Kalettes are – and we don’t use the word lightly – a very cute veg. A traditional cross-pollination hybrid between Brussels sprouts and kale, they grow the same way as sprouts – but instead of mini cabbages, it’s kale-like florets that spring up on the stalk. Not just a novelty, kalettes are good fun in the kitchen; they’re full of sweet, nutty flavour, and might even act as a gateway drug for the much-maligned sprout!

How to store kalettes

Delivered from our farm, so wash before cooking. Keep in the fridge.

How to cook kalettes

These tiny brassicas can be cooked in a number of ways. They require less prep than Brussels sprouts, and cook quicker: simply trim away the base of the florets, then steam, stir-fry, or season well and roast. They are cooked when the stalk feels tender.

Grower Info

These kalettes were grown for us by Jim Skevington on Lower Washbourne Farm – the Skevington family farm for over 50 years. Lower Washbourne is just moments down the road from us in Devon, and Jim is a founding member of our organic farming co-operative: the South Devon Organic Producers (or SDOP). As well as veg, Jim farms small herds of suckler cows, ewes, and geese for the Christmas market.
