This week’s potato is the locally grown ‘Sante’; its slightly floury texture makes it particularly good for roasting, mashing and baking. The Jerusalem artichokes are the leeks in the larger boxes are local too, and the tomatoes and broccoli are from Spain. The season for squash is finishing now and although we managed to find a few home grown squash for the UK produce boxes but most of this week’s batch are Dutch. In the fruit boxes the English apples are ‘Fiesta’. The Walnuts are from the Grenoble region of France; ‘Noix de Grenoble’ are reputed to be the finest in the country.
Provencal Jerusalem Artichokes
Good warm as an accompaniment, but better eaten at room temperature; a tasty lunch dish with a tomato salad, bread and cheese.

Not organic unfortunately, but a seasonal treat worth celebrating nonetheless. We often have it in two grades. Class 2 is thin but excellent for preserving. Don’t forget the Seville oranges too. On the subject of preserving we’re soon to be stocking a range of equipment for jam making and preserving ... more details to follow.
