A Better Choice For Freshness

‘A better choice!’ Weekly Produce Report: 12 May 2023

Spoil Mum this weekend with homemade delights made with fresh produce from your local fruit and veg shop! From delicious brekkies to warm comforting meals, Mother’s Day is the perfect time to let Mum put her feet up and enjoy a relaxing day with loved ones. As the weather brings a cold snap, we’re loving all things warming and cosy this week, so be sure to shop ahead and plan out your meals for the week this weekend. 

Our pick of the week this week is Butternut Pumpkin which is in great supply and is an amazing Autumn flavour. The nutty and creamy flavours of pumpkin make a delicious addition to most meals including roasts, curries, soups, baked dishes and even sweets! One of our favourite ways to enjoy Pumpkin is a simple Pumpkin Frittata. Try this recipe out this week and enjoy some Aussie Butternut Pumpkin. 

Get your hands on some Citrus this week with plenty on offer of great quality. Look for deliciously juicy Arfourer Mandarins for a great snack, Lemons and Limes perfect for taco night this week. Make this Mandarin & Ginger Tart this week for a delicious hit of citrus! 

Persimmons are in great supply this week. This unique Autumnal fruit is an absolute treat with a deliciously sweet flavour and soft, juicy texture. Make the most of Persimmons by eating fresh, or add them to salads or your morning cereal. 

There’s no better time to enjoy fresh new-season Apples than Autumn. There is a wide selection available now at your local fruit and veg shop. Enjoy apples in all their seasonal glory with this recipe for Whole Roasted Apples!

Pomegranate is in season now, and eating beautifully. This delicious fruit provides a unique flavour with a strong, bright flavour that can really enhance a dish. While it can be intimidating to peel pomegranates, once you’ve got the arils out it’s well worth the effort. Top your favourite salads with Pomegranate, or add to your next homemade acai bowl. 

Feeling fancy this week? Pick up some Fennel and use every last bit, from bulb to frond, to flavour and garnish your meals. Fennel is a great accompaniment to fish, chicken and pork with a unique flavour reminiscent of aniseed. Try this recipe for a delicious Salmon & Fennel Tray Bake

Cauliflower is an absolute winner when it comes to versatility. Cauliflower can be used in so many ways, from a simple roast, to a creamy soup, or even as a substitute for rice! Cauliflower is also a great way to bulk up any meals with some added nutrients. We love to whip up these Cauliflower Pasties for a delicious snack with Cauliflower. Pick up a head of Cauliflower at your local fruit and veg shop this week. +

Brussels Sprouts are a highly underrated vegetable. Long gone are the days of over-cooked rubbery Sprouts. The magic secret to cooking perfect sprouts even the kids will love is to add direct heat! Whether it’s from a char on the grill or helped along by a hot oven roast, Brussels Sprouts really come alive with just a little effort. One way we love to enjoy Brussels Sprouts is this showstopping Brussels Sprouts & Blue Cheese Pizza

Potatoes are abundant and of great value. No matter how you enjoy your potatoes best, they’re an easy win in everyone’s book. If you’re in the mood to try something different, why not make this Okra & Potato Curry for a unique dish to help warm the belly and the soul this week!

Your local Fruit and Veg shop hand select their produce from local Growers and Wholesalers at the central markets to bring you the best quality available! Pick up some of this produce and more from your local Fruit and Veg shop this week!
