Savour the juicy summer goodness of low calorie, fat-free peaches and nectarines jam-packed with vitamins and minerals.
This is the best time to enjoy peaches and nectarines, classic signs of summer. Closely related, the two sweet and juicy stone fruit have flesh that range from yellow to white (the white is sweeter and less acidic). They contain a good amount of beta-carotene, which supports healthy eyes, prevents macular degeneration, and enables your body to produce vitamin A. Vitamin A deficiency can lead to abnormal bone development. Both are also a source of vitamins C, lutein (an antioxidant that can reduce your risk of chronic diseases such as cancer), potassium and iron.
Little needs to be done to enhance the pleasure of biting into a perfectly ripe and beautifully aromatic peach or nectarine. But they are also fabulous tossed into salads, baked in galettes, pies and cakes, paired with ice cream, pureed and mixed into cocktails or even oven roasted and served with duck or pork.
Look for fresh ripe fruit with deep aroma that yield to gentle pressure. They should not be excessively soft nor should they have obvious bruises or cuts. They can be stored a room temperature until they soften, at which point they should be refrigerated and consumed within several days.
Organic peaches and nectarines are available at SuperNature Forum.
With an earthy, sweet flavour and long tuberous root, it comes as no surprise that the parsnip is closely related to the carrot. This fleshy tuber is chock-full of vitamins, essential minerals and dietary fibre.
A sweet alternative to the regular Russet or Yukon gold, this humble root lends itself to a plethora of different cooking methods. Great as a casserole dish or simply steamed, this spud is no dud when it comes to health-boosting benefits.
Chilli is also known as chilli peppers. The substances that give chilli their intensity when ingested or applied topically are capsaicin and several related chemicals, collectively called capsaicinoids.
An apple cucumber gets its name because of its resemblance to a green apple. It has a crispy, juicy flesh, very sweet taste, and can be eaten without peeling the skin off. After it ripens, it develops soft prickles or spines that are white.
Black Knight carrots are readily distinguishable by their ink stained skin with variegations of orange and ivory blushing through from the root's core. The flesh's colour is a contrasting warm yellow.
Higher in beta carotene, and vitamins C and A than its green counterpart, red oak lettuce also provides a good proportion of fibre, folate and minerals. Enjoy this attractive, frilly leaf in salads, sandwiches and side dishes.
