Cake Flour 

Where it’s from, a bit about it, perhaps a fun fact and how to store or keep fresh

Gideon Milling’s Cake Flour

~ ALL BOXES~

The cake flour in your Market Box comes from Gideon Milling. The mill is very selective when it comes to buying wheat and none of the wheat purchased is genetically modified. Crops on the mill are grown in an environmentally conscious way, using no-till sowing and crop rotation methods with various crop varieties being grown in a seasonal cycle. This method of crop rotation enriches the soil, naturally infusing it with nitrates, phosphates and minerals needed to encourage earthworms and other biological processes to flourish.


Mysthill Farm’s Raspberries

~ ALL BOXES~

The Raspberries in your Market Box come from Mysthill Farm. Store them in a dry place – if you won’t eat them immediately, pass them under water (for a quick rinse), then lay them out on a paper towel to dry, pop them into an airtight plastic zip bag or in a freezer-proof container and freeze them. They freeze very well and will keep for 10-12 months. Frozen raspberries are perfect for smoothies, in any baked goods and on top of your morning yoghurt or oatmeal. 

Terra Madre’s Baby Gem Lettuce

~ ALL BOXES~

The lettuce in your box this week hails from Terra Madre, just over the hill in Elgin. Terra Madre (meaning ‘Mother Earth’) are all about making sure the soil holds all its goodness – which passes into your food. To keep your lettuce fresher for longer, use a similar technique to what you do with your herbs. Make sure there is as little moisture on the leaves as possible – ideally, store it unwashed and wash it right before using them. Then, place in a sealable bag or container that has a few holes in it to aid with airflow. When serving, wash it to get any sand off and then pat dry. 

Naturally Organics’ Fennel

~ ALL BOXES~

We’re excited to have a fennel bulb in the box this week from Naturally Organics. Fennel is a flowering plant species from the carrot family. While the bulb is most commonly eaten, the leaves, seed and even the pollen are coveted flavours for dishes around the world – you can even use the leaves in a tea for nausea or period pain. When storing your fennel bulb, separate the stalks from the bulb and store the two parts separately in the fridge. The bulb can be stored upright in a cup of water, and the leaves in an airtight container with a damp cloth to keep them hydrated. Try to use your bulb as soon as possible to get the best flavour, whether it be slow-roasted and served as a beautiful side or on top of hot toasted pitas (recipe in booklet).

Léo's Little Jars’ Tomato Chilli Jam

~ ALL BOXES ~

This savoury jam hails from Léo's Little Jars, a confectionery that uses only the best seasonal and local produce to make limited edition jams. With no added preservatives or additives, Léo relies on her grandmother’s recipes to create unique flavours using only real fruits, flowers, teas and spirits.  

Knead Bakery’s Buns

~ ALL BOXES ~

Knead’s buns are available in both vegan and non-vegan options. If you won’t be breaking bread right away, freeze them. and when you’re ready to eat and enjoy – defrost your loaf, spray it with some water (so it doesn’t dry out), pop it in the oven at 180°C for 15 minutes and voilà! They’ll taste as fresh as when they were when delivered to your door.

Olief Farm’s Olive Oil

~ PLANT BOXES ~ 

Olief Farm is a small local farm with sustainability at the heart of its production value. Olive oil is naturally rich in antioxidants and in healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. A diet rich in extra-virgin olive oil is associated with lowered risk of heart disease. Monounsaturated fats are also quite resistant to high heat, making extra virgin olive oil a healthy choice for cooking.


Bolgari’s Coconut Yoghurt

~ PLANT BOXES ~ 

Bolgari’s delicious yoghurt can be enjoyed as is but can also be used for cooking. The yoghurt is 100% natural, lactose and gluten-free. It’s loaded with active cultures which have amazing benefits for your digestive health and immunity. This 100% lactose-free, gluten-free yoghurt also contains high amounts of protein and calcium. Pair this all-natural goodness with milk, honey and some walnuts and you have a healthy breakfast or any time snack.

