This Cobbler not only tastes sensational, it’s a great preventative for the winter cold & Flu! Why?. Because New Zealand blackcurrants have 4 x’s the vitamin C of oranges and more antioxidants than blueberries, goji and acai berries… So, go on & get baking… It’s a MUCH better plan than opting for the flu shot, don’t you think!:-)

This is just the best cheesecake recipe!

Gluten Free Version: To make this recipe gluten free, it’s simple – just make sure to buy gluten free biscuits. If you like ginger, I’ve tried the gluten free ginger nuts and they taste great in the cheesecake.

TIP: If you want to be uber organized and make this in advance, you can freeze the cheesecake by wrapping in a double layer of glad wrap and a layer of foil – it will freeze for up to 4 weeks.

White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake

Ingredients

  • 200g chocolate biscuit crumbs
  • 50g butter, melted
  • 360 grams cream cheese

  • 10 g gelatine powder/granules dissolved in 50 ml boiling water, cooled
  • 250 g white chocolate, melted
  • 200 ml Double cream, lightly whipped (best is ‘Lewis Road’ it’s organic- so no additive & stocked at most supermarkets)
  • 150 g frozen *raspberries (do not defrost)
  • 200 g fresh *raspberries
  • icing sugar, to dust
  • 1/2 cup berry jam melted with 2 tbsp boiling water

* You can use any of your favourite berries here. For example, strawberries work great as well.

Directions

  1. Combine the biscuit crumbs and butter and press into the base of a greased 20 cm spring form tin.
  2. Beat the cream cheese and lemon rind using an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in the gelatine mixture and chocolate until smooth, then fold in the cream and frozen raspberries.
  3. Pour the filling on to the prepared crumb base and refrigerate for 3 hours or until set. Just before eating, decorate with raspberries, pour some of the melted jam over and dust with icing sugar.

By Shirley Otton, Tournament Director, Nelson, New Zealand.

Nerves & excitement all round at the start of the Nelson Women's Golf Classic 2016

We are ready for action!

We had a fantastic weekend of golf with great weather reflecting in some good scores.

With 68 players in the field on Saturday and 45 on Sunday there was a good spirit about with everyone having a good time and everything going to plan.

The Sujon Boysenberry juice in the Wendy House at the 15th went down a treat. It was light and refreshing in the hot conditions and just the tonic to calm their nerves and excitement at the chance of winning a car if they holed in one.

It was nice to experience their excitement, but unfortunately, no one holed in one.

The Sujon Frozen berries in the novelty hole prizes were well received, with ladies keen to use them when they got home for a dessert or even make their own juice.

Thank you so much to Sujon Berries for your support and sponsorship.

Eye

WW11 fighter pilots ate bilberry preserves to enhance their night vision. Blackcurrants contain even higher levels of similar compounds found in bilberries.

Blackcurrants upclose with ends      The diets of our forebears were filled with fruits, berries such as blackcurrants, vegetables and meat. While our knowledge and understanding of our health has certainly come a long way, our cave dwelling compatriots were right about one thing – berries. Long established folklore dating back many centuries records that berries were used for their claimed medicinal benefits in alleviating a wide variety of health conditions from sore throats, to cardiovascular conditions, relief of eye strain, cancers, benefits in the onset of aging conditions and even in the treatment of urinary infections. While such claims are being increasingly subjected to careful on-going scientific investigation and scrutiny, there are increasing reports to suggest very real health benefits can arise from consuming berry fruit.

Sue and John in Factory being filmed for Japan campaign

SPREADING THE WORD: Sujon Managing Director John Gibb and Sue Gibb filmed in their Factory for a media campaing in Japan.

Reported benefits around Blackcurrants having a positive impact on eye health and vision is not surprising due to earlier claims that WW11 fighter pilots in the British Royal Air Force (RAF) regularly consumed bilberry preserves because they enhanced their night vision. Blackcurrants contain similar compounds to bilberries but in higher levels. This led to international researchers investigating whether Blackcurrants do have a substantive effect on eyesight. They were excited to find out that Blackcurrants assist eyesight in several ways:

  • Improve eyesight focus
  • Help adapt eyes to darkness
  • Improve blood circulation

This is just the beginning for the humble berry and now further possible health benefits relating to Blackcurrant are being investigated including: Control of diabetes, Prevention of memory loss and slowing down the effects of ageing and disease.

blackProfessor Mark Willems visited Sujon as part of a tour of the NZ Blackcurrant industry. Prof Willems is using Sujon blackcurrant powder for a number of sports-based research projects in 2016. For a summary of his 2015 work check out our website: http://www.sujonpowder.com/latestresearch.htm

Our Sujon powder is also being used in an MBIE-funded NZ-Japan Joint 3 year research programme looking at the potential of blackcurrant phytonutrients to assist in glycation. This research could have huge relevance for metabolic syndrome and diabetes!

Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients sangria
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup brandy
1 cup Sujon blueberries
1 cup Sujon raspberries
1 cup Sujon blackberries
1×750-ml bottle Pinot noir wine
Soda, chilled

Directions
Combine the honey with a tablespoon of water and heat on stovetop or microwave until melted.

In a pitcher, whisk the melted honey with the brandy until evenly combined. Add the berries and stir. Add the wine and stir.

Chill Sangria overnight — or even an hour or two — it really deepens the fruit flavour.

Serve topped with chilled soda (for the sweet tooth you can use ginger ale instead) over ice. Be sure that each serving gets some berries too! Slice the lemon and place one or two slices on top with the mint leaves for garnish.
