Borecole, or “Winter Greens” stands the severest winter weather and provides cooked greens through winter and into early spring, sending up tender new growth long before other crops have sprouted. Frost improves flavor.
The leaves are eaten boiled, steamed, and sauteed. Frequently added to stews and soups. Unopened flower clusters can be used like broccoli, with an added flavor of asparagus.
