Despite the weather cooling down, autumn ushers in a huge variety of fresh produce, so why not try a new fruit and vegetable in your shopping trolley each week? At V & R Fruits we pride ourselves on stocking the freshest in-season fruits and vegetables Geelong.
Apples: not just a handy snack for you and kids lunchbox. Granny smith apples are perfect for baking, and what could be more delicious than a freshly baked apple pie with a dollop of our divine Gundowring ice cream on top! Don’t forget to visit our gourmet deli in Geelong to peruse our great selection of yogurts, ice creams, creams and other sweet treats.
Pears: this soft, juicy fruit is high in fibre and a great source of vitamin C and potassium and antioxidants. For a delightful meal to enjoy with friends, add some pear to a salad with Milawa blue cheese, walnuts and fresh rocket.
Eggplant: a vegetable that is extremely versatile! Eggplant can be baked, stir fried, grilled or used as a dip. When picking your eggplant, make sure it is firm with a shiny skin and green stalk.
Carrots: Did you know that carrots are the second most popular vegetable in the world? With their healthy properties it is no wonder – you can get over twice your recommended daily intake of vitamin A in just half a carrot! They are the perfect vegetable to introduce into many meals if you need to increase the vegetable content of your children’s diet. Grated or diced carrot can be added to a bolognaise sauce, curry or stew.
