Welcome

Long before joining Asda, like many people, I’d scoffed at reports about the amount of food thrown away by supermarkets. What I wasn’t aware of is that suppliers often send more than is needed, but by the time it’s sent back it’s out of date and goes to waste. I was really pleased that we’ve launched a new partnership with the charity FareShare to work with our suppliers and redirect this food to those who need it most. In the first year of the partnership, FareShare aims to redistribute 1,500 tonnes of surplus food sent to us – the equivalent of 3.6 million meals, saving the charities involved £4.5 million. To see how the partnership will make a difference, turn to page 67. August is a busy time for FareShare – the school holidays are when many children miss their regular school meals and go without. And we know our customers are struggling more than ever to manage. In Asda Magazine, we use recipe ingredients that you’re likely to buy regularly or already have, use weights and measurements that reflect pack sizes, and where possible, suggest ideas on how to use leftovers – it means we can help you avoid wasting food, too.

plums Green-fingered Richard Beach enjoys showing his grandson Tom how to grow delicious Victoria plums at the family farm

‘Nothing beats the rich flavour of Victoria plums,’ says Richard Beach. Richard’s been growing plums on the 250-acre Mudwalls Farm in Warwickshire for the last 50 years, and has seen the company grow from producing plums for canning in the late 1960s, to becoming a busy pickyour-own farm in the 1970s. And for the last 30 years, the family farm has been supplying fresh Victoria plums to Asda. A FAMILY AFFAIR Richard’s favourite part of the work is walking around the orchards, checking the crops and comparing how they develop from one year to the next, he says. His grandson, Tom took an interest in the farm from a young age. ‘We live next door to the farm, so I like to look out my bedroom window onto the orchards,’ he says. ‘It’s great working with grandad – he’s shown me how to prune trees and drive the tractors. In the future, 16 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | AUGUST 2013


PLUM PRODUCER I’d like to continue working in agriculture – perhaps taking on the responsibility of the farm.’ WORKING LIFE AT THE FARM The season starts by cutting branches that could block the sunlight from getting to the fruit. The trees are then watered with the farm’s reservoir supply and bees are brought in to help pollination. The distinctive mottled red fruit is picked in August and it takes around three days from harvest to store delivery.

‘It’s a privilege to wander around the orchards and observe the plums’ Richard Beach

WORDS: CARLY RIGLEY. PHOTOGRAPH: WILLIAM SHAW

GREAT-TASTING PLUMS The main characteristic of English Victoria plums is their delicious sweet flavour, say the Beach family. They’re great eaten fresh from the punnet or stewed and served with fresh cream or ice cream. Mudwalls Farm hopes to supply Asda with at least 100 tonnes of the fruit this season. You’ll find the Victoria plums in stores from late August and throughout September.

STEWED PLUMS ● Stone 8-10 plums, then cut each fruit into four pieces. ● Cook in a pan with a little butter, a sprinkling of sugar, a squeeze of lemon juice and a splash of water. ● Cook gently for 10 minutes. Chill for up to a week. Serve on toast or with yogurt.

This season’s carrots are a great way to add colour and crunch to summer salads and stir-fries. Their natural sweetness also makes them delicious in soups, rostis and purées – and they’re brilliant roasted, too.

♦ Put some cooked and drained noodles in a bowl and add ribbons of carrot and chopped red chilli pepper. ♦ Whisk together some soy sauce, honey, lemon juice and sesame oil and pour over the noodles. ♦ Sprinkle with chopped peanuts and coriander and serve. AUGUST 2013 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | 19

Courgettes are plentiful this time of year. To serve as a simple side, slice and sauté in a little butter. They’re also great in soups, flans, and pasta dishes.

