There’s so much to see and do as part of Open Farm Sunday, from displays and tours to the chance to say hello to the animals
Fun on the farm Families across Britain will be heading into the countryside for Open Farm Sunday on 8 June. It’s a great day out – so why don’t you join them? At Asda, we know that supporting British farmers is important to our customers, which is why we’re a leading sponsor and supporter of Open Farm Sunday (OFS) through Asda Community Life. On 8 June, hundreds of farms across the country will open their gates to the public for OFS. It gives families the opportunity to get out into the countryside, meet farm animals and learn about where their food comes from. And the good news is most events are free!
than 200,000 people visiting farms during last year’s OFS. And research from the charity LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) shows that one in three British families has visited a farm in the past 12 months.
HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE Most OFS events are held at working farms, but you can also visit city farms, smallholdings and even farms run by schools. A dairy farm will be very diferent to a farm that produces crops, for example, so each visit will be unique.

with a little extra…
If you always stick to tried-and-tested Cheddar, you could be missing a treat. We’ve now got lots of cheeses with exciting added favours, so why not try something new, says our cheese expert Tom Holmes If you stroll down our cheese aisles, you’ll see classics like Tom Holmes, Cheddar and Asda Cheese Edam beside Team everything from Feta to Manchego and Halloumi. And we’re always working to source the best new cheeses. There’s more choice than ever before, but if you really love a particular type of cheese, you may be a bit reluctant to try something new. Fortunately, you can now enjoy the best of both worlds with the growing trend for ‘favoured’ or ‘speciality’ cheeses. These are standard cheeses with fresh ingredients added for an extra burst of favour. To develop our new range of Chosen by you favoured cheeses, we did
lots of research to fnd out which foods and tastes you love. The classic favours of Italian food, for example, are really popular so we’ve developed a cheese that’s favoured with sundried tomatoes, olives and basil for a wonderful Italian twist. Spicy food is also big right now, so we’ve added peri peri chilli from Africa to Cheddar for an extra kick. And we tapped into the trend for using real ale in recipes such as pies, then added wholegrain mustard to the mix, to create a really moreish cheese that’s brilliant for cooking.
Of course, even the best added ingredients wouldn’t work without a fabulous cheese to use as the base. We think we’ve cracked it with our exclusive Wyke
18 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | JUNE 2014
Farms Mature Cheddar. This wonderful cheese is produced by a family-run cheese maker in Somerset – the spiritual home of Cheddar – using milk from their own dairy cows and 100 other local farms within a 35-mile radius of their dairy.
All the milk comes fresh from the cows each day and, using a 150-year-old family recipe, makes a Cheddar with a rich, creamy favour. It’s then left to mature for six months to give it a real bite, before being delivered to another Somerset company, Norseland, for the next stage of the process. Using the Wyke Farms Mature Cheddar as the base, Norseland blends a variety of lovely fresh
ingredients to create our favoured cheeses. They use only top-quality, authentically sourced ingredients to guarantee they taste amazing. As Tracey Burr, Technical Manager for new products at Norseland, says, ‘We love Cheddar, but we wanted to add more pizzazz with these new cheeses by using fresh ingredients to give even more favour.’
Quality & choice
The fnished cheese is then made into family-sized wedges, handy slices or mini snacking portions – so there’s something to suit the whole family. The result is a range of delicious cheeses that are special enough for any occasion. They’re far too good to save just for your sandwiches…
‘My family has been making cheese for 150 years and we think our mature Cheddar is the best in the world. The clean, creamy taste makes it the perfect starting point for favoured cheeses.’ Richard Clothier, MD, Wyke Farms

