Red Delicious Apples make for some tasty eating and well-priced. Pink Lady, Jazz and Fuji Apples are well priced. Granny Smith apples are a favourite for cooking

A fantastic price at Fred’s One Stop this week are Hass Avocados that are in peak season during winter
There is a good supply of locally grown ruby-red Rhubarb in store. Pile chopped Rhubarb, grated Ginger and chopped Granny Smith apples into a pre-baked pastry case, sprinkle with brown sugar and bake in a hot oven until the Rhubarb is tender. YUMMO!

Winter is a splendid ideal time to add woody herbs to the evening meal. Their leaves infuse meals with flavour. Try adding Rosemary, Oregano, Sage and Marjoram to soups, casseroles and roasts. Alternatively, toss a mix of herbs through roasted veggies
Broccoli is flourishing in the cooler weather and is best eaten steamed to minimise the loss of essential minerals and vitamins
Field-grown Tomatoes from Queensland are well priced
Carrots are in abundance during winter. Carrots are delicious when roasted, used in chunky veggie soups and curries or when added to rissoles and meatloaf for sweetness
Quick to cook and easy to prepare, machine harvested green beans are well priced this week
Sweet Potato also known as Kumara makes an appetising low GI mash. Serve roasted spare ribs, lamb shanks, sausages or grilled chicken on a bed of mashed Kumara
