So, the broccoli harvests last week...
I used one of the larger heads to make a version of Grilled Broccoli and Bread Salad, but since it was too cold and wet to fire up the grill outside I roasted the broccoli and bread in a 400ºF oven instead and it came out great. The Apollo brokali shoots shown below were simply steamed and served with a topping of a pork sausage and chanterelle ragu that included canned tomato, tomato paste, and sweet pepper conserva from my preserved harvests - no recipe, it was something I put together with ingredients on hand. The Di Ciccio broccoli is destined for a fritatta.
Di Ciccio broccoli has been a regular in my garden for years. It has been a reliable producer of leafy shoots over a long harvest period. Apollo brokali is a relative new comer, I tried it a couple of years ago and it's back again for the fall. It produces nice shoots but over a shorter period of time.
