Nothing says summer like cherries! Full of flavour, they add a colourful flourish to every table. The best news is cherries are loaded with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. The dark red fruit contains Anthocyanin Glycosides, properties that can help relieve gout, arthritis and also help with post-workout muscle recovery. With this summer’s bumper crop, bringing out the cherries may be irresistible way beyond the festive season!
Here are the best in-season picks:
Apricots, bananas, cherries, figs, grapefruit, grapes, limes, melons, passion fruit, peaches, pears, plums, strawberries.
Basil, lemongrass, mint, parsley, rosemary, thyme, tarragon.
Beans, beetroot, capsicum, carrots, chilies, corn, cucumber, eggplant, lettuce, spring onions, peas, potato, rhubarb, silver beet, tomatoes, and zucchini.
