    Those vine tomatoes from ALDI are fantastic.

    have to agree with you on that. Not really a tomato fan but had these on a sambo today and the taste off them was fantastic...never said that before about a tomato!

    The key is to eat them at room temperature I think, straight out of the fridge and they do not have as much flavour at all.

    Want to extract even more flavour? Cut them in half, put them on a baking tray with a pinch of salt and cook them at 140c for 1.5 hours

    Your tastebuds won't know what hit them.

    I dunno if all tomato packets say it, but on one I read, it recommended not putting them in the fridge as it hindered the ripening process.

    Cucumber: Sweet cucumber pickle - The most basic recipe: (peel and deseed if you want) slice the cucumber thinly and put in a bowl. Splash on a bit of cider or rice vinegar, a table spoon of sugar, a bit of salt. Cover and leave overnight in the fridge. Lovely in a sandwich.

    Lemons: Lemon drizzle cake - http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/4942/lemon-drizzle-cake. The recipe states only zest of one lemon, but I always put at least two if not three.

    Avocado: Use instead of butter in a sandwich. Tip: When mashed - keep the stone in it to stop it going brown.

    Combine the avocado from Aldi with the 60 Cent mango's from Tesco and you can have a cheap posh salad :)

    My local Dunnes matching Aldi again
    Cucumber
    Scallions
    Avocado 2

    Sweet Potato

    I assume they either have a spy in Aldi HQ or have a mad scramble every week to source the same fruit&veg at the same price for all their stores

    Cut them up thinly in discs, fry in oil till golden, add some peppers mushroomsherbs whatever, mix up 4 eggs and pour over, don't touch pan till their nearly set, bung whole pan under grill till its lovely and golden brown on top. Sweet potato Frittata :-)

    Make spicy sweet potato wedges - peel them, cut them into wedges and put on a baking tray with salt, pepper, chilli flakes and a little olive oil. Bake at 180 for 40 minutes or thereabouts


  • Registered Users Posts: 867 ✭✭✭laros


    Sweet potatoes make a lovely thick soup... lots of recipes on T'internet...


  • Registered Users Posts: 194 ✭✭MadamX


    Sweet potato is great with goats cheese. Try grating sweet potato, add sautéed onion, goats cheese, a beaten egg and seasoning. Squash into fistful size patties, drizzle with olive oil and bake in the oven. Voila - sweet potato and goats cheese rosti. Yummy!

    Good for you to know already! Great offers next week. My pineapple stash is nearly gone since they were last on! Have 1 left to do me 'til Sunday so.

    Must get some galia melon before it's over on Saturday.

    Saw it in a leaflet this morning. Usually only get the leaflets when the offers have started and have never got it this far ahead before (Snubble or Lindtee usually get there ahead of me :D)
