Name this vegetable?
Sometimes they sneak in some free gifts to keep the customers happy. Works a charm.
I spend a good 5 to 10 minutes during work every Tuesday just getting excited about coming home to my box. It’s a great way to feel cheery despite going cross-eyed in front of a computer screen.
My box has added some vegetables to my diet that I would never choose myself. We’ve had seven varieties of cabbage, beets, green cauliflower, chard, purple carrots (warning: they bleed), pak choi…I love vegetables. Also, organic carrots and potatoes are out of this world in flavor.
Today we got Black Salsify! AKA…a twig?
1) Shave them
2) Slice them thin, diagonally, with some garlic
3) Place in a small saucepan with a knob of butter, a quarter cup of water, some blobs of honey, and pepper. You could add cinnamon or nutmeg in a particularly adventurous moment.
4) Simmer away until eatably soft.
5) Grunt in enjoyment-by-forkful.
