We found several interesting items at the Santa Barbara Farmers Market. Pictured above is Spigariello Kale. Our research revealed that this is a form of kale, here is the explanation:
"Spigariello is a traditional southern Italian specialty sometimes referred to as a "leaf broccoli." It is grown like broccoli rabe in that it does not make a central broccoli "head", but the flavor is much less pungent than rabe. The narrow, very dark green leaves develop a wonderful wavy, curvy, twisting form as the plant matures. The hearty flavor is a cross between broccoli leaves and Tuscan kale or collards."
Pictured above is kohlrabi also known as German turnip. They are the purple variety and taste the same as the green ones. Here is more on kohlrabi from Boston organics including recipes.
No explanation needed for these lovely freshly picked snow peas from Tutti's produce.
Daikon and sweet potato varieties were beautifully arranged at Milliken farms.
Wishing you all an abundance of Saturday Smiles! Enjoy your weekend!
