Veg Box | Thai Salad with Noodles

Both our £25 and £15 boxes this week have all the fresh ingredients included to make our delicious and fresh tasting Thai Noodle Salad. We have included all the fresh ingredients and the noodles, you will just need to add oil, sesame oil, soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce. This is definitely a recipe you will keep going back to.

Lots of fruit items again this week, with this glorious weather we are having we know you like to keep things light. Everyone has been loving the Clementine Novas so they are in both in the boxes along with apricots and peaches.

The £25 box includes cantaloupe melon again, but a different variety. Jacobo cantaloupe, a relative newcomer. Grown for sweetness and flavour. Looks very similar but with a darker more textured skin.

British Blueberries

Some items may change to bring you what’s best on the day.

British Blueberries

British blueberry season has now started. A relatively new crop grown in the UK. It didn’t really start until 2008 and we are now producing 10 times more that we were 14 years ago. Blueberries were the original superfood. They have a relatively short season, about 6 weeks. They are packed with antioxidants and are perfect for packed lunches as they travel really well. They are one of the best berries to freeze as they don’t deteriorate when defrosted. You can add an extra punnet or add to your £15 box for £2.50.

English Cherries

This week we have more English Cherries from Kent (the garden of England). They have a short season of just a few weeks from June to July, so blink and you’ll miss them. As well as being a good source of fibre, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, copper and iron, this small fruit contains soluble fibre that can help lower cholesterol and research has shown, people who eat more potassium- containing foods like cherries, tend to be less likely to have high blood pressure. Did you know cherries also contain melatonin, a hormone found naturally in the body, which regulates sleep. But best of all, they taste delicious. I think profits must definitely be down in the shop when English cherries arrive, we can’t walk past them without taking one or two. Red lips and fingers are a definite give away!!! 330g for £3.00

Cheese of the week – Kick-Ass Cheddar Cheese

At a recent food fair we tasted this amazing cheese and knew we had to share it with you. Kick-Ass cheese is the creation of husband and wife partnership Tim & Sue Procter. The Kick-Ass brand is part of Procter’s Cheeses based in the picturesque village of Chipping, Lancashire. The name Kick-Ass cheese came to be when Time and Sue were selling cheese at a farmer’s market in West Lancashire. A regular customer who loved Tim’s mature cheddar, came to the stall and asked for some of “that Kick-ass cheese”!! From that brief exchange the idea was born. The Procter family have been making cheese in Lancashire for over 80 years.

The week we have their full flavoured extra mature Cheddar with a gritty, crunch and a rich pronounced flavour. The texture is smooth and buttery, serve at room temperature. Coated in black wax. £4.50
