Organic Fruit and Vegetables from Farmaround (& a Giveaway)

We were sent a luxury fruit bag and a big vegetable bag from Farmaround on the day I had planned to start weaning Wriggly. Perfect timing!

Farmaround Organic Fruit

She had just turned six months old on the day we received the fruit and veg, and I was going to give her organic carrots as her first vegetable, just like her three siblings had had before her.

Farmaround Organic Vegetables

Her big brother was keen to get involved. He peeled her carrots and cut them with his child safe knife. He also mashed them after I had steamed them, and fed his baby sister. She was not impressed! The weaning process could take a long time with our little lady.

Getting the fruit and veg delivered straight to my door was a real treat. It looked really good and fresh. I also loved the fact the organic goodies arrived in big sacks. I used those for fruit and veg peelings and organic waste and it meant my bin did not get dirty that week.

Farmaround Organic Fruit & Vegetable Bags

This is what we used all the organic fruit and vegetables for:

The raspberries just disappeared as soon as I washed them.

Wriggly had most of the carrots puréed as her first solids.

We had some of the carrots and the broccoli with our salmon fillets one night.

One apple, a couple of pears and an orange went into my fruity mincemeat.

We made a vegetarian quiche with the courgettes and plum cherry tomatoes.

Courgette, Tomato & Goat's Cheese Quiche

Oranges went in mulled wine.

Pineapple, bananas, apples and clementines were used in smoothies.

Fruit for Smoothie

The pomegranate and a pear gave us a delicious salad.

Crunchy Pear and Pomegranate Salad

I also made vegetable soup, mash and served the rest of the broccoli with steak.

The bananas were not nice and the potatoes had to be scrubbed, but other than that, we really enjoyed our two bags.

Just be aware that sometimes, the contents of the bags do not match the list given on the website. When it happens, Farmaround simply add something of equal value to your bag. If you want a specific bag content, they have a ‘Pick you own bags’ option.

    Okra. It’s horrible and slimy. Ugh!

  85. I eat all fruit and vegetables except for avocado pears (yes I know they are fruit not veg but hey ho, I eat the rest!); the reason I don’t like them is the texture and that they taste creamy to me (I am lactose-intolerant and maybe it’s the creamy association that just puts me off). We’ve started trying to grow a few more bits each year (last year we had nice strawberries, blackberries, gooseberries, tomatoes and various salad leaves and herbs – hoping to get planting soon). I haven’t tried Farmaround bags but would be interested to do so and see what meals and treats we can make with the contents.

    For me it’s Leeks, in the army I had a detachment to the Welsh Guards for a few weeks, and one of the stunts they had the new blokes perform was to drink a pint of bitter and eat a raw Leek at the same time. Even the though of them turns my stomach these days!

  245. Leanne Newsome says:

    Radish because they don’t taste of anything

  246. Alexandra Smith says:

    This sounds really bizaar, but bear with me… I can’t stand mushrooms – apparently I decided I didn’t like them as a child because I found out that mushrooms were a fungus & therefore associated mushrooms with fungus the bogeyman (so obviously mushrooms = bogeys!). Ok, so i’m just strange!

    • You made me laugh! My husband cannot stand mushrooms and it is always a big thing when we are in France with my family, he he!

  247. Paula Phillips says:

    I don’t like mushrooms as I couldn’t eat a fungus.

  248. Jess Mandeville says:

  253. claire matthews-curtis says:

    I use to hate sprouts when I was younger but love them now. I think it was because I like a bit of crunch to my veg and my mum use to boil them till they were much.

  255. Spencer Wright says:

  257. Lindsay Seels says:

    Sprouts as I really don’t like the taste.

    I don’t like turnips. Where I come from, they’re grown as food for cows so I can’t bring myself to eat one.

  273. HazelY says:

  284. asorelli says:

    the ubiquitous beetroot

  285. Jayne K says:

    can honestly say i like every vegetable

  287. Carol Phile says:

  306. L Jenkins says:

    Mushrooms, I think it’s the look of them that puts me off!

  307. Ann Williams says:

    It would have to be cabbage. Although as a child all our vegetables other than potatoes were home-grown they were always cooked in a full pan of water removing all taste (and much goodness) and giving off a very unappetising aroma. Although I have since persuaded myself to eat most vegetables that is the one vegetable that still defeats me although I am happy to cook it (definitely not in a full pan of water!) and serve it up to others

  315. Karen O'Reilly says:

    The only vegetable I can’t abide is Jerusalem Artichokes 🙁

  316. Kelly Hooper says:

  332. Aaron Milne says:

    Raw tomatos

  333. Ali Thorpe says:

    I’m not keen on aubergine and I think it’s something to do with the watery texture it gets when cooked. I don’t hate it though.

  334. becci cleary says:

    All vegetables are a No-Go to me apart from Peas and Potatoes.
    I remember as a small child (about 4) my Nan snuck ‘Pot Herbs’ into some mince and when I chewed they crunched, I will never forget the shock of that feeling and haven’t been able to eat any veg since!

  335. I love all vegetables! When it comes to fruits, though, grapefruit is evil!
