Summer is in full swing in South Africa, and undoubtedly the most beautiful season by far. Spending time outdoors and getting in tune with nature is my new motto. If you have time to nourish the family with an easy and good-for-you meal, even better so.
When I received gorgeous organically grown fruits from Jacksons Real Food Market, I was thrilled to learn more about the agriculture movement of the century – organic farming. You all know by now what organic farming means, right? The use of zero pesticides and chemicals ensures naturally grown crops with the soul purpose to uplift the people, soil and produce.
Of course you also know that the team over at Jacksons are doing their very best to provide you with these produce straight from the community of farmers right here in beautiful South Africa. Read more about the local organic system, changing lives as we speak – here.
A hot, summer’s day calls for a refreshing snack or meal, like this fresh and zesty Fruit Carpaccio with Mango and Honey Sorbet. Going organic has never been this easy, folks. The fresh line of produce you will find at Jacksons Real Food Market is filled with a variety of fruit variations, always seasonal and they are aiming to stock organically grown produce only.
I got to play with a myriad of fresh fruits for this shoot and decided to keep my plate of fruit pretty simple. Thinly slice your range of produce and arrange it on a beautiful plate with extras like mint sugar, sugared berries and of this incredible Mango and Honey Sorbet.
The Mango and Honey Sorbet is definitely the star of the show here, and I even managed to pull it off without a churner. Simply chop your mangoes up and freeze it. When you are ready to make the sorbet, blend the frozen fruit with some honey and pop it back in the freezer until serving. Smooth, fresh, frosty and delicious.
