Perfect for the warmer weather, our pick of the week is Watermelon grown here in North Queensland. There is a great supply and fantastic prices on this sweet, juicy fruit. They’re great to just cut up and enjoy as is, but perfect in a smoothie in the morning.
You’ll find Iceberg Lettuce from Stanthorpe and Darling Downs in great supply, quality and price this week. Just in time for summer salads, look for round, firm heads when selecting lettuce.
Lo Bok, also known as White or Daikon Radish, adds a peppery kick to summer salads. This crunchy veg from South Australia is great eating and good value at the moment. The humble White Radish will surely add an extra element to your salads.
Coming in from Bundaberg, Continental Cucumbers are in abundance and priced to match, along with Lebanese Cucumber from Coffs Harbour and our local farmers.
There are currently overlapping growing regions producing Zucchini, with the North Queensland season just coming to an end and the Stanthorpe and Victorian seasons just starting, keeping this versatile vegetable affordable and in good supply.

Combine the fruit mince, cranberries, apple, rapberry jam and vanillin sugar in a bowl and set mixture aside.
Place butter, icing sugar, orange rind and flour into a food processor and process until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Then, add the egg yolk and 1 tbsp of the iced water (add more if necessary). Process until a dough forms. Divide the dough in half and shape into discs. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180°c/160°c fan forced. Grease two 12 hole round based patty pans. With a rolling pin, roll out 1 of the pastry discs between 2 sheets of baking paper until approx. 3mm thick. Then, using a 7cm round cutter, cut 24 round of dough, making sure to re-combine your dough scraps. Press rounds into the holes in the pre-prepared pans. Then, use a fork to prick the pastry cases.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden. Cool in pans while you repeating the rolling process with the second disc of dough. This time, use a 4.5cm star shaped cutter to cut 24 stars from the dough.
Now it's time to spoon the fruit mince mixture into the pastry cases. Compress the mixture with the back of your spoon. Next, top each tart with your pastry stars, making sure to press the edges down to seal.
Bake tart's for 10-12 minutes. Cool in pans for 5 minutes once golden. Transfer to a wire rack and dust with sugar before serving.
