summer goodness.

summer goodness.

Kiwi Summers are sweet as. It's all about relaxing, taking time off work for BBQS, spending extra time at the beach and just generally enjoying the great outdoors. Everyones especially laid back and there are tonnes of simple pleasures to enjoy from the company of friends and family to the fruits (and vegetables) that the sun brings with it. 

Some you love, some you hate. There are classics, while others are a little weird or somewhat familiar. They come in many forms but one things for sure, NZ soils are magic and produce some darn tasty goods, especially in Summer. 

This week there are a few new fresh products joining our basket of Kiwi goodness. Check them out below. 

THE CONTROVERSIAL.

The most controversial vegetable of them all is now in season. These miniature cabbages are packed with goodness and when cooked right, can taste pretty darn good. If you're not so sure about Brussel Sprouts, check out our Instagram story! Maybe we can sway you over to the green side.

THE UNKNOWN. 

This is a Kiwano. It's also known as a Horned Melon, isn't it glorious. Despite looking like something from space, the Kiwano is grown in NZ. It has a subtle taste resembling cucumber and kiwi fruit and a jelly like texture. They're great for garnishing exotic drinks and making salads a little fancy.

THE FAMILIAR.

Just like a kiwi fruit, only tiny and furless! These are Kiwi Berries and they've just come into season. Bite sized poppers packed full of kiwi goodness, literally. They won't be around for long so treat yo' self while you can.

When we think about our Six Barrel products, we occasionally do get that ‘our hands are tied’ feeling—not because we don’t know what to mix it with; it’s just that there simply are too many options, and that they are all too good to pass on.
