Best winter fruits and vegetables

Keep energised with the best colourful winter produce – at home or out on a wilderness adventure

Citrus

Fruits of the citrus variety are a delicious and cheap way to ingest a range of vitamins and minerals when our immune systems are battling the elements. Mandarins, navel oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit – feast on them all.

Carrots

This hardy vegetable is available all year round and friendly for those living on a budget. They’re great as a superstar ingredient in a sweet dish, eaten on the go or to add some colour to a basic camp-style stir fry. Carrots are high in vitamin A and extremely versatile. Hint – wash them, but leave unpeeled to boost fibre content.

Autumnal produce

With winter upon us, now is your last chance to snatch up the last of the top quality autumn produce. Pumpkin, rhubarb, quince and persimmons are among many fruits and vegetables that grow in their prime around autumn, so get onto these while they are still of high quality. Hint – if making a campfire pumpkin soup, cut the pumpkin very small so it cooks faster.

English spinach

This dark leafy green grows best in cooler weather and is packed with nutrients such as dietary fibre, iron, folate, vitamin K, calcium, B group vitamins and many more micronutrients. Basically it is the ultimate green from a nutrition perspective and is recommended as an alternative to lettuce in your sandwich any day. Throw into egg dishes, stir through pasta sauces and add to slow-cooked campfire chilli dishes.
