Cornish Earlies in the veg boxes

May 20, 2010

We have some more of those small Cornish Early new potatoes to enjoy in our vegetable boxes this week. They come from the milder climes of Penwith in west Cornwall, which is always the first UK region to lift new potatoes in the spring. We’ve also got another bunch of that delicious Cornish asparagus.

In all the veg boxes we can expect: –
Cornish Early new potatoes (Penwith)
Cornish asparagus (Lower Croan, Sladesbridge)
cauliflower (West Cornwall)
* spinach (Jeremy Brown)
* salad bag (Jeremy)

The standard boxes will also contain: –
* green garlic (Jeremy)
as well as extra potatoes and salad leaves

Green garlic is also known as “wet” garlic.  Wash and then slice the whole plant like a leek, then use it to flavour as normal. Jeremy warns that this batch is rather strong!

* = grown to organic principles
