the family.’

Don’t be afraid to ask for help If you and your partner are both taking separate time off work to care for the kids (known as ‘tag-teaming’), it can save a fortune on childcare – but it can also leave both parents exhausted. ‘If you don’t ask, you don’t get, so request flexible working from your employer over the

summer holidays,’ says parenting coach Judy Reith. Two-thirds of grandparents expect to spend ‘significantly more time than usual’ looking after their grandchildren during the holidays, with the average grandparent spending up to 600 hours with their grandchildren**. If you’ve got the opportunity to take relatives up on their offers of childcare, go for it. But if you don’t have relatives who can help out nearby, why not swap play dates with other families in the same boat? You can have their kids over one day, then they can reciprocate another. At the weekend, meet up with other families who have children so you and your partner can enjoy some downtime with friends while the kids amuse themselves.

Remember, money can’t buy happiness It’s rarely the expensive experiences we give our children that they enjoy the most – or recall with the most fondness. ‘If you

in holiday mode 4 Get from day one A hassle-free holiday can boost your health, but it takes most of us a while to unwind. In fact, research shows that more than one in 10 of us never fully relaxes during time away*. Try to start your getaway ‘in control’ by finishing all of your packing the day before you leave so you can get excited without a to-do list hanging over you. Make sure any loose ends are tied up at work, so you’re not fretting over phone calls or emails while away. Make an effort to enjoy the journey, too. After all, it’s not just about the destination. Leave plenty of time to get where you’re going and build in a few extra hours to make it a more leisurely trip. That way, you’re less likely to get frustrated by long queues and delays. Rather than living out of your suitcase, unpack and hang up your clothes as

120

soon as you arrive – this will adjust your mindset and mean you’re physically ready to start the holiday. If you plan to sightsee, avoid overscheduling: plan excursions in the mornings and evenings and devote afternoons to total relaxation. Start as you mean to go on by booking a spa treatment or scheduling downtime by the pool into the first day of your stay – and don’t feel guilty about having a siesta. Remember, a holiday isn’t a race – so try to enjoy yourself!

Don’t let tech spoil quality family time

According to Ofcom, almost half of all internet users say they’re guilty of ‘connectivity creep’, the term for spending longer online than you intend to. In fact, 31 per cent say that they’ve missed out on time with friends and family as a result. And a report by Childwise found that children aged five to 16 spend an average of six-and-a-half hours a day in front of a screen, instead of being in the moment and interacting with each other. The summer holidays are a good time to break this pattern with a digital detox – and forge stronger family bonds, as a result. Life coach Mette Theilmann suggests aiming for ‘tech-free’ hours, days oreven weeks. ‘You’ll be amazed at how much time it frees up.’ Try instituting a ‘screen curfew’ at home, with all devices switched off by a certain hour. This will improve sleep and encourage kids to find new ways of entertaining themselves. Just remember that you need to set a good example and follow the rules as well. On family days out, why not suggest everyone switches off their phones for the day? Teens will be reminded that it's possible to have fun without the internet as they rediscover simple pleasures such as walking, cycling and sports. By switching off, you'll reduce your own dependence on tech, too, and maybe even find a new sense of freedom.

*Survey by Monster.co.uk WORDS KIM JONES PHOTOGRAPHY GETTY IMAGES

think back to your own childhood, you might remember the summer as a time when your parents had more time to play with you,’ says parenting coach Judy Reith. If those are the sorts of memories you want to create, try coming up with simple and enjoyable shared activities and make them a priority. Try camping in the garden, making popcorn or eating lunch under the table. ‘Kids value presence more than presents,’ says Judy. They’ll love it if you join in with their fun and games! Put on a talent show (you included!), bounce on the trampoline, blow bubbles and race to burst the most or get soaked with the hose in the garden. Understanding that there isn’t an endless supply of money for holiday treats is a valuable lesson for children to learn, but it shouldn’t be treated as a negative – it can be fun discovering inexpensive things to enjoy as a family. ‘Challenge older kids to find things to do on a low- or no-budget day. Pack them off to the library to hunt for leaflets about local free events – they’ll feel a sense of achievement and realise it’s not just Mum or Dad’s job to come up with 24/7 entertainment for six weeks!’ adds Judy.

HEALTH TIPS

BEAT TH E H EAT Suffering from pollen sniffles? Overdone it in the sun? Don’t panic! We’ve got all the nifty tricks and tips you need for a happier, healthier, more carefree summer…

BE SUN SAVVY

Grabbing the sun cream before heading out is second nature (isn’t it?). But before you use last summer’s leftovers, make sure you’re still getting the most from that lotion… l SUN CREAM HAS A SHELF LIFE Research by the Australian Medical Association reveals that a third of us don’t realise sun cream becomes less effective over time. Most creams carry an expiration date, usually around three years after manufacture. As a general rule, once open, cream should last between 12 and 18 months when kept in a cool, dark place. l WHO KNEW? Some antidepressants, oral contraceptives, retinoids and over-the-counter painkillers can make you more likely to burn in the sun. Make sure you always read the packet instructions carefully so you can be prepared if you're going outside for any length of time. l MEASURE YOUR SUN CREAM How much sun cream is enough? For adults, the NHS recommends two teaspoons of at least SPF15 (or higher) to cover your head, neck and arms. Of course, if you're only wearing swimwear, then you’ll need more – two tablespoons’ worth. If you're going out in the sun for a long time, you'll need to apply it twice before you leave. Once 30 minutes prior to leaving and again just before you head out.

