During winter you can say hello to the juiciest and sweetest citrus fruits, from lemons, limes, mandarin, oranges, and grapefruit – full of vitamin C just in time to help you fight the cold and flu season. Did you know vitamin c also helps with the absorption of iron – so pair it with iron rich foods. We like to use the juice and zest of citrus fruits to add freshness to rich dishes, add to marinades or mix with some good-quality extra virgin olive oil for a simple dressing.
Celery thrives with constant watering so it makes sense that winter is therefore the ideal season to grow it.
Celery, carrot and onion sautéed in butter or oil, until soft or until deep brown is known as sofrito – it adds depth to dishes like slow cooks, soup, stews and bolognese’s which coincidentally we love during the winter.
It also can be eaten raw, like in this Celery salad with dates, parmesan and crunchy roasted almonds – perfect for when your craving a fresh salad but cucumber, tomatoes and typical salad ingredients aren’t in season.
