HOW DOES IT WORK? We’ve managed to compress the same protection as a standard 150ml aerosol pack into a little can half the size. We’ve reengineered the spray system, reducing the amount of gas needed to deliver the same level of antiperspirant ingredient with each spray. This allows us to deliver at least the same sweat protection as the 150ml can but in a smaller 75ml can. Our compressed technology has been extensively tested so we can be confident that if you use it just like you use your normal 150ml pack, it will last just as long and work just as well.

Welcome

With spring just around the corner, there’s no better time than March to shake away the cobwebs of winter and look forward to the promise of better weather and brighter days. For those itching to venture outdoors and start on the garden, we’ve got some great gardening tips and bargains on page 63, and with a new spring collection in our homewares range too, breathing new life into your home couldn’t be easier (page 71). But the highlight of the month for me has to be Mother’s Day on 10 March. In my family, it’s a time to pamper and spoil her rotten. Our ideas for a special afternoon tea on page 29 are a great way to celebrate. Swap tea for a glass of fizz for an indulgent treat, or if your little ones want to add their own special touch, why not get them to make our delicious cupcakes (page 36)? However you choose to toast yours – here’s to mum!

Quality herbs

Meet our herb producer, Rob Grundy, above, who reveals how innovative growing techniques and a little TLC can help produce ďŹ ne herbs 16 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | MARCH 2013


WHO GROWS IT HERBS

‘The great thing about potted herbs is their longevity. If you look after them, they can last three to five weeks – water them little and often and always from the base.’ Rob Grundy 1

WORDS: CARLY RIGLEY. PHOTOGRAPHS: WILLIAM SHAW

Fresh herbs liven up your cooking and look beautiful in your kitchen. You’ll find a range of fresh potted herbs in store ready to take home and enjoy, including chives, coriander, mint, thyme, basil and parsley. They’re grown by Lincolnshire Herbs – and we were their first customer back in 1998. ‘Fast-forward 15 years and we now have eight acres of stateof-the-art facilities and grow 13 million herbs each year,’ says Site Manager Rob Grundy. ‘And last year, we were named Edible and Salad Grower of the Year at the Grower of the Year Awards, which was a great achievement,’ he says. HERB PRODUCTION The crops are grown all year round in glasshouses, where the temperature and irrigation are computer-controlled. ‘The process from sowing to harvest takes three to six weeks,’ says Rob. Once germinated, the herbs are placed in a gutter system and slowly moved automatically from one end of the glasshouse to the other. During this growing process, they’re ‘tickled’ by mechanical rubber strips, which mimic the movement of wind to help stimulate growth and encourage strength.’ CARING FOR YOUR HERBS Looking after your herb at home is simple, says Rob. Remove the packaging and put it on a saucer on a windowsill. Water it little and often and always from the base. Only snip off what you need. ‘Basil is my favourite, he adds. ‘My wife makes a lovely tomato and mozzarella side salad with it.’ For more herb ideas, visit getcooking. ASDA.com and lincolnshire-herbs.co.uk.

1 The manual harvesting process in action 2 Basil (pictured here) is the company’s bestselling herb, followed by coriander and curly parsley in that order 3 The herbs are distributed within 24 hours of harvest. Lincolnshire Herbs supplies our stores with 5.5 million pots each year 4 Chives growing in the glasshouse 5 The company employs 50 production team members to handle the process from start to finish

FRESH IN STORE FOOD

In season How to make the most of the tastiest produce available in store this month at Asda

Spotlight on FIGS Fresh figs are great served with cured meats such as Parma ham and salami – or for a dessert, try them baked (see below). They can be stored in the fridge for up to three days wrapped in kitchen paper.

Baked figs

♦ Preheat the oven to 200C/ 180C Fan/Gas 6. Halve a few figs and place in a roasting tin cut side up. ♦ Top the figs with some whole or chopped walnuts. Drizzle over a little runny honey, then bake in the oven for 20 minutes. MARCH 2013 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | 19


Cauliflower fritters V

Damon Johnson Head of Produce Quality

Boiling cauliflower is quick and easy but steaming locks in more flavour. Or why not try it roasted? Break into large even-sized florets and toss in olive oil. Put in a shallow baking dish and roast at 200C/180C Fan/ Gas 6 for 25-30 minutes.

