Parsnips

Parsnips

While they look like white carrots, parsnips have a characteristic flavour all of their own. They’re excellent for mashing or roasting, which brings out that distinctive parsnip nuttiness.  read more »

Why Seasonal Food?

Sure, most produce is available all year round, but out of season it’s expensive and never at its best. All those hours on a plane take their toll on imported produce, and even those that are grown and ripened in a greenhouse are never quite as how nature intended.

We reckon that the way to really enjoy healthy fruit and vegetables, and save yourself some cash, is to get them while they’re plentiful and bursting with flavour.

You’ll never get that out of season, and choosing what’s fresh is the way to turn plain old fruit and vegetables into a seasonal treat, to be looked forward to every year and savoured.

What’s Fresh is your guide to eating produce in season. Here you can find out what’s in season, what’s not, and just what the heck to do with those fruits and veges when you’ve bought them.

To get the freshest and tastiest fruit and vegetables, you need to look for what’s fresh.
