VEG BOX MCR have been supplying the people of the city and its suburbs with weekly fresh fruit and vegetables throughout 2020 and this December they’ve launched a special box to help with the making of your Christmas Dinner.
Like a lot of great ideas, VEG BOX MCR is a project that started during lockdown, something to help people have access to quality fruit and vegetables without needing to head down to a supermarket, queue up for ages and then get COVID from a fella in the cheese aisle.
Even better, alongside the fruit and vegetables are a host of recipe ideas, to encourage and inspire people to cook new dishes and try new produce.
With what is probably the most important meal of the year (maybe even more so this year!), when it comes to the Christmas Dinner – preparation is key. So they’ve created a special Christmas Box (£25) that’s full of everything you’re going to need, plus a couple of recipe ideas too!
In it you’ll find;
– 2kg Cheshire Potatoes
– 1kg Carrots
– 1kg Parsnips
– Brussels Sprouts
– Red & White Onions
– Red Cabbage
– Mixed Grapes
– Limes & Lemons
Perfect for your extra-crispy goose fat roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese, Vimto-braised red cabbage, honey roasted carrots and parsnips, cheesy leek and potato mash, bacon and chestnut roasted Brussels Sprout, brie and grapes and of course – lemons for the gin & tonics! Mmmm – that’s made me hungry now!
Even better, you can ‘Boost Your Box’ for an extra £17.50 to also include: bunched beetroots, smoked garlic, bouquet garni, 2 punnets of berries, bramley apples, cranberries, chestnuts, medjool dates and organic ceylon true cinnamon sticks.
All of the fruit and vegetables from VEG BOX MCR is super-fresh and sourced from a variety of local farmers and suppliers in Cheshire and Greater Manchester, and it’ll all be delivered fully plastic-free!
Once they’ve finished with the Christmas Boxes, and had a well-deserved short break, VEG BOX MCR will be back delivering their standard boxes from the 9th Jan 2021 – where you can also take advantage of their flexible subscriptions where you can pick up 4 boxes within 8 weeks for just £95.
To get your Christmas Veg Box in time for Christmas Day, you’ll need to pre-order before the 20th December (delivery dates are 23rd & 24th Dec) – which you can do by emailing (below) or messaging them on Facebook or Instagram…
