Mandarins are smaller and sweeter than oranges, and contain more juice. They’re a very good source of vitamins C and A, a good source of dietary fibre, and are low in calories and fat. They are easier to peel and have less pith. So, they’re perfect for eating out of hand. They’re equally delicious peeled and tossed into salads, or simply juiced (drinking mandarin juice regularly has been found to reduce the risk of liver cancer in people suffering from chronic viral hepatitis). While you’re most likely to find classic candied mandarins served at Lunar New Year get-togethers, consider offering a twist on tradition yourself and make mandarin ice cream or sorbet. They’re also lovely in marmalades.
When buying mandarins, select fruit that are heavy for their size and avoid soft spots. As they don’t keep well, it’s best to store them in the refrigerator. Don’t wash them ahead of time as the moisture may encourage mould to develop.
Pesticide-free Taiwanese mandarins 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.
