SEN­SI­BLE EAT­ING IS JUST WHAT DOC­TOR OR­DERED

Avon Valley Gazette - - WHAT'S ON PLANNER -

WA food am­bas­sador Don Hancey has the recipe to keep­ing healthy this Christ­mas – fruit on the bar­be­cue.

Last week, Hancey showed Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group how easy it was to cook up West Aus­tralian Lin­ley Val­ley pork and fruit on the bar­be­cue at his Os­borne Park kitchen.

“What pork loves over Christ­mas is ap­ple and sage,” he said.

“Ev­ery­one does bar­be­cues over Christ­mas and just about the whole year round so it’s re­ally easy to grill fruit on the bar­be­cue… even the kids can do it.

“Ap­ple is per­fect but also pineap­ple and apri­cots.”

City Beach res­i­dent and doc­tor Joe Kos­terich said eat­ing fruit and good qual­ity meat was the per­fect com­bi­na­tion at Christ­mas.

“If there’s a time of year peo­ple are go­ing to overdo it, it’s go­ing to be Christ­mas,” Dr Kos­terich said.

“But if you’re go­ing to have a big­ger Christ­mas lunch than nor­mal don’t stress about it; you can pick up the pieces on Box­ing Day.

“Be­ing aware of por­tion sizes is al­ways the key.”

Hancey fin­ished the dish with a new prod­uct, ap­ple bour­bon, and chilli salt.

“Christ­mas is about tak­ing it easy. I still have a sleep af­ter Christ­mas lunch,” he said. “It’s all about bal­ance.” Watch Hancey cook­ing pork and fruit on the bar­be­cue at www. com­mu­ni­tynews. com. au.