NO MORE BITES

A survey by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine found that threequarters of people didn’t seek advice about mosquitoes or even pack a repellent before travelling to a tropical location. If you’re a magnet for mozzies, it’s worth planning ahead… l DON’T SWEAT IT Mosquitoes are attracted to the smell of sweat as well as perfume, so shower regularly and use a fragrance-free deodorant like Mitchum Ultimate Gel Unscented, £4. We all know mozzies are repelled by the smell of lemon (citronella candle, anyone?) – but you could also try reducing your insect appeal by adding a few drops of lemon juice to your shower gel or shampoo before using as normal – it’s surprisingly effective! l GO NEUTRAL Because mosquitoes can detect heat patterns, they’re attracted to dark colours like black, blue and purple, which retain heat. So if you want to avoid being eaten alive, choose light-coloured clothing such as white, beige or light grey, which reflects heat. l KEEP CALM Been bitten? Hot showers can make itching worse, so bathe in cool water. If you haven’t got any antihistamine cream to hand, dab a little toothpaste or Vicks VapoRub on your bites – the menthol will temporarily cool and calm the skin.

HEALTH TIPS

STAY HYDRATED

SOOTHE THE BURN

l TUCK IN Munch on juicy fruits such as oranges or chunks of melon. Make easy, nutritious ice lollies by popping slices of melon on wooden skewers and freezing, and swap your lunchtime sarnie for a salad packed with hydrating cucumber, tomatoes and lettuce.

l ACT FAST As soon as the first signs of sunburn appear, take ibuprofen regularly over the next 48 hours (always check the pack for dosage instructions). Its anti-inflammatory effects can help reduce swelling and redness.

l THINK KID-FRIENDLY HYDRATION If your kids hate drinking water, try freezing halved raspberries or seeded grapes mixed with water in ice-cube trays instead.

l BREW A GREEN TEA Cool used tea bags in the fridge, then apply to the affected area as a poultice. Green tea contains tannins that have been shown to calm the skin.

l ENJOY THAT CAFFEINE HIT It’s a myth that a moderate caffeine intake dehydrates you – it has similar hydrating benefits to water. Just stick to a maximum of four cups a day.

l TRY A SALTY SPRITZER Epsom salt is renowned for soothing aches and pains, but its anti-inflammatory qualities are also great for sunburn. Mix with water in a spray bottle and then mist over affected areas.

FIGHT HAYFEVER

STOP PRICKLY HEAT

It affects one in five* of us in the UK and if you live in a big town or city, hayfever is often exacerbated by high pollution levels. Treatments such as eye drops, antihistamines and nasal decongestants are really helpful, but these expert ideas could also ease your symptoms. l GET COUNTING The pollen count issued by the Met Office isn’t just an indication of when to stay inside; you should also avoid drying your clothes outside when it’s high to stop them irritating you later on. l SET A TRAP Spread a thin layer of Vaseline inside your nostrils to catch those pesky pollen particles, stopping them from entering your nasal passages. l STRIP OFF Since clothes and hair are such a haven for pollen, jump in the shower at the end of the day and put your clothes in the washing machine to stop it spreading to your sofas and bed.

Cancer Research UK says getting sunburnt just once every two years can triple the risk of developing melanoma. It’s easy to get caught out: up to 80 per cent of the sun’s rays penetrate the clouds even on overcast days. Don’t rely on clothes to protect your skin – a white T-shirt only has an SPF of about seven. If you get burnt by the sun, try these quick, soothing tricks.

‘Prickly heat usually results from blocked sweat glands, but might also be caused by bacteria on the skin,’ advises Elizabeth Rimmer, skincare expert and director of London Professional Aesthetics. Try these tricks if you’re suffering. l LIGHTEN UP Thick sun cream can make prickly heat worse as it blocks sweat ducts, so swap for lighter sprays. l COOL IT Stay out of the sun and cool your skin down with calamine lotion, cool packs or aloe gel. l PUT IT ON ICE Make mini ice packs to calm irritated skin: simply freeze aloe vera gel (try Banana Boat Aloe Vera Gel), in ice-cube trays, then massage the cubes into sore skin when required. Or try an oatmeal bath: steep a few handfuls of oatmeal in the bath and soak yourself for 10 minutes. The oats also act as a gentle scrub to unblock pores.

‘Most of us don’t drink enough water, but in the heat it’s more important than ever, as it’s easy to become dehydrated,’ says GP Dr Clare Morrison. ‘Regardless of whether you feel thirsty, sip non-alcoholic drinks regularly.’ We need six to eight glasses of fluid a day to stay hydrated. Try these tips to up your fluid intake…

HEALTH

THE FIT FILES YOU CAN DO IT Sport England’s This Girl Can campaign has inspired 2.8 million ladies to increase their exercise. Want to know which activities are causing the biggest buzz? Roller Derby Try this for a fun cardio experience on skates.