Cook perfect pasta Get your pasta right every time with our handy tips. Heat a large pan of lightly salted water to full boil – don’t add oil as it will make the pasta greasy and the sauce won’t stick to it. Add the pasta, stir once and bring back to the boil. Stir again, then cook at a rolling boil, uncovered, for about 10-12mins for dried pasta or 6mins for fresh pasta. Pasta is ready when it’s ‘al dente’, an Italian term meaning ‘to the tooth’. You should feel a little bit of resistance when you bite it. Drain the pasta, but
don’t rinse with water if you’re serving it hot – the starch in the cooked pasta will help the sauce to stick to it. Reserve the cooking water – this is perfect for adjusting your sauce to the perfect consistency, and achieving a silky smooth texture. Serve the pasta as soon as possible after cooking, as it gets sticky as it cools. If the pasta is to be used in a salad, rinse it under cold running water as soon as it is cooked. This will remove the starch and stop the pasta sticking together.
GOT NO SAUCE? JUST ADD BUTTER, PARMESAN AND BLACK PEPPER LIKE THE ITALIANS DO

£5 KITCHEN KIT
For a crisp summer salad, you need clean, dry leaves – but washing and draining them can be fddly. That’s when a salad spinner comes in handy. Simply pop the leaves in the colander inside the spinner and rinse under cold water. Then spin the handle to drain away the water. Hey presto – perfect salad! Asda plastic salad spinner*, £5
AVOIDING SOGGY STIR-FRIES!
Stir-frying is one of the quickest, easiest ways to cook – plus it’s great for using up leftover veggies. Here’s how to make your stir-fries even better. Prepare everything in advance. Stir-fries cook fast – so once you get going, you won’t have time to chop things. Cut everything to a similar size, so ingredients cook at the same rate. Make sure the oil in the wok is really hot before you start adding the food. The ingredients will cook quickly but keep more moisture and bite. Keep moving everything around the pan so every bit is thoroughly cooked but not burnt.

DID YOU KNOW?
How to prepare garlic Garlic adds fabulous favour to dishes, but its strength depends on how you prepare it... CRUSHED Garlic crushed with a heavy knife or in a crusher has the strongest, most pungent favour. Cook over a low heat in a little oil for 1-2mins, taking care not to let it burn
or it will taste bitter. This is ideal for pasta sauces and soups. For the ultimate zip, add a little crushed raw garlic to salad dressings. CHOPPED This gives a strong favour to dishes, but is slightly milder than crushed. It’s the easiest way to prepare garlic if you’re frying it and adding it to
casseroles and stir-fries. ROASTED Whole cloves roasted with the skin on have a mild, almost sweet favour. Roast for about 20-25mins at 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Serve whole with dishes such as roasts or you can squeeze out the pulp and add it to mashed potato or sauces.
Getting more juice from your lemons Lemons and limes add a sharp zestiness to lots of recipes, from dressings to desserts. To get more juice out of citrus fruit, microwave for 10-15secs before squeezing and then rolling it on a board with the heel of your hand. This breaks the capsules in the fruit’s fesh that hold all the juice.
HAVE YOU TRIED….. WASABI PASTE?
If you’re a fan of horseradish, you’ll love wasabi. It’s a Japanese root vegetable that’s grated to make a bright green paste with an intense, fery favour. This paste is traditionally served dabbed on sushi, noodles and ‘tempura’ fried dishes – see our prawn recipe on page 55. Or add it to salad dressings, sauces and dips. Just go easy – it’s strong!
LOVE YOUR LEFTOVER CHEESE
Got loads of odd bits of cheese in your fridge? Use up all these leftovers in a simple fondue. Grate all the pieces and put in a thick-based pan. Blend a little cornfour with some white wine in a bowl, then pour into the pan. Heat gently until the cheese mixture is melted and simmering, then remove from the hob but keep warm. Serve with a selection of breads and vegetable sticks – just put chunks on a skewer or fork to dip in without burning your fngers.
If you have leftover lemons, try this idea from reader Luke Fuller: ‘Cut the fruit into slices and freeze. You can then use them instead of ice cubes for drinks – and they won’t dilute the favour.’

