  • Kalettes for everyone in this week’s veg boxes

    Posted on November 12th, 2021 charlotte No comments

    Kalettes are a cross between Brussels sprouts and kale with a sweet and nutty flavour. We’ve discovered they’re much easier to grow in Cornwall than Brussels sprouts. Although a little bit fiddly to pick they’ve fast become a favourite in our veg boxes.

    Several of our volunteers make traditional chutneys and pickles for us every year from gluts of various fruits and vegetables. First up this autumn are spiced pears and piccalilli.

    In all the veg boxes:-