20 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | MARCH 2013

♦ Break 700g cauliflower florets into small pieces. Steam or boil until just tender, then drain and cool. ♦ Mix 200g self-raising flour with 1 large egg and 200ml milk until you have a thick batter. Stir in the cauliflower pieces to coat. ♦ Heat some oil in a large frying pan and drop in tablespoons of the mixture one at a time – take care not to overcrowd the pan. Cook in batches for 3-4 minutes each side. Serves 4 CALORIES

FRESH IN STORE FOOD ROSEMARY Here are some great ideas for this versatile herb. ♦ Add sprigs to bottles of olive oil – good for adding flavour to salad dressings. ♦ Use bunches to brush meat with oil for barbecuing or roasting meat. ♦ Add chopped leaves to stuffings or sauces to serve with lamb, chicken or pork – use sparingly as rosemary sema has a strong flavour. vour.

ORANGES Freshly squeezed orange juice is great for livening up dressings and smoothies, or add segments to salads and desserts. Grated zest is also brilliant in sauces. Oranges will keep for two weeks at room temperature or in the fridge.

HOW TO PREPARE Carefully run a small sharp knife vertically around the middle of the plum. Twist to seperate, then ease out the stone with a teaspoon.

3 WAYS WITH…

Plums

BAKED PLUMS ♦ Halve and stone a few ripe plums (see left). ♦ Put in a roasting tin cut side up and top them with some crushed gingernut biscuits. ♦ Brush the plums with melted butter. Bake in the oven at 200C/ 180C Fan/ Gas 6 for 20 minutes.

PLUM SAUCE ♦ Stone and quarter 4-5 plums and cook in a pan with a little butter. ♦ Add some brown sugar, a pinch of nutmeg and a good splash of port. ♦ Cook for 10 minutes until tender. Blitz until smooth. Serve with duck.

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.

Make the most of these wonderfully versatile kitchen staples – they’re worthy of the main event

SERVES 6 READY IN 1HR 15 MINS PRICE PER SERVING 42p

English onion soup Give traditional French onion soup a twist with English cider and English Cheddar cheese 15g unsalted butter 1tbsp sunflower oil 500g large brown onions, halved and thinly sliced 1tsp caster sugar 15g plain flour 500ml reduced-salt beef stock 500ml cider 1 small baguette 75g mature Cheddar

Melt the butter and oil in a large saucepan. Add the onions and stir until they’re well coated. Cook over a low heat, stirring often, until soft. Stir in the sugar and continue to cook over a low heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring often, until they’re a deep golden brown. As you stir, make sure you take the spoon

right into the base of the pan to ensure that the onions don’t catch in places. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring all the time, for a further 1 minute. Gradually stir in the stock and then the cider. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 35-40 minutes. Preheat the grill. Slice the baguette and put in a single

layer on a grill pan. Grill until toasted on one side. Turn over and sprinkle with the cheese, then grill until it melts. Divide the soup between six bowls and top each one with slices of bread. Sprinkle with black pepper, to serve.

Americanstyle onion rings V These also taste great with sweet chilli sauce 100g plain flour 2 level tsp Asda Cajun Seasoning 2 large egg yolks 1tbsp oil 150ml semi-skimmed milk 2 large onions, peeled Oil, for frying in deep fat fryer 1 egg white Tomato ketchup, to serve Sift the flour, cajun seasoning and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the yolks and oil. Slowly whisk in the milk to make a smooth batter. Chill in the fridge, covered, for 20 minutes. Slice the onions into rings about 1.5cm in diameter. Separate the rings and set aside. Heat the oil in a deep fat fryer to 180C or you can use a large saucepan and fill it one-third with oil. Heat until a small piece of bread dropped in the oil turns golden brown in 60 seconds. Whisk the egg white until it forms stiff peaks and then gently fold it into the batter. Dip the rings into the batter, a few at a time to coat them completely, then carefully fry in the oil in batches, for 3-4 minutes each, turning them over half-way through, until golden brown. It’s important to only cook a few at a time, because if you overcrowd the pan, they won’t cook properly. Lift out with a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate topped with three sheets of kitchen paper – this will soak up any excess fat. Keep warm while you continue to cook the rest of the rings in the same way. Serve with tomato ketchup. CALORIES

