This leafy vegetable with coloured stalks is delicious chopped up and used in a stir fry. Strip off the leaves and steam the stalks, adding the leaves later, then when tender, add to the stir- fry.
GOLDEN GLOBE BEETROOT
This is a pale coloured beetroot that, when cooked and with the skin off, looks a bit like an apricot. Treat it just the same as you would ordinary beetroot, it tastes exactly the the same but without the red stain.
Generations of Italians have appreciated cavolo nero as a versatile yet tasty vegetable and now we are growing it here at Broombank! A member of the brassica family, cavolo nero is a popular ingredient in many classic Italian meals from soups to vegetable dishes. Cavolo nero is also known as black cabbage, Tuscan kale, or by its Italian names Lacinato and Nero de Toscana and is a cousin to the popular Italian vegetable Cavolo Fiore. (Ok, so maybe it is just a type of kale, but do try it - eaten raw, it's got a really nice peppery taste and it cooks up well for use as a vegetable.)
This root vegetable is delicious boiled and mixed half and half with mashed tatties. Gives them a hint of celery flavour.
We harvest the roots of the chicory plant in October and force them in the traditional way by burying under sand to keep out the light. By spring, chicons appear. This is the leafy edible bit which is considered a great delicacy.
WHITE SPROUTING BROCCOLI
White sprouting broccoli is a member of the brassica family so is related to cauliflower and the more familiar calabrese type broccoli. It’s become a bit of a speciality with us as it grows so well here. It’s handy too to have a crop that will overwinter to provide a crop in early spring.
