This was in my foodconnect box this week and I don’t know what it is nor how to use it (I can’t find anything in the newsletter or on the website to give me a hint). Sorry about the photos, had to take them with my mobile phone. The AA battery is for scale.
Looks like kale, but it’s lighter than what I’ve grown. What does it taste like?
Looks like oakleaf lettuce to me
Looks like the curley endive i grow………….but bigger:D……slightly bitter to taste but can be used fresh in a salad with a dressing or steamed like spinach.
Possibly a type of Kale called “Walking Stick Cabbage”? :confused:
I think it looks like kale too- the ribs on the leaves look a bit too thick for lettuce.Taste it and see – if its kale it’ll taste a bit cabbagey
Looks like kale to me too – There’s lots of different varieties.
Looks like Kale but the photo might be over exposed, hence it looks a more lettuce colour rather than a darker green?
It’s great steamed in your steamer, as your other veggies. After which, serve with your other steamed veggies or make a fritatta.
So that’s what Kale looks like! I didn’t think to taste it (duh!) but its texture is cabbage-like, and googling for images of Kale brings up quite a few pictures that resemble what I have. Thanks everyone!
I’m getting such an education – last week there was a pomelo in the box, and I’ve now tried swede and parsnip as well 🙂