Red onion chutney

V

This keeps for up to a month and is delicious with cold meats and cheeses 700g red onions, halved and very thinly sliced 2tbsp sunflower oil 1 bay leaf 1 sprig of fresh thyme 50g soft brown sugar 3tbsp balsamic vinegar 150ml red wine 75ml apple juice Put the onions in a saucepan with the oil and stir

to coat. Add the bay leaf and thyme. Cover and cook over a very low heat, stirring often, until they’re really soft and falling apart but not coloured. This is called ‘sweating’ and will take 20-30 minutes. Doing this will make the flavour milder and will bring out the natural sweetness of the onions. Add the sugar, balsamic

vinegar, red wine and apple juice and cook over a medium heat, uncovered, stirring often, until all the liquid has evaporated. This will take at least an hour. Stir continuously towards the end of the cooking time to make sure the chutney doesn’t catch and burn. Half an hour before the chutney is ready, wash a 450g jar and lid in hot soapy water

and then rinse and put in the oven for 20 minutes at 140C/ 120C Fan/Gas 1 to sterilise. Or you could wash the jar on the hot cycle in a dishwasher. Put the chutney in the sterilised jar and leave until cold. It will keep in the fridge for up to a month. CALORIES

Shallot V tarte tatin

450g pack shallots 50g unsalted butter 3tbsp balsamic vinegar 3 level tbsp brown sugar 2 sprigs of fresh thyme 300g Asda Ready to Roll Puff Pastry Flour, for rolling out Preheat the oven to 200C/ 180C Fan/Gas 6. Lightly grease a 20cm shallow (3-4cm deep) round cake tin – make sure it isn’t a loose-based tin or the liquid will run out as it cooks. Put the unpeeled shallots in a saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 4 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water until cool enough to handle. Peel the shallots, leaving just enough of the root end to stop them falling apart. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the shallots and cook over a low heat, stirring gently and turning often, for about 10-15 minutes or until they are tender. Take care not to let the butter burn. Add the vinegar, sugar and thyme and stir. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is syrupy and thickened. Transfer the shallots and juices to the tin and leave to cool slightly for 10 minutes. Roll out the pastry and cut out a 23cm round. Lay it on top of the tin and tuck in the edges. Bake for about 25 minutes until the pastry has risen and turned golden. Turn out upside down onto a plate to serve. CALORIES

FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH FOOD

Onion gravy with sausages & mash Onion gravy is great with sausages, liver, steaks or chops. The slow cooking releases the natural sugars to give a fabulous rich flavour 15g butter 1tbsp sunflower oil 4 red onions, halved and finely sliced 200ml white wine 2 sprigs of fresh thyme 350ml chicken stock, made with 1 chicken stock cube 2 level tsp cornflour

Sausages, mashed potato and green beans, to serve Melt the butter and oil in a pan. Add the onions and stir to coat. Cover and cook over a very low heat, stirring often, until they’re a deep golden colour – this will take 30-40 minutes. Don’t be tempted to speed this up.

