With regards to the fruit please make sure you look our for: apples, some berries, figs, grape fruit, kiwi fruit, lemons, mandarins, melons, watermelon, nectarines, pears, persimmons, plums, quinces, and last but not least strawberries.
Just writing about all of these fruits makes me salivate at the thought of biting into them! Yummy, yummy yummy. Takes me back to good times of my childhood eating fruit and getting sticky with the juices.
However, I have to remind you of the vegetables that make my mouth water just thinking about them as well. There is asparagus, beans, beetroot, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, Lebanese cucumbers, eggplant, leeks, potatoes, pumpkin, silver beat, spinach, onions, sweet corn, tomatoes, turnips and zucchini.
Think of the wonderful soups and roasts that you can do with all of this wonderful produce.
Now when I mention potatoes I don’t want you to think of what you buy in the supermarket. I don’t often mention a grower but in this case I’m going to make an exception. They are called Highland gourmet potatoes and they have over 30 different potato varieties. You can find them at the Eveleigh Farmers Market. They have potatoes that I had never heard of. There is one called a Cranberry Red. It has a red skin with pink flesh. It’s great for making scallops and particularly mash as it is a beautiful colour when put on a plate, especially if you have friends coming for dinner and you want to quietly impress them. The Sapphire is a purple potato and it stays that colour and is great for mash and thin fries. Go and have a look. You won’t be disappointed.
