I brought peaches, plums, radishes, beetroot, sweetcorn, apples, Mediterranean grapes, aubergines, tomatoes, melons, peppers and avocados to name a few. My kitchen is full of colour from all the wonderful fruit and vegetables.
In my afterschool school class today we tasted a selection of the fruit that I bought today - including pomegranate seeds and honeydew melon. The kids also made my kids friendly guacamole. A few of the children had never tasted an avocado before and were a little hesitant but all but one tried it and liked it.
There are lots of different processes to making the guacamole such as squeezing the lime, chopping up the tomatoes into small cubes and mashing the avocado flesh with a fork. Here's the recipe for you to try at home:
2 very ripe avocados
1 large tomato
Juice of 1 lime
3 tbsp. olive oil
A little salt and pepper
1 tbsp. chopped coriander
1. On a board, chop the tomatoes up as small as possible
2. Cut the avocados in half, take out the stone and remove the flesh with a tablespoon. Place the avocado flesh into a bowl and mash them up with a fork
3. Now add the tomatoes, lime juice, olive oil, coriander, salt & pepper and mix well
4. Serve the guacamole with pitta bread, sliced carrots, peppers or for a treat some tortilla chips
