It’s a very important week to pay attention because it’s been a while since we’ve had this bad weather across most of Australia. Our cherry growers & berry growers all the way from South Australia, to Tasmania, including Vic, which is where we are looking for berries & cherries, have all been smashed with some bad weather, so what that means is that there is going to be the odd berry that isn’t looking berry, berry good!
As for cherries, this is the time when they’re looking for their flowers to develop into beautiful plump cherries and given that we’ve had snow in Tasmania (which is a big producer) and they’ve had hail in South Australia, the other big producer, produce will be weather affected in the coming weeks and we may see a rough season for these guys. The bad weather also includes areas like the Forbes, that are growing peaches and nectarines, so that’s been halted a little by the flooding.
But the good news is, we still have yellow nectarines on a ticket! So, in stone fruit, yellow nectarines & white peaches are the pick of the bunch. Nectarines would be the go to for your lunch boxes this week at just 40 cents a pop – you can’t go past it!
In other grape news. Grapes are on the move down in price. Reds, the flame variety, will go down first followed by green. I’m not talking super cheap and a bargain, but they’re going down by 30% a week so keep watching.
If you’re looking for real bang for buck next week, it’s got to be melons. Watermelon, Yellow Candy Melon & Piel de Sapo. It’s the beginning of the melon season and all are excellent eating, so definitely get on those guys.
Apricots, they’re looking a little bit knocked out for the first pick, because they’ve also seen the bad weather but we are sorting through them to find the best eating varieties. At the moment. I believe that it’s a Wonder cot, (it’s called a Wonder cot because it’s mix between wonderful and apricot!)
The other good news is, if you’re thinking Sandy my mum’s going to make a pav for Christmas and I don’t have any passion fruit to pop all over it well, you can pop some passion in a couple of weeks because passion fruit are doing the traditional climb down the mountain. They shoot up in late October and early November and they climb down in December just in time for Sandy’s pav. So, keep your eyes on those, they’ve come down from $3 a pop to $2.
In veg, Sugar snaps, cauliflower, broccoli, zucchinis, cucumbers and Asparagus have all been smacked about by the weather so forget about half the vegetables in the world! It’s time to not flick the bean because Flat beans are probably the prize vegetable this week along with cherry tomatoes, avocados , Iceberg lettuce, Kale & some Asian veg which is recovering strong.
I’m thinking might get creative with the salads next week – ditch the stodgy veg lines, except for sweet potato as they’re on a super sweet ticket!
Now are you thinking what am I going to bloody do with my beans? Well, flat beans I think are probably the best bean going around. They’re flat. They’re easy to cook. I just like to chop them up in two inch pieces. Sear them off, a little bit of garlic, literally salt, pepper, a little bit of olive oil and a dash of white wine vinegar at the end and you don’t need anything else. They’re just super tender & delicious.
If you did want something else, toss in some finely shredded kale and maybe some parmesan and some pecans for a flat bean, parmesan and kale salad, maybe a slice of avocado (because it’s cheap) on top! Too easy.
