Versatile late-season lemons are a kitchen essential. Lemon juice and zest add flavour to marinades, cakes, steamed puddings or, try drizzling lemon juice over a chicken before roasting to embellish the flavour. Select lemons that feel heavy for their size; this indicates good juice content
Aussie asparagus is a top buy. With prices so low why stop at one bunch. Add trimmed bunches of asparagus to risottos, blanch, toss in a spring salad with broad beans, enjoy bunches barbecued or toss in a hot wok with king prawns and crushed garlic.
Tasty broad beans are a source of protein and iron, making them especially valuable for those who choose a vegetarian diet. Choose firm green broad beans with plump rather than bulging pods. Smaller young pods house the most tender beans. As a guide, 1 kg broad beans yields about 250g (1 cup) shelled beans.
Versatile and affordable zucchini are in good supply at your local greengrocers. Add mild-tasting to a spaghetti Bolognese, frittata, meatloaf, pasta dishes, muffins, cakes, burger patties and char-grilled to add to salads.
