Welcome to Winter! Your local fruit and veg shop is a great place to see the change in seasonal produce with an influx of delicious produce that continues to change as the season continues. Head in-store this week and get creative with winter produce.
Our pick of the week is avocado. Creamy and versatile, avocados take centre stage this season. Enjoy them sliced on toast with a sprinkle of sea salt, or whip up a zesty Avocado Lime Salad Dressing to drizzle over your favourite greens or whip up these Avocado Dark Choc Truffles.
Celebrate the sweet and easy-to-peel mandarins that grace the shelves this season. Pack them in lunchboxes, enjoy them as a quick snack, or transform them into a Mandarin Daiquiri for a burst of citrusy goodness.
Apples are in great supply with a wide variety available this week. With their crisp texture and sweet-tart flavour, apples are a winter favourite. Enjoy them fresh, slice them into salads, or bake them into a comforting Apple Crumble that will warm your soul.
Delicious and juicy pears make a delightful addition to your culinary repertoire this week. Slice them into a refreshing salad or add them to this warming Sausage and Pear Bake for a hint of sweetness for your dinner.

Mild and flavorful, leeks add a delicate touch to your savoury dishes. Sauté them with garlic and toss them into a creamy Potato Leek & Bacon Soup or use them as a savoury filling for your homemade pies or quiches.