Courgette fritters V Put 100g plain flour in a bowl and season. Whisk together 1 egg and 5tbsp milk, then gradually whisk into the flour to create a smooth batter. Grate 150g courgettes, squeeze out any excess moisture and stir into the batter. Fry spoonfuls of the mixture in a little oil for 2 minutes on each side until golden.

blackberries Plump, juicy blackberries are in season right now, so why not try one of these delicious ideas? ● Add a handful to a cake mixture for a fruity sponge. ● Layer with cream, custard and jelly in a trifle. ● Cook with sliced apples to make a crumble or pie filling. ● Blitz into milk jellies. ● Stew with sugar to make a tangy sauce for ice cream.

Why not try… watermelon There’s nothing more refreshing than chilled watermelon on a hot summer’s day. Remove the rind and seeds, cube the flesh and add to fruit salads, blitz in smoothies or use in a fresh, cool salad with crumbled Feta.

3 ways with… mango

To prepare a mango, slice through lengthways as close as possible to the sides of the stone. Make criss-cross cuts in the flesh, but don’t cut into the skin. Turn the skin inside out and cut away the cubes of mango. Then cut any remaining flesh away from the stone, and cube.

Mango salad

Mango smoothie

Griddled mango

Cube a ripe mango. Deseed ½ cucumber, cut into half moon shapes and add to the mango in a bowl. Stir in some cashew nuts and diced red chilli. Make a dressing of 3 parts oil to 1 part lemon juice and add a little honey. Drizzle over the salad before serving.

Cube a ripe mango and put in a food blender or liquidiser. Add a peeled and cubed banana and a little sugar (optional). Add some milk and blitz everything together. Blend in natural yogurt until the smoothie is the consistency you like.

Prepare the mango by cutting it into long fingers rather than cubes. Heat a little butter and sugar in a pan, then cook the mango until browned on all sides. Add a dash of rum and cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Serve with ice cream.

Cooks’ tips Sharpen your cookery skills and food know-how with our top hints

ESSENTIAL OILS ES Olive oil is one of the healthiest fats because it’s high in monounsaturated fats and low in saturated fat. Use it for cooking Mediterranean dishes and for salad dressings. Extra virgin olive oil is made from the first pressing of the olive, so it has the best flavour. It’s quite expensive, so rather than use it for cooking, buy in small bottles and save it for salad dressings and dipping into bread. Sunflower oil is economical and good value. It’s great for roasts, stir fries and frying. Save your waste Baguettes go stale after one day but leftovers make great garlic bread. Make deep cuts at 1.5cm intervals. Mix softened butter with crushed garlic and spread it in the cuts. Spread any remaining butter thinly on top. Wrap in foil and cook in the oven at 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6 for 10-15 minutes, opening the top of the foil for the last few minutes. Or cook from frozen for 15-20 minutes.

KITCHEN MUST-HAVE A stick blender makes easy work of soups, smoothies and baby food – and it’s cheaper than a processor. We love this Russell Hobbs hand blender, £29.96* – it’s a 3-in-1 with a whisk, mini chopper and beaker.


EXPERT ADVICE

HOW TO USE GARLIC

Honey rescue If your honey has gone cloudy and hard, revive it by standing the jar in hot water until it goes clear again. Or microwave for a few seconds on low – but take of the lid first. POACHED TO PERFECTION Perfect potatoes For great results, cook the variety of potato best suited to the dish: Roast potatoes, chips and baked potatoes Use King Edward and Maris Piper potatoes as once cooked, they’ll be crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Mashed potatoes You need potatoes that are smooth and creamy – Desiree, Estima, King Edward and Maris Piper are best. Potato salad Use waxy potatoes, such as Charlotte or new potatoes.

Did you know? Basil and mint are best added at the end of cooking because they lose flavour when heated.

For poached eggs, you need the freshest eggs possible. Pour 3cm boiling water into a frying pan, add 1tsp vinegar and a pinch of salt and heat until gently simmering. Break one egg at a time into a cup. With a wooden spoon, swirl the water to make a ‘whirlpool’ and slide the egg into it. Cook for about 3-4 minutes or until the white is set and the yolk is still soft. When they’re cooked, carefully lift out on a fish slice and serve.

