New Year, and new things
Here is the first harvest of our season - Broccoli that we ate on New Year's Eve. What a feast. It tastes... different... than store bought. Really. More mellow. Not as strong. Sweet? I am getting tired of my home grown veggie descriptions as 'sweet', but frankly, I can't figure out another word to use.
Another thing that you can do with freshly cut broccoli - is use much more of the stem than you can with store bought. It's not woody like what you find at the grocery.