Add the wine and thyme and boil fast, uncovered, until the wine is reduced by half. As the wine reduces, the flavour will intensify, become richer and all the alcohol will burn off. Pour in the stock and leave to simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the thyme. Mix the cornflour with 2tbsp

cold water and stir into the onion mixture. Simmer for 2-4 minutes, then serve with sausages, mash and beans. If you want to serve it as part of a vegetarian meal, use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock. CALORIES

Line a 12-hole bun tray with cupcake cases (not fairy cake or muffin cases). Sift the flour and baking powder together into a large bowl. It’s important to measure the baking powder accurately – use a measuring spoon and run your finger across the top to ensure that it’s level. Make sure the butter is soft (a bit like mayonnaise) but not melted. Add the butter, sugar and eggs to the flour. Beat with a wooden spoon until well mixed. Scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula and beat again for 1 minute. Put the mixture in the paper cases, making sure they’re all about the same size. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the tops spring back when lightly pressed. Cool on a wire rack. Make the buttercream – see recipe below. Add a tiny blob of red food colouring and beat until the icing is pink. Use a clean cocktail stick to add a little more colouring if necessary. Put the icing in a piping bag with a large star nozzle and pipe it onto the cakes. Or spread it with a knife. Sprinkle a few pearls on top of the cakes. CUPCAKE WITH BUTTERCREAM

How to make it H

A tagine is an ideal dish for weekend entertaining because, although it takes around two hours to cook, it doesn’t take a lot of time to put together. We’ve used lamb neck fillet in this recipe because it becomes incredibly tender when slow-cooked and it’s reasonably priced. Plus, it’s easy to cut, which makes your job easier!

Match with… Marques del Norte Rioja,

£4 (75cl) Medium bodied, this Rioja is full of juicy red berry notes with a hint of spice. It’s perfect served with lamb.

Preheat the oven to 160C/140C Fan/Gas 3. Heat half the oil in a frying pan and cook the cubed lamb in batches until browned on both sides, then transfer to a casserole dish. Heat the remaining oil in the pan, then cook the onion until soft and starting to turn golden. Add all the spices with 2tbsp cold water. Stir over a medium heat for 1 minute, then mix with the lamb. Heat the tomatoes in the pan until simmering, stirring to pick up any leftover spices. Add to the lamb with 300ml hot water. Cover and cook in the oven for 45 minutes.

Add the carrots, honey and red peppers to the casserole dish. Cover and cook for another 45 minutes. Add the fresh coriander, prunes and apricots to the casserole. Cover and cook for a further 30 minutes. Meanwhile, put the almonds on a baking tray and roast for 5 minutes until golden. Sprinkle the roasted almonds onto the tagine along with the remaining chopped fresh coriander. Serve with couscous.

Jim’s tips ● A tagine can be made in advance and reheated. The flavour

improves if it’s kept in the fridge for a few hours or up to a day, then reheated. ● If you fancy a change from lamb, you could make an equally delicious chicken or pork tagine by replacing the lamb in this recipe with skinless chicken thighs or pork steaks. ● You can use an authentic tagine instead of a casserole dish – its conical lid provides plenty of room for steam to form, keeping the lamb and other food moist while they cook. But you don’t have to use one to create this beautiful dish.

RECIPE: GLYNIS MCGUINNESS. PHOTOGRAPHS: DAVID MUNNS. STYLING: REBECCA NEWPORT. FOOD STYLING: LINZI BRECHIN, GREGOR MCMASTER, GLYNIS MCGUINNESS

Glynis McGuinness Food Editor

Shortcrust pastry is the workhorse of the pastry world. Once you know how to make it, you’re on your way to pies, tarts and pasties – and, of course, quiche. The classic quiche Lorraine comes from France – serve it cold if that’s more convenient, but for me, nothing beats warm quiche.

1 Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Sift the flour and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Cut the butter and lard into small cubes and add to the flour. Then, using your fingertips and thumb, lift and rub the fat into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Mix the egg yolk with 4tbsp cold water and add to the mixture. Mix until it forms clumps, adding a little more water if necessary. Gather together, wrap in clingfilm and chill for 15 minutes.

2 Lightly dust a work surface and rolling pin with flour. Roll out the pastry using short, sharp, light strokes to make a round about 29cm across. Gently lift the pastry onto the rolling pin, to help move it, and then place it over a 23cm flan tin. Carefully ease it in, using your fingers to make sure it goes right into the edge. Trim the top edges to about 4mm above the tin. Prick the base with a fork and chill for 15 minutes until the pastry is firm.