Overripe bananas make fantastic ice cream. Freeze the bananas in their skin. Then, once frozen, peel, cut into chunks and whizz for a few seconds in a processor with a spoonful of honey, jam or maple syrup. Eat straight away. AUGUST 2013 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | 25

WORDS: GLYNIS MCGUINNESS, GREGOR MCMASTER. PHOTOGRAPHS: ALAMY, GETTY IMAGES, MAJA SMEND. *£22 BETWEEN 17 AUGUST AND 7 SEPTEMBER

The key to getting the right flavour from garlic is all in the preparation. Crushing with a garlic press gives a strong flavour that’s great for Italian dishes. Slicing provides a more subtle taste, perfect for Asian recipes. While bruising will give a mild flavour – bash with a rolling pin (skin on), roast whole cloves or add to casseroles, then remove before serving.

Glynis’ tips ● Use your leftover egg whites for meringues or freeze for up to 3 months. ● It’s essential to use full-fat condensed milk in this recipe or the mixture won’t thicken properly.

1 Preheat the oven to 160C/140C Fan/Gas 3. Lightly grease a 23cm loose-based flan tin with butter. Put the biscuits in a freezer bag and bash with a rolling pin to make crumbs. Melt the butter and stir in the crumbs and sugar. Transfer to the tin and use the back of a metal spoon to press the mixture firmly over the base and up the sides to an even thickness. Put on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 10 minutes. Allow to cool.

2 Separate the eggs and put the yolks in a large bowl – see the tip below for using up the leftover egg whites. Add the condensed milk, making sure you get all of it out of the can. Always use original full-fat sweetened condensed milk for this recipe and not the ‘light’ version – see tip below. Add the lime zest and whisk gently for about 2 minutes, using a hand or electric whisk, until everything is evenly combined.

3

Add the lime juice gradually, drizzling it in slowly and whisking gently all the time. While you’re whisking, the mixture will start to thicken as the lime juice reacts with the condensed milk. The mixture will be quite pale. If you want to give your pie filling a little more colour, add a few drops of green food colouring – but you can leave it out if you prefer.

Pour into the flan case, making sure you get all the mixture out with a spatula. Bake for 20 minutes or until the filling is just set. Leave to cool, then refrigerate. Before serving, whip the cream until it just holds its shape, taking care not to overwhip or let it get too stiff. Put the cream in a piping bag with a plain nozzle (or in a freezer bag with one corner cut off) and pipe small blobs around the edge of the pie. AUGUST 2013 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | 49

FARESHARE

More and more people are going hungry and d families are finding it difcult to feed their children three meals a day in the school holidays. Asda has teamed up with the charity FareShare to help the country’s most vulnerable people. Turn over the page to find out how

‘Through our new supply chain model and work with FareShare, I’m proud we’re able to help feed millions of UK families who would otherwise go hungry.’ Barry Williams Asda’s Chief Merchandising Officer for Food

W

ith the economy still struggling, more people than ever are turning to food banks or getting fed at homeless shelters, day centres and breakfast clubs – which is why Asda has launched a new partnership with food redistribution charity FareShare. Surplus food from the chilled supply chain is passed on to FareShare, which in turn distributes it to charities it supports so they can create meals for those in need. With Asda on board, it’ll mean an extra 3.6 million meals a year. AUGUST 2013 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | 67


FARESHARE

Instead of sending any surplus food back to the manufacturer, we’re now redistributing it to FareShare, where it will be delivered to the hundreds of charities it supports to help people in need

WHERE DOES ASDA FIT IN? Although we’ve developed a scheme to reduce food waste in our supply chain, the nature of our business means there will inevitably be some surplus. Suppliers often send more stock than we’ve ordered – this food is all in date but at risk of going to waste. Not anymore. Our partnership with FareShare will ensure that this food, including dairy products, fruit and veg and chilled foods, goes to people who need it most. What’s more, we’ll be covering the transportation costs of getting it to the charity’s distribution depots. 68 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | AUGUST 2013

