Potatoes are a versatile crop and can be grown in all sorts of climates. Norfolk, England is one of the most popular potato growing regions in Europe. Norfolk Keeper potatoes are small potatoes that were traditionally not used during winter months because they would rot before they could be harvested again. This was until one farmer decided to store some new potatoes for an experiment and found them to taste great!
Norfolk Keepers: Harvested in September and available right through winter
Norfolk Keepers are harvested from September and available right through the winter until the spring. Currently available via our local free delivery service. Our Norfolk Keepers are carefully selected and supplied washed in a 750g retail pack.

Oven roasted Asparagus
Dates couldn’t be sweeter/better for you! They have a ton of health benefits, from heart to strengthening your bones (We care about our customers)
The next time you’re craving something sweet, instead of grabbing some sweets, opt for dates instead. They’re just as sweet and a lot better for you. This natural treat is a delicious source of fiber, with high concentrations of potassium and vitamin A, among other vitamins and minerals. Here are ten reasons I can think of that you’ll want to add dates to your shopping cart from us at Norfolk in a box
1. Boost Energy
Dates are high in natural sugars, so if you need a quick burst of energy mid-day, instead of going for a second cup of coffee go for a handful of dates.
2. Relieve Intoxication & Prevent a Hangover
Did you have one too many Norfolk ciders or Norfolk vodkas on your weekends off? Pop a few dates when you get home (or carry them with you while you’re out). The high concentration of fructose in dates is thought to help speed the metabolism of alcohol and could bring relief if you’re feeling the effects of one too many drinks. If you still end up with a hangover the next morning, try having them as a snack when you wake up or even with some of our Norfolk jumbo oats.
3. Strengthen Bones
Most people know that getting enough sunlight is vital for bone health, but the combination of minerals like magnesium and copper that are packed into dates make them a superfood for strengthening bones, too. Whether you are looking to fight off existing osteoporosis or bulk up your bones as a preventative measure, dates could help.
4. Relieve Constipation
Another one of the benefits of dates is that they are high in soluble fiber, which promotes healthy and comfortable digestion. If you’re suffering from constipation, try incorporating dates into your diet and don’t forget to drink extra water.
5. Promote Heart Health
Consistently making Healthy dinners from our Norfolk in a box range is one way to help your ticker, but dates are high in potassium, which is essential to keeping your heart health in tip-top shape, too.
6. Reduce Inflammation
Magnesium is a mineral known for its anti-inflammatory properties, and you can definitely get your share of it in dates! A study with our 37000 people show that a diet rich in magnesium was associated with a lower concentration of markers of inflammation in post menopausal women.
7. Reverse Anemia
If you’re iron-deficient, dates are a great way to help you get back on track. A single serving contains about 1 mg of the necessary mineral, and remember (It’s even vegan friendly)
8. Encourage Weight Gain
If you struggle to put on pounds, dates are a healthy way to increase your body weight. While they’re packed with nutrients, they’re also packed with calories. A serving of four dates is just under 270 calories.
9. Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
If you’re the type of person who can never get enough sugar, dates are a great alternative to unhealthy treats. Keep a pack on hand to help curb your cravings. Then again keep ordering our Norfolk made chocolate, the gnaw brand is something we all love here at Norfolk in a box.
10. Lower Cholesterol
If you’re looking for a way to bring your cholesterol down, dates are good source of soluble fiber, which can help reduce cholesterol as part of a healthy diet along side our Norfolk veg boxes with some home cooking will help.

Here’s how to grill your Norfolk asparagus without some ending up charred and others ending up crunchy spears and still others slipping through the grill rack. This easy approach relies on a reliable and simple technique of skewering several spears together into a raft of sorts, which makes it easier to flip the Norfolk asparagus and to ensure all the spears are evenly cooked until slightly charred on the outside and tender-but-still-firm on the inside.
Prepare a hot grill and oil the grill rack. Bring a large pot or wide saucepan of salted water to a boil. Fill a large bowl halfway with salted ice water.
Holding an Norfolk asparagus spear in your hands, with one end in each hand, bend the spear until it snaps near the stem end. Toss the stem end in the compost and set the spear aside. Repeat with the remaining Norfolk asparagus.
Toss all the spears in the boiling water for 1 minute and then, using tongs, plunge them in the ice water for 30 seconds. Drain and dry the Norfolk asparagus. Place the spears flat on a cutting board and line up the tips. Meanwhile, if using bamboo skewers, place them in the hot blanching water for a few minutes to help prevent them from burning on the grill.
About 1 inch (2 1/2 cm) from the bottom of a spear, push a skewer perpendicular through the center of its spear. Pass the skewer through 5 more spears. Repeat this step with another skewer, pushing it through the 6 spears about 1 inch below their tips. You will end up with a raft of 6 spears connected by skewers at the top and bottom. Continue in this way to make the remaining rafts. Brush each asparagus raft with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper on both sides.
Grill/BBQ the Norfolk asparagus rafts until they’re slightly charred, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Serve with the lemon wedges on the side for squeezing.
