Wow!! What an amazing harvest! There is just so much to Cook! Where to start?
Hmm … I can definitely taste a a whole heap of Italian dishes with all the tomatoes, eggplant and peppers available. Try Cooking Pot’s Eggplant Parmigana or Vegetarian Lasagne. A Laksa is never the same without grilled Eggplant!
This is definitely the time to start stuffing! Stuff tomatoes with a variety of fillings from Seafood to Vegetarian and Vegan variations. Do the same with Peppers and try a chicken and cheese filling. Taste the difference of your food when the fresh produce you use is in season and better still Organic and the only thing that tops that is Home-grown! I’m salivating already and we haven’t even scratched the surface of the recipes available on Cooking Pot the iPhone App!!

Eating Okra raw and crushed every morning is also a folk remedy for diabetes.
Ok! Let take a peek at the fruit before this article gets too long. Hmm… I can taste a whole lot of different cobbles with all the apricots, berries and peaches. Don’t worry about the wheat and sugar when you can substitute oats and a bit of honey and end up with a healthier crumble. On the other hand besides an everyday fruit platter the other things that stand out are the lemons which make yummy Lemon Butter or salad dressing and the berries which make a divine Raw Chocolate Cake.
