A Better Choice For Freshness

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so now is the perfect time to plan ahead for Mum’s special day. Take some time to cook Mum a delicious meal with fresh autumn fruit and vegetables and celebrate her! As it cools down, it’s a great time to make your favourite comfort food and relish in the last of the beautiful weather. 

Our pick of the week this week is Kiwifruit. Kiwifruit is in great supply and the quality is great this week with a variety of both Green and Gold Kiwifruit available at your local fruit and veg shop. Kiwifruit is an excellent source of Vitamin C, fibre and antioxidants and is great to add to your cereal, toast or salads for a boost of flavour and nutrients. Try our Kiwi and Coconut Parfait this week!

You will find a wide range available in both lines, perfect for lunchboxes, or to stew and whip up into pies, crumbles or simply enjoyed with icecream!

Pick up some Quince this week and enjoy the subtle vanilla flavours and try something new. To select a good Quince, look for fruit that is solid and free from any signs of bruising.

Green Beans are great value this week and are a great source of vitamins A, C, and K. This Green Bean, Fig & Feta Salad is a winner for Autumn and is a great way to try out green beans. We also love them cooked and tossed in olive oil, garlic and salt for a delicious and simple side dish.  

Leeks are a great option in Autumn and are a great substitute for onions for a more subtle flavour. Leeks can be prepared in roasts, pasta dishes, salads or soups. For a no-fuss dinner, try this Mushroom & Lvvveek Tart
