Okay- so now for some ideas to include these fabulous fruits in your day.

  • Have you had figs while eating out and thought hmmm delcious but how would I cook with those at home? Here is a fabulous healthy recipe from The Australian Healthy Food Guide- Lamb, chickpea and fig tangine
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon on cooked apple is scrumptious- team it with a scoop of low fat ice cream and you are winning.
  • I hear you ask ‘what is a nashi’? A delicious fruit, is a source of vitamin C, folate and antioxidants, and has a long history going back to the ancient emperors of Japan.  Something like a pear crossed with an apple, the nashi is very versatile and is great in salads, chutneys or on a cheese platter. Check out this fabulous recipe for Nashi Lamb Salad with Orange Mustard Dressing from Australian Nashi Growers Association.
