Black tuscan kale ready now in Cornwall

Several local market gardeners are now growing this lovely type of cabbage so grab it while you can.I bought mine from a stall in St Dominick.Look out for it in veg shops too.In St Dominick it was just 50p for a great big bunch (that's £5 in Waitrose !!)

When you get it home wash it well and discard all of the large stalks as they will be very tough.You can keep the smaller ones.

To cook it simpy cut up and steam or stir fry adding ginger lemon garlic and salt as you like.Or just salt if you like plain food!

My favourite way to cook it is to cook it up with a chopped onion and small pot of  double cream.

First cook onion in olive oil then add kale and cook another 5 mins then add cream and seasoning.Black pepper, garlic, paprika and chillies all work well. You can then stir in some cooked pasta to make a tasty supper dish or serve it alongside other dishes and potaoes.Really quick but good enough for a dinner party!

Oh i nearly forgot add a handful of chopped roasted hazelnuts just before you stir in the pasta.Pinenuts or walnuts would work too.