WHAT DIFFERENCE WILL IT MAKE? Last year, FareShare redistributed 4,200 tonnes of food. With our support, this figure should increase by at least another 1,500 tonnes of fresh produce by the end of 2013 – that’s 3.6 million more meals a year that charities can produce for their local communities. For FareShare, fresh and chilled produce is in great demand as it represents the most expensive part of a charity’s food bill. Our involvement in the scheme, which is backed by our fresh food suppliers, should see far more fresh produce being donated in the future.


WORDS: NICKI MCINTYRE. *GOVERNMENT INDICES OF DEPRIVATION. **WASTE ARISING IN THE SUPPLY OF FOOD AND DRINK TO HOUSEHOLDS IN THE UK, WRAP, 2010. ***THE IMPOVERISHMENT OF THE UK, MARCH 2013 (BY THE POVERTY AND SOCIAL EXCLUSION RESEARCH PROJECT). †FEELING THE SQUEEZE, FEBRUARY 2012 (BY NETMUMS). ††THE TRUSSELL TRUST

13 million people in the UK live below the poverty line* WHAT IS FARESHARE? Established in 2004, the charity believes that ‘no good food should be wasted’ and aims to rescue as much as possible of the 3 million tonnes of food that goes to waste every year in the UK**. FareShare currently has 17 depots nationwide, from which it redistributes food. For more information, go to fareshare.org.uk. WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FOOD? FareShare redistributes the surplus food to 910 charities and community projects, where it is used to provide nutritious, home-made meals. Last year, FareShare provided food for more than 10 million meals to the charities it supports. HOW MANY PEOPLE BENEFIT? As the recession bites harder, FareShare is feeding more people than ever before. It’s currently helping to feed 43,700 people a day – 7,200 more than last year. FareShare helps the charities it supports to save an average £13,000 per year on their food bills – money that can then be used on other services.

CHARITIES THAT ARE BENEFITING FROM THE FARESHARE PARTNERSHIP According to FareShare, Asda’s involvement means that charities across the UK will be able to save £4.5 million and allocate it to other essential services. ‘It’s great to see faces light up when the food is unloaded at its destination,’ says Stuart, a volunteer for FareShare. ‘People from all walks of life are being helped by FareShare – and they are so grateful,’

‘FareShare helps people from all walks of life’ POVERTY… THE STATS 4 million adults and children in the UK are not properly fed by today’s standards*** 20 per cent of mothers regularly skip meals to feed their children† A quarter of the charities receiving food from FareShare feed vulnerable children

Bristol Sheltered Accommodation & Support gets food from FareShare twice a week. General manager Dave says, ‘A lot of the time our clients don’t have benefits in place and come here with nothing. Thanks to FareShare, we can cook them a meal – otherwise they’d just go hungry.’ Autism Initiatives UK receives food from FareShare every week, and as Sarah Moreton from the charity explains,

‘Working in partnership with FareShare has meant that we’ve been able to invest more money into our other enterprises that provide crucial services such as work experience, training and employment opportunities for our users. This has been an enormous help to us in making a very real difference to the lives of those people we support.’

HOW YOU CAN HELP – DONATE TO A LOCAL FOOD BANK We can all do our bit to help tackle food poverty. Trussell Trust is a charity that provides emergency food to people in crisis, through food banks in the UK. They are always looking for volunteers, help in fundraising or donations of non-perishable food. To find out about food banks in your local area, go to trusselltrust.org.

Are we there yet? Planning long journeys with the kids? Whether it’s by plane, train or car, make getting there part of the fun It might be a day trip or your annual holiday, but the chances are, you’ve got at least one long journey ahead of you this summer. Make sure you have lots of tricks up your sleeve to keep the kids entertained, fed and watered, and the journey will whizz by.

