Introducing Over-Wintered Broccoli Raab
Spring brings us this special variety of broccoli raab. We discovered it today at the Greenmarket near the United Nations here in midtown Manhattan.
Yuno’s Farms sells their over-wintered broccoli raab for $3 a bunch. The woman running the stand explained that these plants are in the ground all winter.
The snow and cold weather mellow this broccoli raab giving it a flavor the woman running Yuno’s stand describes as “sweet” but still “very meaty.”
It is only available for a couple weeks at the start of spring. They also sell the small small bright yellow flowers from this over-wintered broccoli raab. A fun way add a spark to a salad.
We can’t wait to try it tonight.