We round up the latest exercise trends and tips

Rugby Not convinced? You should be: female participation has grown by more than 70 per cent. Football Try the new FA Soccercise class if you want to practise first. Cheerleading An athletic combo of stunts, jumps and dance. Zumba We’re still moving to the rhythmic beats of this favourite. Love cycling or running? Join Strava, a social network and app that lets you analyse your performance stats and spur on fellow members.

Expert PROTEIN BLAST

Instead of reaching for a sugary snack after exercise, grab a low-sugar, high-protein Grenade Carb Killa bar, £2.50/ 60g (£4.17/100g). It’ll help muscles recover… and tastes delicious, too!

FUNCTIONAL FITNESS

What is it, exactly?

Exercise that simulates everyday movements, such as reaching, bending and pulling, to train muscles to work together. Group training combines these into a 45-minute class, often with circuits and resistance equipment. 131

Why do it?

It makes everyday movements easier, reducing the risk of, say, twisting your ankle as you go about life, and improves balance and core stability. Classes can ramp up the intensity and fun: the F45 circuit class even has a DJ.

WHAT SHOULD I EAT AFTER A WORKOUT? Rick Miller, clinical and sports dietitian (rick-miller.co.uk) picks three post-workout meals: 1 A baked potato (skin on) with cottage cheese, onion and chives, plus a salad with olive oil dressing. 2 A palm-sized portion of baked salmon and fist-sized portion of brown rice with roasted veg. 3 Spaghetti and courgetti with cherry tomatoes, chopped chicken and a tomato sauce with olives.

Where can I try it? For group classes try F45 studios (f45training.co.uk); selected Virgin Active clubs (virginactive.co.uk) or Better Leisure (better. org.uk).

THE GOOD

guide S

It’s official: tents are the new B&Bs. So pack up your kit and go wild in the country!

leeping outdoors under canvas or, more precisely, polyester, has never been so cool or popular. A survey by Mintel found that a fifth of us have had a camping holiday in the last three years, while sales of tents and caravans have risen by 75 per cent in recent years*. ‘It’s a no-brainer,’ says camping fan Emily Murphy, 44, a mother of three. ‘Who can afford to stay in hotels or go abroad every year?’ Once the equipment has been bought, years of soaking up nature, eating outside and letting the kids run wild lie ahead.

Get the kit right

Did you experience cold and soggy tents in your childhood? Things have changed; tents now keep water out and warmth in! Take a disposable barbecue and cook fresh food while you sit on your comfy camping chairs, watching the sun set as you sip a cold glass of wine poured from a bottle in your cool box. Bliss! (Turn over to read about the perfect kit.)

Find your happy place

The very best camping sites get booked up months in advance, but with thousands in the UK, you’re bound to find one near you that’s just right. Plump for one with a bar, restaurant, pool and shop that will cater to your every whim, or go for a more wild experience where you’ll be surrounded by nature and free to explore the countryside.

JOHN FRIEDA VOLUME CORE RESTORE TREATMENT, £10 Angie I applied this to my freshly washed and towel-dried hair; it definitely seemed thicker once dry, even after one use. Charlotte This left my hair feeling slightly thicker but I think it was also drier and more brittle. I really didn’t like it. Sameera Although my hair felt thicker after using this, I think it was also quite dry.

TO P

ORGANIC SHOP SILK NECTAR SHINE SHAMPOO, £2.50 Angie This smelt lovely and left my hair looking so vibrant. Charlotte I didn’t feel this cleaned my hair as well as my usual shampoo does, but I really like the fact that it is organic. Sameera It didn’t lather as well as my normal shampoo does and, added to that, my hair felt slightly drier than normal. AUSSIE 3 MINUTE MIRACLE MOISTURE TREATMENT, £6 Angie This rinsed out really well and my hair was so lovely and squeaky clean after using it. Charlotte Even after rinsing this left a slight residue, so I needed to wash my hair more than usual. But I loved the smell it left. Sameera My hair felt immediately more moisturised. After rinsing, it was really smooth. SYOSS SALONPLEX HAIR RENAISSANCE LEAVE-IN SERUM, £3 Angie I applied this serum to towel-dried hair and it left it totally nourished, if a little on the greasy side. Charlotte I loved this! It’s better than some expensive products I’ve tried before. It’s going to become a staple in my hair routine. Sameera This was my favourite. I’ve never tried a leave-in serum before and didn’t expect much, but I saw results after a single use.

OUR PANEL Angie Allen, 51, from the Isle of Wight, uses a lightening spray in the summer. Her hair dries out quickly in the sun.

Charlotte Walker, 28, from Northampton, uses a deep conditioner on holiday to keep her hair soft.

Sameera Patel, 24, from London, washes and heat-styles her hair more in the summer to prevent frizz.
