Parsley, Organic The delicious and vibrant taste and wonderful healing properties of parsley are often ignored because people only see it as a garnish! It is the world's most popular herb and derives its name from the Greek word meaning "rock celery" (parsley is a relative to celery). Try this: pan fry diced garlic with olive oil on medium heat, add at least one whole bunch of chopped parsley, turn heat off, let parsley wilt for a minute, add zest and juice from one lemon, add more olive oil and salt and pepper, toss in your favourite cooked pasta (I love Nature's Farm spelt macaroni or linguine) and toss all together. Add toasted pine nuts and grated Parm as garnish! Store your parsley in a plastic bag in the fridge. Swiss Chard, Spray Free   A great source of phytonutrients, Chard is a versatile green. It's easy to sauté with garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil (just until it wilts) or it's great chopped in a salad. Wash your Chard, spin dry, wrap it in a clean towel in a plastic bag in the crisper. If it starts to wilt trim the bottom of the stems, soak in cool water for 30 minutes, pat dry and wrap in a clean cotton towel - then put back in the fridge. Celery, Organic Whether chopped into a salad, cut into snacky-sticks or added to soup or stew, celery is a kitchen staple. Want to feel like a kid again? Smear it with some natural peanut butter and sprinkle with raisins for an afternoon kick. Loosely cover with plastic and store in your crisper. Sweet Peppers, Organic or Spray Free Great fresh in salads or cut off the tops, hollow out the seeds, rub with olive oil and stuff them with whatever you have in the fridge. Roast in the oven or on the bbq at 350 for 20 minutes! Store your peppers in the crisper. Red Sparkle Apples, Spray Free Some of the tastiest eating apples around! Eat them fresh OR you'll have just enough to make this week's recipe: Spiced Apple & Pumpkin Crumble! Carrots, Organic Try this amazing Fall soup recipe: Roasted Carrot & Cumin Soup with Carrot Top Pesto. We promise you won't be disappointed! Store your carrots in their bag in the crisper. Watermelon, Spray Free Thought you couldn't get sweet, juicy watermelon into September? Wrong! Our Manitoba watermelon is just the thing to remind you of Summer bbq's, but still satisfy that sweet craving! Store in a cool, dry place, the fridge if you can. Purple Potatoes, Organic We've got your potatoes for Thanksgiving covered - and why not add a splash of colour to your table with these purple gems? Try them mashed with roasted garlic. Store your potatoes in a cool, dry place - do not store them with apples or other fruit as it will cause them to sprout. Sugar (Pie) Pumpkin, Spray Free This variety has a lower water content than the typical carving pumpkin, so you get a dense, creamy filling! Go ahead and make pie for Thanksgiving, or you could just pick up a pre-made one from the store and make yourself a tasty Spiced Apple & Pumpkin Crumble and not share it with your family and friends. That's what I'd do. Crampton Made Apple Cider, 1L We take beautiful Manitoba apples and press them into the tastiest, purest apple cider you'll ever have! Drink it with breakfast, spice it and heat it up, use it in your favourite cocktail. You will love it. Gourmet Inspirations, Fresh Strawberry Balsamic with Basil The combinations of fresh flavours contained in this tangy and sweet sauce will add a tantalizing twist to any pork or poultry. Serving suggestions include; Topping on grilled pork tenderloin, roasted chicken breast, pan seared or baked pork chop. Learn more HERE.
