£1.45

A Brussels sprout top from our grower Organic Dan. His sprout stalks are producing perfect crowns of loosely packed leaves, thanks to the clement growing season. Commonly seen as an allotment grower’s perk, the leafy tops are often overlooked in the race to harvest the sprouts in the lead up to Christmas.

It would be criminal for them to go unused, so here’s your chance to sample sprout tops while we have them. Use the leaves in the same way you would cabbage, kale or sprouts. They wilt beautifully in a little oil or butter as a simple side of greens.

Ideas for sprout tops

Remove the stalk and use the leaves in any recipe that calls for cabbage, kale or sprouts. Try in a hearty bowl of Portuguese caldo verde in place of cabbage, wilted and stirred through mashed potato for a simple colcannon, or fried with bacon and chestnuts instead of regular sprouts.
