This week we have some beautiful spigarello from Ho Farms.
Spigarello is a primitive heirloom varietal of the broccoli family and is native to Southern Italy. Spigarello is a variety of leaf broccoli, is related to broccoli rabe, and looks like a cross between kale and broccoli. The taste is similar to broccoli, with the leaves having a mild taste and the texture is succulent and crunchy.
It is recommended to trim the stems and the leaves can be enjoyed as a salad green, wilting green or soup green.
Remove any twist ties/rubber bands and sprinkle with water. Store in a plastic bag in the fridge. If the greens are larger than the bag you have, then trim the stems if you can to fit it in the bag.
What else is in the bag?
