Ellie’s Deli

I love a good deli! The fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh bread, eggs, meats and speciality products you just can find anywhere else. The expertise of an owner that lets you try before you buy and actually has a genuine knowledge and love of the goods they are selling. You just cant beat that personal service.

And we now have a great Deli just outside Worcester, run by a very passionate, professional friend of mine, So as you see I’m not biased at all…much…

Now if your looking for all of the above, get yourself down to Ellie’s Deli! Mill farm, Stanford Bridge, Worcester, WR6 6SP, she is open Tuesday-Friday 9am-6pm, Saturday 9am-5pm and Sunday 9am-1pm.
She has been open just over a week and the place is amazing, in the short time we were there, there was a constant stream of customers buying and sampling the fresh produce on offer.

Here’s a little tour…

Beetroot is a super food, it is  part of the chenopod family these include beets, chard, spinach and quinoa. Beetroot is of exceptional nutritional value; especially the greens, which are rich in calcium, iron and vitamins A and C. Beetroots are an excellent source of folic acid and a very good source of fibre, manganese and potassium. You can use all parts of a beetroot. The tops can be cooked in the same way as spinach, or when young eaten such as chard in a salad, and of course the root is plump and versatile.
You can get the red/purple beetroot we all know, but varieties also include golden, candy stripe and white…. so many to experiment with.
