Organic dandelion leaves, grown on our Devon farm, offer welcome pep for stew-jaded winter palates. They aren’t just pesky weeds! Enjoy their fresh bitterness raw in salads balanced by a good, sharp dressing, or wilt into creamy pasta sauces to cut through the richness.

Cooking

Enjoy in an elegant French-style salad with crispy bacon, soft-boiled eggs and a mustardy vinaigrette. Or give Guy’s favourite a try: blanch the leaves, add them to sautéed garlic and chilli along with a dash of cream. Serve with linguine or spaghetti and lots of Parmesan.

Storage

Delivered from our farm, so wash before eating. Keep in the bottom of the fridge - best eaten as fresh as possible.

Season

We grow the Italiko Rosso variety; an Italian chicory with a distinctive red midrib. It becomes too bitter in the summer months, so we stick to winter, and grow it in the polytunnels on our Devon farm.

Country of origin

Grown in the United Kingdom.
