We have some lovely sage to cut this week -
if you would like to have some in your box, let me know. It adds great flavour to recipes such as Cumberland sausage and roasted butternut squash as well as traditional sage and onion stuffing.
The Concorde pears are ready now and as usual we have some spotty ones for juicing and cooking: Bonus Juicing Pears £1 per kg. Discovery, Red Devil and Red Windsor apples are all available this week.
