With Valentine’s Day next week we bring you our selection of the foods we love! From Vitamin C rich Goji Berries to Oelic Acid and Vitamin E rich Sustainable Red Palm Oil. We also share our favourite homemade gift ideas!
Let us brighten up your day with our range of tasty, colourful, 100% natural freeze-dried fruits and their excellent prices. Organic Strawberry Slices 100g are £7.99, Organic Raspberry Crumble is just £6.99 for 100g or if you prefer Organic Whole Raspberries they are £7.39 for 100g. Freeze dried fruits are made with approximately ten times their fresh equivalent which make them excellent value and a pantry favourite when fresh fruits are out of season. Add them to homemade porridge and cereals, baking, chocolates and smoothies or sprinkle onto winter salads to add a fruity kick.
Goji berries contain all essential amino acids and they have the highest protein concentration of any fruit, making them an excellent addition to your diet. Unlike many of the goji berries out there, our gojis are free from the preservative, sulphur dioxide. Add to your basket for just £9.95 for 1kg. Our sweet and mildly tangy Pineapple infused Cranberries are just £7.95 for 1kg.
Both are excellent for homemade trail mixes, porridge, oat bars and overnight oats, cookies and puddings.
We love Gianduja Chocolate as it mixes together hazelnut paste with cocoa to create a deliciously creamy sweet chocolate that’s not made with milk. Try a 1kg bag for £9.99 but be warned it is very more-ish! Can’t decide which dried fruit is your favourite? Then opt for our 500g Fruit Mix of Cranberries, Cherries, Sultanas and Raisins for just £4.45!
An excellent addition to homemade pasta dishes, are our salted Organic Sun Dried Tomato Halves. We recommend rehydrating them by soaking them in hot water for a few minutes if adding them straight to salads or pasta. Our Organic Red Palm Oil from sustainable small farm plantations in Ecuador (not to be confused with mass produced processed red palm kernel oils) is high in oleic acid, vitamin A and E. It is an excellent oil for roasting, shortening, soups and baking. Get a 500ml jar for £6.49.
