Delicious Autumn Produce To Add To Your Green Bag
A change of season means more than just a reason to mix up your wardrobe to suit the weather conditions – new seasons also bring delicious produce that’s perfect for adding to the dinner menu.
Your green bag is the perfect environmentally friendly way to transport these Autumn produce goodies home:
The sweet pink flesh of a perfect watermelon is irresistible to kids and adults alike. They’re a great source of Vitamin C and antioxidant-rich lycopene, so this juicy fruit isn’t only tasty – it’s good for you, too.
Due to the large size and heavy weight of a watermelon, place it in the base of your green bag to avoid squashing other fruit and veges. It’s lucky your produce bag is durable and strong!
Pears are the perfect lunchbox snack, and are also a versatile and delicious cooking fruit. Use them in a salad or as a complement to delicious cheese varieties, or poach with sugar, lemon and vanilla bean for a tasty after dinner treat.
These smooth-skinned beauties pack a punch in flavour and health benefits. They’re filled with potassium and magnesium, plus Vitamins A and C. Whether you like nectarines firm and tart or soft and juicy, they’re always a gorgeous autumn treat.
Lemons are a plentiful autumn produce choice, and they’re an extremely versatile fruit. Squeeze them over crumbed fresh fish fillets, bake a lemon meringue pie or lemon loaf with them, or simply enjoy a Sunday breakfast of pancakes with lemon and sugar.
As the only vegetable on our list, kale makes a name for itself as a known superfood. This leafy green is a source of calcium, iron, folate and plenty of other vitamins. Use as the base for a salad or make healthy kale “chips” with a little olive oil and sea salt in the oven.
