Spring is finally here this week and with the promise of warmer weather comes the promise of new fruit and vegetable varieties coming in season and straight from the farm to the shelves of your local Fruit and Veg shop.
Our pick of the week is juicy and vibrant Corn. The sweet flavour of Corn is a delightful addition to your meals this week. Corn is a most satisfying vegetable snack ideal for picnics or school lunches as well as a side dish for barbeques. Make Corn the star of the table this week with our Mexican Corn Salad.
Juicy and sweet Pineapple is in season, and is a delicious snack that gives us a taste of the warmer weather to come! Blend into a smoothie or juicy for a zesty morning pick-me-up, or add cubed Pineapple to your favourite stir-fry this week!
Strawberries are in excellent supply this week and taste amazingly sweet. Strawberries taste perfect fresh as they are, and are great in baked goods, too like these Strawberry Muffins, which are a great way to use up your Strawberries if you’ve accidentally bought more than you can eat in a sitting!
Grapefruit is a lovely citrus that has a sweet flavour that compliments a light and refreshing salad or can be added to juices or cocktails for a burst of flavour.
Kensington Pride Mangoes are on the shelves of your local Fruit and Veg shop this week, packed with the sweet flavour we all know and love. Eat fresh for a healthy snack or top with ice cream or yoghurt for a light evening treat.
Launching into spring means green vegetables are in good supply with a wide variety available. Pick up some Snow Peas this week at your local Fruit and Veg shop, and liven up the dinner table.
Baby Broccoli is in good supply and of excellent quality. Baby Broccoli makes for a great side dish, simply char and season well to enhance the flavour. Broccoli is also in good supply and similarly makes for a great side dish to compliment dinner.
Be sure to pick up some Zucchini this week. Zucchini has a neutral flavour that can suit a variety of flavours and cuisines. Enjoy Zucchini roasted and added to salads, or sliced up into a Spring-time Frittata with your favourite vegetables and herbs.
Green Beans have come back in price this week, and are a great option to add to your weekly shop. Simply prepare with Garlic and seasoning and serve with steak or fish!
Your local Fruit and Veg shop hand selects their produce from local Growers and Wholesalers to bring you the best quality available! Pick up some of this produce and more from your local Fruit and Veg shop this week!
