Super Local Broccoli
Here is the first of our local ‘Super’ Broccoli, but because Joey is picking only limited numbers at this stage, we’ve put them on as a Feature Veg rather than put it in everyone’s bag.
These stalks are pretty big again, as we’ve come to expect of the Camilleris. Their broccoli eats beautifully, but because it is not hydro-cooled straight away (i.e. put in ice water), it only keeps for 4-5 days before it starts flowering. So eat it sooner rather than later.
The bunch can be eaten stem and all. Sautee, steam or boil the sliced broccoli stem separately from the rosette.
Grown by Joey in Freeman’s Reach.
