Puntarelle

A Roman Treasure

Puntarelle is best known in Rome. Even there this delicious vegetable is often mistaken for a weed. A member of the chicory family, puntarelle has a bitter undertone and its stems are tender yet crisp.

Preparation:

Puntarelle is served frequently as a cold salad with anchovy dressing. Split and pared into strips, chilled in cold water to crisp and curl. It can also be used in a stir-fry with stems thinly sliced and tossed with chopped anchovies, garlic and olive oil. Its slightly bitter taste pairs well with foods that are rich and hearty.

Availability:

Royal Rose Puntarelle is a seasonal item generally available between November and late February.
