A wizard's staff has... [Feb. 16th, 2017|06:07 pm]

Since it is still winter, the vegetable stall was at the Farmers' Market this morning. They sell the best carrots ever, but this year they have something new -


Sticks of sprouts we know (and I have learned to cook the tops as well as the sprouts, since they are excellent) but purple, frilly sprouts? Why, yes, look at the close-up:

Sprouts (close-up)

Very purple and very frilly. And now it's time to go and cook some for dinner.

ETA (03.03.17): Mystery solved! They are Kalettes, and they are one of the coolest trends of 2017.

Re: very cool

In the north-east of England: part of what's so cool about this is how untypical it is!

Or in this case, a purple frilly flourish on the end - but yes, that's what I was thinking!

That is a delightful new form of sprout--excellent. And I think it could be very fun for children to battle each other (or knight each other) using staffs like that.

Likr mini-cabbages! Just as they look, in fact. (And very tasty).
