Organic Vegetables in Exeter
The vegetables were ordered on Monday and delivered on time on Friday and they are just so fresh and wonderful! They certainly have a ‘just-picked’ freshness about them. In fact I couldn’t wait to get home and get cooking!! Joey ordered lots of purple sprouting broccoli and kale as well as mushrooms and carrots.
I have bought a one quarter crown prince squash (being modelled by Joey, left) as well as swede, potatoes, carrots, leeks, kale and sprouts. I have also got a bag of salad leaves.
Once you have tasted these salad leaves, you will never buy anything else. The bag is full of variety and bursting with taste!
You can order vegetable boxes, or you can choose what you want from the list of seasonal vegetables.
I will be having squash risotto tonight for dinner. I am looking forward to writing some recipes for kale as it its this time of year when it is in abundance and people get stuck with what to do with it, especially as it less common in the supermarkets. The purple sprouting broccoli is delicious – and much cheaper than in the supermarkets.
Low cost organic local vegetables, delivered fresh. They look marvellous and taste delicious!
The real delight of all these vegetables, is knowing they are fresh from the fields and have travelled about four miles in total. Compare that with produce which travels up and down the country and is stored in big warehouses before reaching the shops. Only the mushrooms and onions have come from further afield. And knowing where they all come from, means you can make an informed decision abour what you purchase. And the best thing of all, is of course that they taste so good!. Be warned, once you have tasted vegetables that are this delicious, you may find it difficult to shop in your supermarket for fresh vegetables eve again!
And these wonderful vegetables weren’t expensive. Many are cheaper than the supermarkets main produce and they are all much less costly than the supermarkets organic vegetables. And if you want to try to buy vegetables that are in season, you can rely on knowing that all the veg on offer isin season.This cauliflower looks amazing! I will be deciding which cauliflower recipes to cook. Cauliflower pilau, cauliflower cheese or cauliflower and blue cheese soup!
