Fruit of the Month: January

2nd January 2018
Fruit of the Month: January

This month we’re focusing on Cranberries!

Cranberries are known for being high in vitamins C, D, potassium and iron - making them the ideal natural remedy to boost energy and help you recover from the festive season.

Find out how to make the most of cranberries with the following delicious three recipes.

Cranberry oatmeal crumble bars

The ideal morning snack, these cranberry bars are just what you need to give your year a kickstart. Add cranberries, orange zest, orange juice and 3/4 cup of granulated sugar to a large pot and bring to a boil. Once boiled, reduce the heat and add 2 tsps of cornstarch then simmer for 15 minutes. In a separate bowl, whisk 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla extract and add the flour, whole-rolled oats and stir. Once combined, bake and store in the fridge.

Long beach iced tea

A twist on the classic Long Island iced tea cocktail, long beach iced tea simply uses cranberry juice instead of cola for a refreshing and sweet taste. For those that are not quite ready for the festivities to end, this grown-ups-only drink is a fruity twist on an old favourite - why not garnish with a few leftover berries?

Cranberry orange walnut cake

To get you through the final winter months, there's nothing quite like a piece of fruity cake with a cup of tea! To create this cranberry delight, simply combine 250g flour, 150g caster sugar, salt, 1 1/2 tsps baking powder and 1/2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda in a mixing bowl, followed by cranberries and walnuts. In a separate bowl, mix together one egg, oil, orange juice and grated orange zest, then pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir until blended. When the cake mixture is properly blended pour into a loaf tin and bake!