Real food factory Chickpeas

~ PLANT AND VEG BOXES ~ 

Chickpeas are high in fibre and protein and are a good source of iron, phosphorus, and folic acid. Mash to a paste with lemon juice, olive oil, and sesame paste for a delicious dip or bread spread. Mashed cooked chickpeas are formed into small flat cakes or balls and fried for falafel, a popular Middle Eastern dish. In southern Europe and Latin America, chickpeas are a common ingredient in soups, salads, and stews. A kind of meal or flour is also made from chickpeas and can be used to make a flatbread known as socca or mixed with wheat or other flours for baking.


Langvallei Milk

~ LARGE, MEDIUM  AND VEG BOXES ~

The Langvallei Milk in your Market Box comes from grass-fed Jersey Cows that roam freely in the hills of Robertson in the Dassieshoek Nature Reserve. Milk from Jersey Cows is unique as it contains 18% more protein, 20% more calcium and 25% more butterfat than 'average' milk, hence its rich, creamy colour. With an average weight of 900 pounds, the Jersey produces more pounds of milk per pound of body weight than any other breed.

Gays Dairy Yoghurt

~ LARGE, MEDIUM AND VEG BOXES ~

Your yoghurt comes from Gay’s Dairy, all the way over the mountain in the picturesque town of Prince Albert. All their products are natural and free of hormones or antibiotics – they guarantee the most natural product, from monitoring the natural grazing of their cows right through to the yoghurt making process. Please note that while their milk is unpasteurised, their yoghurt is pasteurised, so no need to worry about any nasty germs. 


Camelot’s Feta

~ LARGE, MEDIUM AND VEG BOXES ~

The creamy feta in your box is from Camelot. Properly stored in brine or milk and refrigerated, feta cheese will last up to 3 months. Feta cheese is not ideal for freezing –in its creation, feta is briefly cured from goat’s or sheep’s milk in a brine solution which accounts for its salty flavour. Feta’s tangy taste and crumbly texture is perfect for sprinkling on top of scrambled eggs and/or salads.

Son of a Butcher’s Whole Chicken

~ LARGE AND MEDIUM BOX ~ 

The chicken in your Market Box comes from Son of a Butcher’s (SOB). SOB produce is pasture-raised and free of hormones. Here are some handy pre-cooking tips to follow to ensure you get the most from your chicken. Once removed from its packaging, discard any residue liquids – then, rinse your chicken and set it aside to air for 20 minutes. This process helps remove the cold edge, bringing it closer to room temperature – ensuring a smoother cooking process and tastier results. Don’t be alarmed if you pick up on a slightly egg-like, sulphuric smell. When vacuum sealing the chicken, oxygen is removed from the packaging to preserve its quality. 


Frankie Fenner Meat Merchants Mince

~ LARGE AND MEDIUM BOX ~

Frankie Fenner Meat Merchants (FFMM) are supplying their unadulterated beef mince that’s really something quite special. Ground beef, or “mince”, doesn’t really get the credit it deserves – too often, mince is simply leftover bits from a day at the butchery, chucked into a grinder – not a lot of thought, not a lot of love. At FFMM, they take as much pride in their ground, grass-fed beef, as they do with a ribeye. Their mince has about 20% fat and 80% meat, and they keep it nice and coarse. Your beef will come fresh – it’s best to dig in as soon as possible, otherwise freeze your meat if you’re not going to cook it within 2 days of receiving your box. It’s best stored and frozen in a covered, airtight container.

Son of a Butcher’s Whole Chicken

~ LARGE AND MEDIUM BOX ~ 

The catch in your box is Greenfish’s tuna. This tuna has been locally and sustainably caught using the pole method: one hook, one line, one fish at a time. Store your fresh tuna in your fridge and use at your leisure – it can last up to 5 days. Should you wish to freeze your tuna, freeze it as soon as you receive it and use it within 3 months.
