Chard hearts

Chard hearts

Phil Allen just emailed me a couple of days ago with this colourful photo chard hearts which he delivered to the Creamery last week. They are great for adding colour to any dish this time of the year. Our chef Martin has used most of the Redbor kale, which also adds colour to the plate – I saw it being used in delicious salads during my weekly visit to Daylesford this morning ! Phil is currently trying to force (encourage it to grow earlier in the season) more Chard in the poly tunnel.

Whilst Seville oranges are still in season & honey gives you a seasonal immune system boost, why not follow this ‘Apley Walled Garden carrots with orange & honey glaze’ – it’s a very simple & scrummy way of enjoying winter veg until 2015’s salad crops are ready.

There are lots of reasons why honey is good for us, including building up our immune systems:

“It contains natural antioxidant properties that can destroy biologically destructive chemical agents which have been linked to many diseases such as cancer. Not only could honey’s antioxodants help to eliminate free radicals in the body, they are also part of the nutrient supply for growth of new tissue. Because of this, for centuries, honey has been used all over the world in different cultures as a natural cure for many ailments, and traditionally as an effective home remedy , for instance the honey & apple cider vinegar tonic which is used for treating arthritis.“¹
