Veg boxes Friday 14th May

We find ourselves in the darkest recesses of the Hungry Gap, where even our local producers can't help us out with any veg, and the only Britich organic veg on offer from the national wholesaler that we buy from is potatoes. Thankfully last Friday we managed to pull 100 veg boxes out of the bag, all our own produce (except the potatoes), containing a selection from - fresh elephant garlic, new-season kale, mixed herbs, rainbow chard, potatoes, mange-tout, rhubarb, purple sprouting broccoli, and salad leaves.

Harvesting elephant garlic.

Tonight we made a leek, elephant garlic, and lemon risotto, which was delicious. All of the garlic can be used - bulb, leaves, stem, flower bud - with the tougher leaves being used in the stock.
