  2. The facts about Palm Oil - and why stopping using it is not the answer!

    The facts about Palm Oil - and why stopping using it is not the answer!

    In recent times a lot has written about how bad Palm Oil is, but the truth is that a significant amount of work has been going on by Trade Organisations and Governments to assist farmers, growers, producers and processors to achieve a product which comes from a certified sustainable source. Most recently, Chester Zoo have come out in favour of the continued use of Palm Oil which is sustainable and not to switch to alternative vegetable oils as this would send the problem elsewhere and could have more serious environmental impacts due to more land being required.

  3. Tony's Talk - There isn’t a pea grown that can’t be cooked!

    Tony's Talk - There isn’t a pea grown that can’t be cooked!

    Although the Nation enjoyed a fantastic summer, we all know that we are suffering the after effects. Lack of moisture and high temperatures have played havoc with the potato, wheat and pea crops. As previously mentioned, despite starting four weeks late our pea crop soon looked in great shape - well established with an abundance of flowers. Then at the critical time came the heat! Just as the flowers were to transform into pods temperatures hit 25ºC when flowers just fall off. Thereafter it really was a case of “spot the pea pod”!

  8. Tony's Talk - Time for something a little different?

    Tony's Talk - Time for something a little different?

    Fortunately, there are some undeniable truths about the food we eat. One is that Pulses are good for us being packed with protein, vitamins and fibre – and we should eat more of them. In the North particularly, we have recognised that ‘Mushy Peas’ not only enhance the appearance of a meal of Fish ‘n Chips but they also add to its claims to be a healthy meal. Like many people I believed that Marrowfat Peas were first introduced to Europe over 100 years ago from Japan. Known as ‘the plump pea’ or ‘the Fat Maro’ in Japan. I thought that we somewhat perverse Brits must have renamed them ‘Marrowfats’!
