How to prepare

Combine broccoli with sizzling bacon strips and toss through pasta. Or steam, drizzle with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon, then finish with a scrunch of pepper and salt. We love to melt a few canned anchovy fillets in their preserving oil over a low heat, then stir the savoury mix through tender blanched broccoli for a piquant side.

Storage

Delivered from our farm, so wash before cooking. Keep cool in a larder or fridge.
