Bar­gains found in cit­rus

Central and North Burnett Times - - FENCE POST -

IT’S cit­rus time, with im­pe­rial man­darins, limes and navel or­anges in abun­dance and be­ing of­fered up at bar­gain prices.

The ex­cep­tion are lemons, mainly due to smaller sup­plies as cit­rus grow­ers con­cen­trate on their man­darin har­vest.

Some fresh pro­duce has re­mained firm as the win­ter grow­ing re­gions have yet to swing into full pro­duc­tion, but there is still plen­ti­ful stock shelves with bar­gains to be found.

You will pay firm prices for great qual­ity beans, broc­coli, cau­li­flower and mush­rooms. Capsicum is ex­pen­sive.

Prices are ris­ing on Asian veg­eta­bles, leeks, parsnips and snow peas.

For value-for-money veg­eta­bles, look for beet­root, brussels sprouts, car­rots, cel­ery, egg­plant, fen­nel, squash, sweet corn and sweet potato.

As­para­gus is avail­able but it is im­ported.

Other salad in­gre­di­ents, in­clud­ing let­tuce, salad mix, eschal­lots, herbs and haas av­o­ca­dos, are rea­son­ably priced.
