Spring and Summer Flavours
It’s official – the warmer weather has finally arrived! Now is the perfect time to restock your kitchen with seasonal ingredients and fresh flavours that reflect the change in season.
Eating seasonally also has loads of additional benefits by providing more flavour, variety, health benefits and cost efficiency. When produce is in season locally, you can enjoy top-quality fruit and vegetables that have been grown locally. Without transportation and extended storage, your produce deliveries will taste even better.

Here are some delicious spring and summer produce to add to your Produce to Plate orders now that the warm weather is upon us…
Deliciously sweet and juicy, Australian peaches (yellow and white) are an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, minerals, antioxidants and dietary fibre. They can be eaten raw, added to salads or made into desserts.

Australian nectarines may look similar to peaches but can be recognised by their lack of fuzz! They are a juicy fruit which may be used to accentuate the flavour and health factor of many dishes.

Produce to Plate mangoes are high in energy, low in fat, and are a great source of calcium and vitamins, which are essential for good health. Enjoy as a healthy snack on their own, pureed in desserts, processed in dressings, thrown on the barbeque, and even added into your spring smoothies and cocktails.
