August 2019 – Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

Hot and sunny August is one of the best months for growing produce in Ontario. Right now we are feasting on peaches, plums, cherries, blueberries, tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, cucumbers, corn and so much more.

Try to eat what is growing locally and consider preserving what you can for the colder months. Use fresh fruit in Lynne’s Fruit Tagine recipe or try our Seasonal Veggie Pot Pie. Find quality kitchen tools here to get you preparing and cooking produce.


Preparing and chopping is the first job in meal prep. GLOBAL knives, made in Japan, are made from the finest stainless steel material. The blades utilize CROMOVA 18 stainless steel, ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56°to 58°, which holds a razor sharp edge longer than any other steel and resists rust, stains and corrosion.

Like the Samurai swords before them, each knife is carefully weighted to ensure perfect balance in the hand. The smooth contours and seamless construction eliminate food and dirt traps, offering the ultimate in safety and hygiene.
