Tuscan Kale

Raymond from Freemans Reach, north of Sydney, will have Tuscan Kale, great in a creamy Carbonara sauce over pasta.

This is the first supply in large numbers he’s been able to bring to the market, with most of his crop of silverbeet, beetroot, broccoli and cauliflower having slowed down to a crawl thanks to the prolonged cold snap.

His income over the past month is down a massive 70% on the same time last year, and we know of several local growers who are doing it tough right now.  So we support them where we can.

Carbonara Sauce without cream
 
This is great to serve with Tuscan Kale which is softer and can be steamed or stirfried.
