Harvest box #11 – Last box for of the season

This is the last harvest box of the season. It was great to be able to share vegetables grown by our volunteers with you. More to come in 2022!

  • Radicchio, also called the Italian lettuce, can be roasted or used fresh in a salad. So many options to prepare it from “Smoked mackerel loaded leaves” to “Winter leaf & parsnip salad with walnuts”
  • the season is almost over in the polytunnel and not all tomatoes had time to ripen. You can still eat them as a chutney or fried.
  • Sauteed is the quickest way to enjoy your chard, but you can try a new recipe : Crispy swiss chard with mascarpone-creamed spinach.
  • More edible greens! For your broccoli leaves, nice and easy, stir fry themhttps://www.justapinch.com/recipes/side/vegetable/broccoli-greens.html.
  • Although the weather is not very warm, you can use your mixed salad leaves to make a chickpea salad.
  • Fennel has many properties, enjoy it in your tea! Or do you prefer the smell of feverfew? You can drink it as well !
  • Oregano is usually used in tomato based sauce for pizza or spaghettis! It brings nice flavour to your dishes :).
  • We know how to eat our grapes, but you can also include them in your salad. Chop some of your radishes in it too!
  • Fennel seeds are aromatic and perfect to use in your cooking. What would you prefer: Fennel & Rice Soup or Fennel-Crusted Salmon on White Beans?
  • Edible flowers: Alyssum, Nasturtium!
