cauliflowers, chestnuts & casseroles

Compact Caulis: With the weather cooling down, cauliflowers are looking beautiful with tightly furled florets, whether white, purple or green. Pull out trusted winter recipes or try new techniques like blitzing into grains to cook like couscous.  Pick up caulis from the Farandas at Elwood and Collingwood.

Roasted Chestnuts: Chestnuts are in season and Catkin Grove will be at Collingwood selling their George Sands and possibly some April Gold varieties.  Pick up a bag, either freshly roasted (with no additives) or raw in the shell to cook at home.
Braising beef: Boundary Road Beef will be at Elwood on Saturday with their grass-fed beef - they’ve had enough rainfall to maintain grass this season.  Their popular diced beef packs include both blade and chuck and come highly recommended by John the farmer for braising in pies or casseroles.
