The versatility of pumpkin

Pumpkins are the symbol of Halloween. In Australia, we are relatively new to the centuries-old tradition of pumpkin carving, however pumpkins can be used in a whole host of other ways. Not only can they be a decoration for your home, they can also be used in the kitchen to create some truly delicious recipes.

Bright and vibrant beets

Beetroot is a versatile vegetable that will brighten your plate as well as your palate. It’s low in fat, full of vitamins and minerals, and packed with powerful antioxidants. The earthy flavour of beetroot works perfectly with a multitude of ingredients, both sweet and savoury. Try adding them to your salad, blitzing them for a tasty dip, or as a topping to your favourite stew for a sweet note and a splash of colour. The skins can be left on, washed and cooked, or peeled off.
