Broccoli's relative? One we like or don't like?
Hummm, only one way to find out...
Have you seen this product on your grocers shelf?
This was a new one for me.
When I spotted it. I quietly asked myself, "What the heck is broccolette?
The package read "A sweet and tender relative of broccoli". A relative?
I guess we are marketing our vegetables through relations these days,
what happened to individuality?
Was this a good thing or a bad thing?
Out of curiosity I bought a bag.
For insurance, I bought some broccoli too.
I must admit that I can be a bit suspicious of new found vegetables that I have never heard of,
but I'm usually willing to try it at least once and I'm glad I did.
Broccolette cooks up tender and has a naturally sweet flavor. It was so good that I didn't realize that I had "taste tested" almost half (of a two pound bag) before serving it to my family. So, if you see broccolette, give it a try.
