We transplanted them last year. They used to be in the donkey paddock, but it wasn't really practical and there were far too many of them! So we transplanted what we need and put them round the avocado orchard. When they started to grow the ducks, unfortunately, ate them and stamped all over them so we had to close off that area and now they've grown up beautifully. The plants are so healthy looking.
This morning Lloyd picked the first couple and they are gorgeous!
the easiest way is
put into boiling water with a splash of vinegar.
Simmer for about 20 mintutes
When the outside woodiest leaves come off with a gentle tug, serve on a plate with a bowl of melted garlicy butter.
Remove the leaves one by one and dip in the butter then scrape the fleshy bit with your teeth!
By the time you reach the middle, you'll have had almost enough. Scrape out the hairy choke and throw it away. Underneath it is the best bit - the heart. Dip in garlicy butter and eat before any one else can!
