I love surprises! So it was a huge surprise yesterday to start getting all these emails and Facebook Like notifications froms those of you who saw Edible Gems featured on The Best of Landline, which aired yesterday. We didn't realise we had been selected for one of The Best Of episodes, so what a pleasant surprise!
And thank you to all of you who have emailed and joined us on Facebook.
While our Edible Gems Fresh Borlotti Beans are currently out of season (in fact, Michael is only a few weeks away from getting them planted for the 2012/13 season), what we do have available is our newest product – Edible Gems Sweet Green Peas. Harvested and packed similar to the borlotti beans, the peas are shelled in the field, then given a cool water bath to lock in sweetness. They then get packed in 250g punnets and sent to an independent greengrocer near you.
So be on the look out for our sweet peas…and we will keep you posted by Facebook and newsletter when then Edible Gem Borlotti Beans are next available.
For those of you wanting to try the peas, here is the recipe I made for dinner last night – Fresh Pea and Potato Soup with Garlic Croutons.
