The cold weather is finally here. After weeks of autumn splendour, the skies turn grey, days are short and the air is brisk. Winter food should warm our tummies and comfort our souls. With an array of gorgeous winter produce we should never be short of ideas. Over the next few months, the following will be in season, perfect for autumn fare: Fruit
|Cabbage||Onions||Sweet potato (kumara)|
Most of us look for hot meals during winter, rather than salad-based meals, which is why winter veggies are perfect. Roast them, bake them, stir-fry them or make them into a yummy, warming soup. Don’t forget to add them to your slow-cooker meals.
For a winter dessert designed to put a smile on your face, try baked apples, poached pears and stewed rhubarb. Or maybe an old-fashioned apple pie is more your thing. And to help you ward off coughs and colds, get you dose of vitamin C with a serve of citrus fruit at breakfast. Who said winter food had to be boring?
