Green almonds have the briefest whisper of a season before their shells harden and start looking and tasting more like the almonds we know. They are tart and crisp and subversively addictive around cocktail hour! They are fuzzy light-green orbs filled with soft jelly-like skinless almonds—soft and delicately nutty with a wholly different texture than fully mature almonds. When fresh, they can be eaten whole. They’re crunchy, tart, and reminiscent of unripe peaches - in a good way. When the outer layer is removed, the young almonds are delicate, milky, and subtly floral and grassy. They are no available in our produce section!

Our T-bone steaks are sourced from Greater Southern, who use an English breed of cattle that are grass fed and GMO free. T-bone steaks are a hero piece of meat because there are two tasty cuts in one. The flavoursome sirloin on the one side of the bone and tender fillet on the other, its the best of both worlds! T-bone is at its most tasty when simply seasoned, then quickly pan-fried, grilled or barbequed.
The darker, tough husks that are often a magenta hue, need to be stripped away to reveal to tender and delicious yellow-green leaves inside. Cut into fine strips, the heart can be eaten raw in salads with a hot spicy sauce, as in the Thai dish nam prik or the Indonesian sambal –also excellent when teamed up with prawns and macadamia nuts. Like those of the artichoke, the petal-like leaves of the banana flower will quickly oxidize on coming into contact with the air once cut: because of their iron content, they will turn brown so it is advisable to dunk them in acidulated water.
With immense flower heads, hydrangeas flaunt an old-fashioned charm that is hard to resist.
