Product Details

Directions For Use

There are two common preparations of Puntarella. The leafy greens and shoots are served raw in a rich dressing of anchovies, olive oil, garlic and lemon juice or white wine vinegar. The assertiveness of the dressing compliments the sharp flavours of Puntarella. The other method is also very traditional. The sprouts and greens are julienned into thin strips and soaked in ice cold water with or without lemon juice. The slices curl up, bitter flavours mellow and the Puntarella becomes succulent. Complimentary pairings include feta, olives, bacon, caviar, cream based dressings, forest mushrooms, gorgonzola or ripening cheeses, green onions, basil and mint.