For the pastry 200g plain flour, plus extra for rolling out 75g butter, chilled 25g lard or white vegetable fat, at room temperature 1 egg yolk

For the quiche Lorraine filling 250g Asda Extra Special Gammon Steak, trimmed of fat and cut into small cubes 1tsp sunflower oil 4 spring onions, trimmed and sliced 75g Gruyère, grated 3 large free range eggs 300ml single cream

3 Lay a piece of foil in the pastry case, shiny side down, and weigh it down with raw rice. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove the foil and rice and bake for another 5 minutes to cook the base. Reduce the oven temperature to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Cook the gammon in a dry frying pan, over a medium heat, for about 4 minutes or until it’s just cooked. Drain off any juices that come out. Add the oil and spring onions and cook for another 2 minutes.

Sprinkle about a quarter of the cheese in the base of the flan case, then scatter the gammon and spring onions on top. Lightly beat the eggs and single cream together and season with pepper. Pour into the flan case and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the filling is just set.

Ingredients for the Chicken…

Method:

8 Pieces Chicken Drumsticks or Thighs (skin on, bone in) 1 Bisto Chicken Stock Melt 1 Medium Onion (peeled and roughly chopped) 1 Red Pepper (seeded and roughly chopped) 3 tbsp Olive Oil 2 cloves Garlic (peeled and chopped) 2 tsp Ground Cumin ½ tsp Ground Cinnamon 1 tsp Ground Paprika 2 tbsp Fresh Coriander 1 Fresh Lime 2 tbsp Tomato Paste 600g (cooked weight) Cous Cous

1 In a bowl, mix together the cumin, cinnamon, paprika, and grated lime zest. Make three slits in each of the chicken pieces, cutting through the skin and a little way into the flesh. Add to the bowl with the spices. 2 Add the rest of the ingredients (excluding the stock melt) and mix so that all the chicken and vegetables are well coated. If time allows, leave to marinade for about an hour. 3 Place into a baking tray big enough to spread everything out evenly and into a preheated oven at 180°C (160 fan). Roast for 10 minutes, remove, and add the stock melt to the tray. As it melts, stir it into the chicken and vegetables. Return to the oven and roast for another 20 – 25 minutes until the chicken is nicely browned, cooked through and piping hot. 4 Cook cous cous following the pack instructions, replacing water with vegetable stock and add chopped coriander.

How to sow seeds

1

Fill seed trays or small pots with multipurpose compost – break up any lumps with your fingers or use a garden sieve if you have one. Gently firm the soil with your hand or use a tamping tool.

2

Sprinkle your seeds over the compost thinly, or follow pack instructions. Cover them with a fine layer of compost.

3 4

Place in a propagator, a clear plastic bag or cover with a piece of glass. Place on a warm window sill. Remove the cover once the seeds have germinated.

5

WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO GROW YOUR PLANTS FROM SEED Clean pots or seed trays; fresh multipurpose compost; plastic labels; propagators (or clear plastic bags/pieces of glass); seeds; and a little patience! 66 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | MARCH 2013

Poke in labels with the plants’ names and the planting date. Water gently.

When the seedlings are big enough to handle, transplant them into individual pots. Once it gets warmer, gradually acclimatise them before planting outside.

*ONLINE ONLY

It’s sow easy! Whether you’re a seasoned gardener, a novice or want to get your kids interested, growing your own flowers and vegetables from seed is the easiest and cheapest ways to get masses of plants. Sowing seeds indoors now will give you a head start and you’ll have strong, healthy plants to transplant out once the weather improves.

According to charity Asthma UK, 75 per cent of hospital admissions relating to asthma could be avoided if asthmatics were in better control of their condition.

And if you aren’t able to get to your own doctor, visit your Asda pharmacist for a consultation and you may be able to buy your inhaler without a prescription**. Also, don’t forget to use our new inhaler recycling scheme to dispose of your old one for free. There are 253 Asda in-store pharmacies in the UK, all with private consultation rooms. They’re all open seven days a week until late, including bank holidays, so you can pop in when it suits you.