START RIGHT ‘Think positively,’ says Child Psychologist Dr Richard Woolfson. ‘If you’re tense before the journey starts, you’ll communicate this to your child. Have a smile on your face, relax, explain that the journey is going to be fun – and ignore any minor moans.’ 70 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | AUGUST 2013

GOODY BAG The most common cause of stressful journeys is the kids moaning they’re bored. Keeping them entertained is the key. Make up goody bags with games and magazines. There’s a great range to choose from at Asda, from Ben 10 and Moshi Monsters magazines to Skylanders stickers. Try not to take toys with you that have lots of fiddly bits, though. They’re bound to end up stuck under the front seat and you’ll end up with tears and tantrums.

HI-TECH FUN When games of I-spy or a sing-song won’t cut it, there are plenty of gadgets to keep them entertained. Before you set off, you could also download a few games apps onto

FAMILY first aid

With just a little basic first aid knowledge, you can help keep your family safe, wherever you are Minor accidents, scrapes and knocks are all part and parcel of family life. According to the British Red Cross, around three million people rush to hospital each year with injuries that could have been attended to with basic first aid knowledge. So if you’re prepared with a little know-how and a half-decent first aid kit, you should be able to deal with whatever crops up. Here’s our guide to the most common problems. BRUISING AND SWELLING Treatment Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling and pain – a bag of frozen peas or ice wrapped in a tea towel is ideal. If the child has had a blow to the head and they begin to feel sick, drowsy or their condition gets worse, call 999 because it may indicate a more serious injury. CUTS AND GRAZES Treatment Rinse the wound with cold water to clean away dirt, then pat dry and

apply a plaster or dressing to protect the area. Youngsters will like Asda Great Stuff 36 Assorted Plasters, £1, which come with fun stickers. If the wound is bleeding heavily, put pressure on it with your hand, a tea towel or even a T-shirt. This will reduce the flow of blood and help it to clot. For severe bleeding, or if the wound is deep or has a foreign object in it, go straight to A&E. ALLERGIES Symptoms Hay fever, which is caused by an allergic reaction to pollen, can result in long bouts of sneezing, watery eyes and itchy ears. Allergies to pets, and foods such as nuts, seafood and eggs can cause a rash, wheezing, stomach upset, swelling around the face or itching of the eyes and ears.

KEEP OUT OF SIGHT AND REACH OF CHILDREN. ALWAYS READ THE LABEL

Treatment An antihistamine syrup, which is easy for kids to swallow, should reduce the allergic reaction. If symptoms get worse, seek medical help.

BURNS AND SCALDS Treatment The faster you deal with burns, the less the damage. Cool under cold running water for at least 10 minutes to reduce pain, swelling and chances of scarring.

ORAL HEALTH

Winning smile We all respond to a friendly smile, but did you know that looking after your teeth can have health benefits, too?

M

any of us would love to have pearly whites like television presenter Holly Willoughby or the cast of Glee. According to a study by Crest, having whiter teeth makes you more employable, creates a good first impression and makes you more attractive to the opposite sex. More importantly, looking after your teeth can help reduce the chance of developing serious health conditions, says British Dental Health Foundation advisor Karen Coates. ‘Poor oral health is associated with heart disease, stroke, diabetes and low birth weight. Oral health can improve with a good tooth care routine, so follow these tips below.’

