Winter Pineapples can appear a little greener than usual in regards to their skin colouring (a trait brought about by the fruit being exposed to the shorter hours of Winter sunshine) however, each Pineapple is picked when it reaches a specific sugar level hence, you can be sure that they are sweet yet tangy by the time they arrive at the markets

Brussels sprouts make an ideal choice for all-round nutrition, supplying dietary fibre, potassium and a range of vitamins (A, C, E and four of the B complex vitamins). Cut Brussels Sprouts in half, drizzle with Olive Oil and roast in the oven where they take on a sweet, nutty flavour. You will be surprised by how many Brussels Sprouts you can eat when cooked this way! 

Fennel is top value. Try pan-frying slices of Fennel in oil and Garlic until tender. Did you know that cooking Fennel makes it tasty and sweet eating? Toss through cooked Spaghetti with chopped Fennel leaves and toasted Pine Nuts with Grape Tomatoes