‘Peas and beans are such versatile vegetables – and we have so many more varieties in store than you might realise! Although they’re available fresh all year round from overseas suppliers, in the summer we source them from British farmers wherever possible. My favourites are newly shelled peas as they’re so sweet and tender. I sprinkle them with a little salt and just steam them for one or two minutes, or three minutes if they’re a bit older. I’m a big fan of broad beans, too – the shelled beans are great in pasta dishes for added texture. Damon Johnson, Head of Produce Quality
Minty pea dip Boil fresh or frozen peas for 3-5mins. Drain and put in a bowl with a knob of butter. Add crème fraîche and chopped mint, season, then mash well. Serve with slices of toast or cruditiés.
RUNNER BEANS Garlic & shallot runner beans Trim the ends of runner beans and slice diagonally into 1cm pieces. Heat a little oil and butter in a frying pan and add crushed garlic and a chopped shallot. Cook until soft. Add the beans and cook gently for 5mins. Season and serve.
A handful of Tip chopped herbs can really perk up a side dish of peas or beans. Try thyme with broad beans, coriander with sugarsnaps or tarragon with green beans. 28 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | JUNE 2014
Asian-style carrot & mangetout salad
When you’re using mangetout and green beans in salads, cook them in boiling water for 3 secs then dunk in cold water – this softens the raw texture and helps keep the colour.
Trim the tops and tails of a handful of mangetout. Put in a pan of boiling, lightly salted water and cook for 30secs. Drain, rinse under cold water then drain again. Put in a bowl, add a grated carrot and a fnely chopped, deseeded chilli. Toss the salad. Make a dressing of 3 parts oil to 1 part white wine vinegar. Add a little crushed garlic and grated ginger. Drizzle the dressing over the salad, then sprinkle on toasted sesame seeds.

The secret to making the perfect bacon sarnie is thick slices of crispy bacon in doorstops of soft white bread. Served with a nice cuppa. First, butter two slices of Asda Tiger Chest Bread with some Extra Special Somerset Farmhouse Butter. Then grill Extra Special Thick Cut Dry Cured Back Bacon Rashers for 4-5mins, depending on how well cooked he likes them. Sandwich the bacon between the bread and add a dollop of tomato ketchup or brown sauce, or even a fried egg.
Added extras... l If Dad prefers his
rashers really crisp, use streaky bacon instead of thick cut and grill it for an extra 1-2mins. l The Tiger bread we’ve used has a lovely crispy crust – but if he prefers soft crusts, use Asda White Scotch Rolls instead.

Leave the tails – you can use them to hold the prawns while cooking and eating. 2 Using a small, sharp knife, make a shallow cut along the curved top side of the prawn. You’ll see a thin vein (this may be black or clear). Hook it out with the knife and discard. Rinse the
prawns under cold running water and pat dry with kitchen paper. Meanwhile, start to heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer or large pan. If you have a thermometer, heat until the oil is 180C. Or drop in a cube of bread – if it turns golden in 30secs, the oil is hot enough. 3 While the oil is heating, sift the four, cornfour, baking powder and salt into a bowl and make a well in the centre. Using a wire whisk, gradually mix in the cold sparkling water. Whisk from the centre outwards, to make a thick batter. Don’t over-whisk (see tip below).
4 Put the remaining four in a shallow bowl. Holding them by the tail, dip the prawns in, one at a time, to coat. Shake of any excess, then dip in the batter. 5 Carefully put the battered prawn in the hot oil. You can cook a few at a time if your pan is large enough. Cook for 2–3mins until golden and crisp. 6 Use a slotted spoon to remove from the oil and put on a plate lined with a double layer of kitchen paper. Keep warm while you cook the rest. Serve immediately with the wasabi mayonnaise.
Glynis’ tips ● To thaw the prawns, put them in a single layer in
a shallow dish lined with kitchen paper, then leave in the fridge for 4–5 hours. Once thawed, use within 24 hours. ● Tempura batter should be mixed quickly and used immediately so that it doesn’t lose the air and lightness from the bubbles in the water and the baking powder. To

avoid over-beating, mix it with a wire whisk or chopsticks. It should be lumpy and about as thick as double cream. ● Keep an eye on the oil and never leave it unattended. If it overheats, it could catch fre. ● Use raw prawns rather than ready-to-eat ones so that they don’t overcook as they fry and become tough.