WORDS: MARILYN WRIGHT. PHOTOGRAPH: GETTY IMAGES

Fast-track 8 BEAUTY 1 We all struggle with finding ‘me time’ but our mini makeovers will have you looking gorgeous and feeling great – and they all take less than 10 minutes

MINUTE

HOME FACIAL

Remove any impurities with a cream cleanser. Tip Massage the cleanser using upward and circular motions to boost circulation. Wipe off with a damp flannel.

2

Exfoliate with a face scrub to remove any dead skin cells. We love using Olay Smoothing Face Scrub, £2 (150ml). Tip Wipe off the face scrub with a hot flannel to open your pores.

3

Apply a facemask. Leave on for two minutes to let it seep in. The Montagne Jeunesse range (from 75p until 4 April) is great for all skin types. Tip Cream or gel masks are best for dry skin as they’re good for hydration. For oily skin, try clay-based formulas, which soak up excess oil.

4

Moisturise. Use a cream with SPF during the day to protect against UVA rays and a nourishing, rich cream at night. Try Asda Skin System SPF 15 Day Cream & Night Cream, £2 (2 x 25ml).

PROBLEM SOLVED Your beauty dilemmas sorted in an instant A BROKEN NAIL Dab some nail glue onto the break, press together, then leave to dry before buffing smooth with a nail file. PUFFY EYES Place a chilled spoon directly over the puffy area to deflate under-eye bags. FLAKY LIPS For smooth lips, apply lip balm before buffing them gently with a dry toothbrush. LIMP HAIR Spritz the roots of your hair with a dry shampoo, then massage it into your scalp for an immediate boost of volume. DULL SKIN Mix some highlighter with your foundation or moisturiser for a dewy glow. TIRED EYES Use an eyelash curler on your lashes to make your eyes look wider and brighter – finish off with mascara. 78 | ASDA.COM/MAGAZINE | MARCH 2013

MINUTE BODY SMOOTHER

1

In the shower use a body scrub, such as St Ives Apricot Body Scrub, £5 (300ml), to buff away any rough patches of skin. Tip Buff in circular motions to improve your circulation.

2

5

Apply a body lotion as soon as you step out of the bath. E45 Intense Recovery Lotion, £6 (400ml) is great for dry skin. Tip Do this while your skin is stilll damp to lock in moisture.

Take off nail varnish with a remover. Asda Skin System Nail Varnish Remover, £1 has added conditioner for healthy nails.

2

Tidy up cuticles for a groomed look. Tip An easy way to do this is apply a drop of hair conditioner to the corner of a flannel and gently push the cuticles back.

3

File each nail to the same length. Always file in one direction, working from the sides to the centre.

4 5

Rub olive oil onto the nails and cuticles to keep them hydrated.

Moisturise with plenty of nourishing hand cream. One of our favourites is Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Fast Absorbing Hand Cream, £4 (75ml).

10 1

MINUTE PEDICURE

Soak feet in warm water for a minute. Exfoliate with a foot scrub, then use a foot file to buff away hard skin. The N-Spa Complete Foot Care File, £1.60 works wonders.

3

Apply a base coat of nail polish, then a quick drying varnish such as Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish, £3.68 (8ml). Finally, paint on a top coat to prevent the varnish from chipping and help it last longer.

2

Moisturise with a rich foot cream to make them smooth. Scholl Dry Skin Instant Recovery Cream, £5.99 (60g).

AM to PM IN A FLASH Transform your look from day to night with minimal effort CHIC TOP-KNOT Tie your hair into a high ponytail with a hair band, swirl it into a messy bun and pin into place with hair grips. DRAMATIC EYES Take a soft, black kohl pencil along your upper lash line, then smudge it gently with a cotton bud for a smoky effect that’s great for evenings. GLOW GIRL Liven up a tired looking complexion by sweeping a rosy-hued blusher over the apples of your cheeks – it will make you look younger, too. STATEMENT LIPS Use a bold coloured lipstick such as neon pink for a modern, playful look. ACCENTUATE YOUR FEATURES Dab some highlighter onto the cheekbones, brow bones and décolletage.
