Seasonal local veg – and a quince – in this week’s boxes

October 11, 2012

In contrast to this year’s poor harvest of apples, we’ve had a good crop of quinces – so there’s one for you all to try this week.

You can’t eat them raw and they’re the devil to peel, but a bit of quince is the best flavouring for apple or pear pies and tarts. And they’re good in savoury dishes too – add a few peeled pieces to almost any stew for extra flavour.

To prepare, wash off the grey down first. As you remove the peel and core, drop the pieces in water with a squeeze of lemon juice to stop them discolouring.

As well as a * quince, everyone will be getting:
* onions (Camel CSA)
* french beans (Camel CSA)
* peppers (Camel CSA)
* cabbage (Camel CSA)
* sweetcorn (Camel CSA)
* spinach/chard (Camel CSA)
potatoes (Burlerrow Farm, St Mabyn)

Standard boxes will have extra potatoes plus:
* salad leaves (Camel CSA)
* carrots (Camel CSA)
* tomatoes (Camel CSA)

* = grown to organic principles