HEALTH CHECKS FOR
It’s Men’s Health Week from 9 to 15 June – the ideal opportunity to get clued-up on preventable problems Did you know that UK men visit their GP only half as often as women? Whether due to embarrassment, fear or simply a reluctance to admit something’s wrong, it means that, at worst, serious problems might not be tackled early enough. And at best, it means that men are living with niggly symptoms that could be easily cleared up. Here are fve health issues men shouldn’t ignore – and the easy ways you can detect them.
SYMPTOMS A lump – probably painless – on the testicles. STATISTICS Overall this is relatively rare, but it’s the most common cancer in men aged up to 45, with over 2,000 new cases diagnosed every year*. HOW TO CHECK Rob Cornes of male cancer charity Orchid recommends men check themselves every month. ‘Do it after a hot bath or shower so your body is relaxed. Run a fnger over the surface of your testicles,’ he says. ‘If anything feels abnormal, such as a frm
lump inside or on the surface – get it checked out straight away.’ WHAT TO DO The good news is that testicular cancer is almost always curable if treated early. So if anything seems amiss, going to your GP will pay of in the long run. ‘They’ll be able to check it out, and may arrange a scan at the hospital,’ says Rob Cornes. ‘And remember, doctors have seen it all before, so there’s no need to be embarrassed.’
For more information and advice, visit orchid-cancer.org.uk
SYMPTOMS Pain, tightness and discomfort in the chest. STATISTICS Coronary heart disease afects 1.4 million men in the UK – over 500,000 more men than women**. And it’s the UK’s biggest killer, too. HOW TO CHECK The British Heart Foundation advises getting any worrying symptoms checked without delay. Watch out for any unusual pain, aching or ‘heavy’ feeling in the chest, especially if it spreads, or an indigestionstyle pain combined with feeling generally unwell. If this happens, get to the doctor or hospital immediately. WHAT TO DO As high blood pressure is linked to heart disease, and is the second biggest risk factor leading to premature death in the UK**, it’s a good idea to get this checked – your Asda Pharmacy can arrange a simple free blood pressure test. There’s also a lot you can do to bring down the risk of heart disease in the frst place, such as eating plenty of fruit and veg, and getting 150 minutes of exercise a week†. A kickabout in the park and a banana for a snack might be a good way to start. Go to bhf.org.uk for details.

SYMPTOMS A low mood or anxiety that won’t go away, to the point where it afects everyday life. STATISTICS Men are particularly bad at acknowledging mental health problems. Just one in 10 men asks for help with depression, according to government statistics*. HOW TO CHECK ‘Look for signs such as cutting yourself of from friends, not doing things you usually
enjoy – or just not able to function in the usual way,’ says Sam Challis of mental health charity Mind. ‘Men are also likely to feel angry and aggressive when depressed.’ WHAT TO DO Taking this problem to your GP can seem a big step. But there’s a range of treatments on ofer, from counselling to medication, so there’ll be something to suit you. A confdential helpline like Mind’s may also help – visit mind.org.uk
SYMPTOMS Any unusual changes in the skin – but especially changes to moles or freckles. This could be a sign of melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer. STATISTICS Every year, around 6,200 men in the UK are diagnosed with melanoma**. HOW TO CHECK Men are more likely to develop melanoma on their chest and back (for women, it’s more often arms and legs), so a partner can be useful in spotting anything. Try the ‘ABCDE’ mole check list. Look for: Asymmetry (is one half diferent from the other?), Border (are the edges irregular?), Colour (is it more than one shade?), Diameter (is it bigger than 6mm?) and Enlargement (has it got bigger?). If your mole fts any of these, go to your GP. WHAT TO DO It’s important to get treatment as soon as possible. Although both sexes are equally likely to develop melanoma, men are more likely to die from it, possibly because they report it later**. Of course, it’s best to prevent it in the frst place. The main cause is over-exposure to sunlight, so cover up and use high-factor sunscreen. Go to cancerresearchuk.org for details.
