Harvest Monday - 13 April 2015

By Mwillis
Are you getting bored of seeing photos of Purple Sprouting Broccoli? If so, I'm sorry about that, but PSB is all that my garden is producing at present, so it's PSB or nothing!

On Friday I picked another large batch of it. I think it was about 20 spears. Certainly it was enough for two 2-person servings.

I have been really pleased with the PSB this year, most particularly because it has matured at a steady rate, with the different varieties producing their crop at different times rather than all coming on at once. We have kept pace with it, and also had enough to give some of it away.

Here is a dish that I cooked at the weekend, making use of some of the PSB.
It is pasta in a creamy blue cheese (Roquefort) sauce, with PSB, toasted walnuts and crispy bacon.

Here is the PSB just before being steamed:

My dish was flavoured with a little home-grown Wild Garlic. Just a little, I hasten to add, because it is VERY strong!

I also garnished the dish with a sprinkling of home-grown Chives - so there you go, I did harvest something other than PSB!
This is my contribution to Harvest Monday, hosted as ever by Daphne's Dandelions.
