Owners of CSA shares may feel awash in a sea of greens this time of year and making a constant effort to serve greens. It's a tough sell chez Wood. I'd like to hug the farmer who thought up turnip green rapini and kale raab, both of which I bought this year at the West Nashville Farmers' Market.
Both are the young shoots of turnip and kale, both are more mellow and mild than their adult versions.
I quizzed a farmer about turnip green rapini, and he said he uses the ordinary Seven Top turnip greens variety and just keeps cutting the greens while they're still shoots.
Nice innovation that I'll keep coming back to buy. Did anyone else try kale raab or turnip green rapini? What else can be done with them?
