Discount fruit & veg via Red Apple

If you like fresh ingredients, but find it hard to pop to the shops every couple of days, then a new delivery service could be for you. Red Apple will bring a wide variety of seasonal fresh food to your door and has just added NW6 to its distribution area.

Very kindly, it sent me a “test” delivery yesterday – and my kitchen is now groaning under the weight of jumbo asparagus from Suffolk, some delicious large tomatoes, courgettes, beans, satsumas, kiwi fruit, potatoes, lemons, carrots, satsumas, a red pepper, a cucumber and a butternut squash.

Even more kindly, Red Apple is offering whampers a great deal: half price off your first order if you follow them on Twitter and quote “WHAMPWIN” when you place your order. Can’t be bad.

The company delivers to West Hampstead on Saturday, and you need to order by Thursday 9pm.

I’m off to have the rest of my five-a-day.
