– Spigarello is an Italian heirloom variety of broccoli with lineage in both the broccoli and kale families. When mature, it can produce edible flowers, but never florets like regular broccoli. The flavor is mild, grassy and sweet, without the characteristic bitterness of many of its cruciferous cousins. The greens can be used in a similar way to kale, so toss it in salads, soups, and sautees.
– The garlic has not been cured yet. You will still want to remove what will become the papery wrapper before using.
