TIPS ON HOW TO PREPARE

Crapaudine Beetroot

The dark flesh can stain your hands, so gloves are recommended. This variety can be used much like any other variety of beetroot, utilised in sweet and savoury cooking. Peel to remove the tough outer skin prior to eating raw, roasted and pureéd, sauteé with red cabbage for a delicious side dish, or roasted and served with soft cheeses like burrata or Laverstoke mozzarella. 

Tenderstem Broccoli 

Place into boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes until the stem is just tender. These can be served straight away or placed into ice water to stop the cooking process.

Quince

Poach the quince in a sweet liquid with sugar, honey, star anise and whole cloves and simmer for 40-50 minutes, until they are pink and tender. Strain the quince from the poaching liquid and add to crumbles or desserts. You can also refrigerate the quince in the poaching liquid for up to 7 days.
