Hey check out the video I did for this blog here or click on the video below.
Today I’m going to talk to you about our Yellow Peach & Pear Puree.
We use South Aussie ingredients as much as we can and this puree is 100% South Aussie! The peaches we use are from Riverlands which is about 2 hours northeast from Adelaide. The pears and apples we use are from the Adelaide Hills which is approx 1 hour from where we do our cooking.
We get our fruits in as quickly as we can from the farms and get our cook on so they keep as much of there freshness as possible.
