Organic Hungry Gap kale
Tender fronds on a robust rib, bursting with character and flavour – not to mention vitamins.
Hungry Gap kale is named for the period after winter crops have dwindled, but before spring crops are ready to harvest. It’s a lean time on UK farms… But this variety continues to crop late into the season, offering a welcome glimmer of homegrown greens. Tender fronds on a robust rib, bursting with character and flavour – not to mention vitamins.

How to prepare
This is one of the sweeter and more delicate varieties of kale. It can be used raw in salads or whizzed into green smoothies. If you’re cooking it, it’s best lightly steamed or braised then lavished with butter, a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of salt as a simple side. Or wilt at the last minute into hearty peasant-style soups and stews.
Delivered from the farm, so wash before eating. Best kept in the fridge and eaten within a few days.
Grown by Riverford on Wash Farm, Buckfastleigh, Devon
