Graime Sait says that "we are what we eat and what we eat comes from the soil". For this reason, care is taken to promote soil health, which is accomplished through crop rotation, cover cropping, and planting permanent habitat for the pollinators and the beneficial insects. In this way, Amiable Organics is able to grow food that tastes good and feels good.
Oregano is almost as versatile as salt and pepper. It releases an earthy and mint-like aroma and its flavour is layered with pepper, mint and balsamic notes. </br> </br> Oregano is well known as a fantastic, health promoting herb. It has tonnes of vitamin K, calcium, and iron... as well as flavonols, and phytonutrients.
A nice bunch of local rosemary. An amazingly fragrant and flavourful herb that goes incredibly well with potatoes or roasts. </br> </br> Rosemary contains substances that are useful for stimulating the immune system, increasing circulation, and improving digestion. Rosemary also contains anti-inflammatory compounds that may make it useful for reducing the severity of asthma attacks. In addition, rosemary has been shown to increase the blood flow to the head and brain, improving concentration.
Fresh thyme. A welcome flavour in salads, soups, chowders, sauces, breads, vegetable and meat dishes. Thymol named after the herb itself is the primary volatile oil constituent of thyme, which has been found to protect and significantly increase the percentage of healthy fats found in cell membranes and other cell structures. Therefore is it likely very beneficial for brain health. Thyme also contains a variety of flavonoids, including apigenin, naringenin, luteolin, and thymonin. These flavonoids increase thyme's antioxidant capacity, and combined with its status as a very good source of manganese, give thyme a high standing on the list of anti-oxidant foods.
A half pound of leeks! Enjoy the mild & sweet onion taste of leeks. Great for sauteeing, or in quiches. </br> </br> Leeks are a good source of iron, vitamin C and folate. They, like other Allum family members (onions, garlic), are rich in antioxidants such as polyphenols and flavenoids. This means they're healthy for our hearts.
