#Adelaide Central Market Watch #15

Kick off the shopping with superfoods, grains and pulses from House of Health, ST 73-74.

Australian grown and kiln-dried organic red quinoa $14.99 kg, makes for a high-protein basis for soups, braises, breads and bakes. Amaranth grain is $14.50kg, Yorke Peninsula green-brown lentils $3.00kg and the All-in-one soup mix of beans and lentils is $4kg

Follow on with classic winter vegetables such as broccoli, celery and shallots - all are excellent prices and quality at the moment. Butternut pumpkins at ST 69 are $2 each. Choose different potatoes for different meals. Dutch Cream are waxy and perfect to roast, Nicolas for mash and the starchy King Edward for the best chips. All are under $5kg at ST34-35.

Queensland strawberries, tangelos and mandarins and Californian cherries are here for our winter.

Meat and Poultry

Casserole meats from Barossa Fine Foods are great this week. MSA yearling diced beef is $9.90kg. MSA beef is a grading program designed to guarantee tenderness. Ox-tail $11.99kg, Osso Bucco $13.99kg and lamb shanks are $4.50 each.

At $8kg, try O’Connell’s pork belly. Roasted on high, fat-side down first, flip when the crackling is crisp and glaze with a sharp marmalade to finish the roast. Take home a free copy of the Meat and Livestock Association’s Entice magazine for

ideas. Vegas Poultry ST62, this week has a 5 for $6 promotion on chicken koftas.


The best time of day to eat chocolate is before, during or after any kind of activity, during working hours, morning or afternoon tea, with or without drinks, coffee, or pretty much any time you have a pulse.
