This month’s shopping inspiration from food & reviews writer Anna Lawson
Tracklements feisty pineapple achar (220g) £3.60, tracklements.co.uk
A sweet and sour chutney with a good hit of hot punchy chilli, this is very sweet and fruity, a bit like sweet and sour sauce, but with a good, chunky texture. Try it with pork chops and rice, coconut curries or in a cheese toastie. Willy’s organic apple cider vinegar with the mother (100ml) £10.99, Holland & Barrett Apple cider vinegar containing ‘the mother’ is said to have many
health benefits. We love this one as it packs a proper punch of acidity but with a prominent apple flavour too. Try mixing with warm water, honey and lemon for a healthy morning drink, or
use in salad dressings.
macaroni (1kg) £2.60, Waitrose & Partners The ultimate shortcut ingredient, Beroni’s pasta is cooked until al dente, then frozen. Keep in the freezer to use in mac & cheese with no need to defrost – just stir into cheese sauce and bake. Native Snacks salt & vinegar popped lotus seed snacks (20g) £1.10, wearenativesnacks.com These light, crispy puffed snacks flavoured with salt & vinegar are extremely moreish, and a healthier alternative to crisps (around 60% less fat and under
90 calories). Wimbledon Brewery copper leaf cheddar (190g) £5, wimbledonbrewery.com
The Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company have re-released their favourite beerinfused cheese; a mellow cheddar combined with Copper Leaf Ale from Wimbledon Brewery, matured for six months.
