Scottish Seasonality

Scottish Beetroot out of Glamis in Aberdeenshire is plentiful along with Braids of Kinross Broccoli.

The Lothians are producing all of our roots just now & Scottish potatoes are also in full swing!

Fruits include Angus Pears & forced Rhubard from Perthshire though the weather may slow down these local items.

The rest of the UK sees Cabbage, Kale, Leeks & Celery production bursting into life. Carrots, Parsnips, Turnips & Celery are sweet & juicy adding great winter flavours to your dishes.

Our friends at Hughes Mushrooms over in Ireland are at full production too with their earthy selection of fungi including the meaty Portobello & its smaller brown chestnut cousin and our exclusive 1.1Kg chip of stunning buttons too.

 

Our Specials this month continue with skinless, boneless Chicken fillets in 5Kg tubs, blocks of Cheddar Cheese, both mild & mature, Goats Log, Salted & Unsalted Butter, Gourmet Mayonnaise, Back Bacon, Skinless Gammons, Fresh Soup mixes, Red & White Cooking wine & Blue Roll.
