Chicken Kampung Eggs

Chicken Kampung Eggs

These eggs from healthy, free-range hens have higher nutritional value (as indicated by their deep orange coloured yolks) making them a healthier option to the normal chicken variety.

Celeries

Celeries

A collection of long, thick, juicy stalks around a central, tender heart, celery is a nutrient-rich vegetable loaded with fibre and vitamins. Because of its neutral taste, celery is often great in hearty dishes, like a stir-fry or a stew, and lighter plates like a tuna sandwich or salad.

Australian Frozen Lamb Shoulder Cut

Australian Frozen Lamb Shoulder Cut

A lean red meat with a mild, but distinctive flavour, lamb shoulder cuts consists of nicely marbled meat that has a pronounced sweetness. Because the shoulder muscles do more work than the leg muscles, they’re less tender and thus take well to slow roasting or braising. Prepare the meat according to your needs; cut into chunks for a stew, or ground for burgers.

Plain Croissant

Plain Croissant

One is never enough when it comes this classic French pastry. The only other thing you need with your croissant is a large cup of coffee in which to quickly dunk it, and extra butter for that added layer of luxurious creaminess!

White Button Mushrooms

White Button Mushrooms

Mushrooms are rich in moisture and are made up of about 90 per cent water. The stem itself is rich in flavour and nutrients, so make sure to use them in your dishes as well.

Yellow Onions

Yellow Onions

Onions are a staple in any cook’s pantry. Their raw pungency turns sweet when sautéed, and they are an indispensable ingredient in building a flavour base for soups, stews, curries, risottos, and pilafs. Chopped raw onion is an important ingredient in salsas. Yellow onions are a good choice when a recipe specifies simply chopped onion. For the sake of freshness, opt to buy two smaller onions rather than one big one – this way, you’ll avoid having half a used onion shriveling in your fridge.

Lettuce

Lettuce

Save the end of a head of lettuce and place the stem end in a shallow dish of water. Next put it on a window sill and watch it regrow!

Apples

Apples

Apples are generally delicious and crunchy. When baking with apples, look for those that keep their structure, which keeps the chunks of fruit from turning into apple mush after being in the oven. Granny Smith apples are generally the go-to baking apple as they hold up under heat and balance that sweet-tart flavour perfectly.

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are, of course, best known for being a great source of beta-carotene (hence the deep orange colour), which may reduce the risk of heart disease, protect against asthma, and slow down the aging process.
