Sawmill Brewery are celebrating the onset of cooler weather with some new releases: the Red IPA is a rich, red beer with citrus, berry and stonefruit characters; Baltic Porter has subtle roasted malts and aromas of dark fruit, toffee and berries. Cuddle up with a velvety Chocolate Stout with an aroma of earthy cocoa and dark berry fruit and a creamy, sweet finish with a touch of bitterness. RRP is $10.50 and they are available in good liquor shops.

Cashews are crunchier with the skins left on, they’re delicious and have extra fibre, too. A new addition to Alison’s Pantry, cashews in skin are $38.90-$39.90 per kg from the self-selection bins at New World and Pak’n Save supermarkets.
