What’s NEW This Week?
Nudgel Nuts is back with new season macadamias. Ian said that he only has a limited range as he is very busy harvesting and processing enough to return this week. Those of us who love new season macas a very happy with whatever he brings.The beauty in eating seasonally is the joy we experience when a favourite returns.
There is an abundance of beautiful juicy corn – so delicious barbecued in its own leafy wrapper then rolled in butter and enjoyed straight from the cob. The kernels off the cob are also delicious and so versatile adding flavour and texture to a wide variety of dishes. Perhaps it is salsa week this week!
Cooking the kernels very briefly intensifies the flavour so for your salsa cut the kernels of your barbecued corn OR cook your cob on a griddle until heated
through. Once cooled remove the kernels and in your bowl add chopped coriander, tomatoes, spring onions, a little finely diced chilli. A squeeze of lime and some Grumpy Grandma’s olive oil (from Rob at Spice Palace) season to taste and ENJOY!
TIP: Eat your corn on the day you purchase it for the best flavour as corn lose its flavour the longer it is stored.
