Our Autumn update!
Local apples are in abundance at this time of year with varieties such as Cox, Gala & Russet all available. Our favourites in the office are the local Spartans, which are bright red and exceptionally crunchy… just how an apple should be.
Baby & globe artichokes are sadly coming to an end, but jerusalem artichokes will be in very soon. Check out this recipe for Jerusalem Artichoke Soup from one of our customers, Andy Mack – it’s a real crowd-pleaser!
Root vegetables are also at their best… Beetroot, swede and turnip in particular! We love the Candy & Golden beetroot, which are lovely and vibrant. Squashes & pumpkins are also in season and we have several varieties available.
When it comes to greens, the list goes on and on… Brussels Sprouts, Cavalo Nero, Kale & Kohl Rabi are great at this time of year or you can always bring a bit more colour at meal times with Rainbow Chard (greens don’t just have to be green!).
Kentish cobnuts have now come to an end, but soon we will start seeing chestnuts, hazelnuts & walnuts instead.
Our Deli also has a very special seasonal cheese, which is available in the winter months. Its name is Vacherin Mont D’or and the milk comes from cows that have spent the whole summer grazing in the mountains. Make sure to check it out… We have both cutting Vacherin and small wheels for baking!
Finally, we’re also approaching game season in our butchery. We have a steady supply of venison and will be seeing pheasants arrive in the middle of October. Look out also for free range duck, partridge & pigeon!
