Australia’s love of sweet, healthy low kilojoule blueberries continues to grow. In 2019 over 17,000 tonnes of fresh blueberries were grown in Australia. Harvesting of new season ultra-healthy blueberries is underway, and your local greengrocer will have blueberries available
Tangelos have a tangy flavour and a fragrant aroma. Use their juice and flesh in recipes as an alternative to oranges in winter. Team tangelos segments with baby spinach leaves and walnuts in a salad. They’re bursting with beneficial vitamin C.
Navel oranges are in peak supply in winter. We also highly recommend trying the attractive and juicy Cara Cara navels. This seedless, sweet pinkish orange-fleshed variety originated in South America is available June to August.
Cauliflower stars in the kitchen during cooler weather. This adaptable vegetable is delicious roasted, braised, fried, mashed and steamed or eaten raw. Adding cauliflower to a winter classic, boosts the nutritional value and warms you up.
Celeriac is a delicious, creamy-fleshed winter vegetable that tastes like celery. Select pale, small-sized celeriac that feels heavy for its size. To prepare celeriac, peel and cut into pieces then drop into a bowl of cold water. Add some lemon juice to prevent the flesh discolouring.
Silverbeet sometimes mistakenly named spinach is distinguishable by its fleshly white stems and dark green leaves. Wilt silverbeet in a pan over medium heat and toss with crumbled feta, toasted pine nuts and a drizzle of olive oil.
Broccoli is flourishing in the cooler weather. Steaming and stir-frying are ideal methods for cooking broccoli. If boiling, be sure to use small quantities of water and cook rapidly as overcooking reduces flavour and vitamin content. Spicy broccoli & chilli soup is a delicious choice in winter
With a sweet, unique flavour, parsnips are a delicious alternative to potatoes. Try them roasted, mashed, as wedges or fried crisps. Peel and halve parsnips lengthways, toss in olive oil, garlic and a drizzle of maple syrup then roast until tender and golden.
