What's in season?Carrots

Carrots

Although carrots are available throughout the year, locally grown carrots in this season are the freshest and most flavourful.  While we usually associate carrots with the colour orange, carrots can actually be found in other colors including yellow, red, or purple. Did you know that purple, yellow and red carrots were the only color varieties of carrots to be cultivated before the 15th or 16th century? 

Grilling veggies

Salad tipGrilling veggies

Use skewers or a grill basket to prevent small chunks of vegetables from falling through the grate. Remember to soak bamboo skewers for 30 or more minutes before using to prevent them from burning.
