Country of origin:   Local grower - Hairspring           Weight: Bunch

Facts:Watercress is, as the name suggests, grown in spring water and is a peppery "super-food" full of nutrients - it has 15 essential vitamins and minerals.  It contains more vitamin C than oranges, more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach and more folate than bananas, and a 2010 study has shown that watercress may have the ability to suppress breast cancer cell development.  You can't beat that!!

Storage: Keep in the salad drawer of the fridge.

Preparation and cooking:
Wash before use.  Watercress can be used in many things, from simple salads to soups to being used with pasta, fish, sauces or stir-frys. It can also be added to mashed potato or used in pesto.  It is also great with marmite sandwiches!  It can also be juiced.