How to care for your teeth USE FLUORIDE TOOTHPASTE You should brush teeth for two minutes twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride helps strengthen tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay. After brushing, spit out excess toothpaste and leave the residual paste on your teeth for half an hour afterwards for full benefit. All Asda own-brand toothpastes contain fluoride. Or try Oral-B Pro-Expert Toothpaste, £3.47 (75ml) or 2 for £4*. CLEAN BETWEEN TEETH Brushing alone only cleans around 60 per cent of the tooth surface. Removing plaque and debris from between your teeth will help protect against decay and gum disease. To do this, floss daily or use an interdental

brush with multi-layered bristles. Try the Asda Protect Interdental Brush, £2. USE A MOUTHWASH Don’t use mouthwash straight after brushing. Choose a different time, like after lunch, and look for ones containing antibacterial ingredients to reduce plaque and prevent gum disease. Asda Protect Zero Alcohol Mouthwash, £1.50 (500ml), is ideal for all the family. INVEST IN A POWERED TOOTHBRUSH Tests have shown that for most people, powered brushes are better at cleaning hard-toreach areas and removing plaque than a manual brush. The Colgate Max White One Sonic Power Battery Toothbrush, £3, is great value. AUGUST 2013 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | 75


ORAL HEALTH

Foods best for teeth It’s best to keep food or drink that contains sugar or acid to mealtimes as saliva can neutralise the plaque acids that are produced, preventing dental erosion. The saliva-neutralising process takes about an hour, but you can speed this up by using a fluoride mouth rinse, drinking a glass of water or chewing sugar-free gum. The British Dental Health Foundation suggests choosing snacks that are kind to teeth, such as vegetables, rice cakes, breadsticks and nuts. And according to oral health experts, eating foods such as celery, carrots and strawberries can help to polish teeth naturally – while strawberries also contain a natural bleaching agent that can help to reduce stains. Adding milk to tea and coffee helps minimise staining, too.

It’s no longer recommended that people have an automatic six month dental check-up. When you go to the dentist, they will check your oral health and suggest when you should return. It’s a good idea to take the little ones with you when you go for your check-ups as this helps them get used to the dental environment from a young age.

By brushing your teeth twice daily, you’re less likely to develop tooth decay Whiten up Brushing teeth with a whitening toothpaste can help to brighten them and prevent staining in the future. Be all smiles then, with these toothpastes used together with an electric brush for a really deep clean. We like: Oral-B 3D White Brilliance Toothpaste, £3.47 (75ml) or 2 for £4*; Colgate Max White One Active Toothpaste, £2 (75ml); Oral-B Professional Care 600 Toothbrush, £25; Colgate Pro-Clinical C200 Toothbrush, £25**.

YOU WOULDNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T IGNORE THIS. SO WHY IGNORE BLOOD WHEN YOU BRUSH YOUR TEETH? If you spit blood when you brush your teeth, it could be an early sign of gum disease, a leading cause of tooth loss. So, if you spit blood in the sink when you brush your teeth, try Corsdoyl Mint Mouthwash. Nothing is more effective at treating gum disease.* Find out more at www.corsodyl.co.uk

TIME FOR YOU

Create your own home spa night Looking for some me-time after a busy day? Try our ideas for a little pampering at home. Put a ‘do not disturb’ sign on the bathroom door and indulge in a luxurious bath…

1

Set the mood by lighting a scented candle while you’re running the bath, so that the fragrance has time to diffuse. TIP: Create a playlist of music to listen to and pop a glass of your favourite chilled drink by the bath.

2

Smooth skin and boost circulation by using a body brush to make upward strokes towards the heart before bathing. TIP: Try a body scrub instead – try NSPA Warming Sugar Scrub, £4.95 (225ml) or 2 for £5.

3

Steam opens up pores, so apply a face mask when you’re in the bath. TIP: A clay-based mask, such as Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Face Spa, £1.48, gives a deep clean.

4 5

Use a body lotion directly after bathing as damp skin absorbs moisture more easily. TIP: Give hands a little TLC – file nails, apply a polish and, once dry, rub in hand cream. We like NSPA Bathing Rituals Hand Cream, £2.75 (100ml) or 2 for £5.

ILLUSTRATION: NILA AYE

Apply a rich conditioner, such as Andrew Barton Colour Protect Treatment Mask, £4 (300ml), to damp hair and cover in a shower cap. Rinse hair just before you get out of the bath. TIP: Place a rolled-up towel behind your head, lie back and relax.
