It's nearly upon us so here is a brief reminder of the box menu for next week.  Don't forget your boxes will be arriving a day early this week owing to the holiday, so if you need to add anything please ring us at least the day before.

We were hoping for sprout stalks as in our experience they keep better, but they were in very short supply owing to difficult growing conditions, so these will be loose.

A’s and G’s

  • Potatoes 1400g – Maris Piper, a great roaster
  • Onions 500g
  • Carrots 600g
  • Parsnips 600g
  • A portion of Red Cabbage – follow this link for Delia’s recipeRed Cabbage  id=
  • Leeks 700gOrganic Sprouts  id=
  • Sprouts (approx 400g)

Additional extras (probably) as follows
B’s Tomatoes 5600g
D’s Potatoes 700g and a Lettuce
E’s Tomatoes, Cucumber and a Red Pepper
L’s and M’s – as above but also Tomatoes and Green Pepper

Delia has a couple of suggestions as to how to get the most from your red cabbage – here’s her fairly traditional recipe for Braised Red Cabbage with Apples

And here is another with a great festive feel – Spiced Sautéed Red Cabbage with Cranberries which is rather quicker to prepare and keeps a little crunch in the cabbage.


( No fruit box recipe available at the time of posting - I'll edit it in later)

One final reminder that there will be no delivery between Christmas and New Year but we'll be back to normal the first week in January.  There will be some organic produce delivered to the shop between Christmas and New Year, however, so do pop into the shop if you need a top up.
