Love bitter flavours? Introducing organic puntarelle, a type of chicory. With strong flavoured outer leaves and milder inner shoots, this veg is popular in Italian markets, but very rare on home turf. The dark, serrated outer leaves are the strongest, bitter flavoured part. They’re often discarded but we recommend wilting them down as greens. The lighter coloured inner core is the prized part – tender and much milder. Try shredding into salads, doused with a punchy dressing.

how to store puntarelle

Store as you would spinach, kale or other greens. Keep in the fridge in a plastic bag. It’ll be good for 3-4 days.
