Puntarelle Romane 1 lb

Puntarelle Romane 1 lb


The Puntarelle Romane is a wonderful Italian green that belongs to the chicory family.  It tastes something like a sharp endive with a hint of fennel.  To the unknowing eye it may look strange, almost like a big weed, the leaves look like the dandelion leaves. Puntarelle has become very popular in the New York City culinary scene in the last few years.

Suggestion: The famous Roman Puntarelle salad recipe - Crush the anchovies and garlic in a mortar until they become a paste. Blend in the oil, the lemon juice, a pinch of salt and pepper. Let the Puntarelle soak in ice cold water for half an hour (this causes them to curl and become juicy and tender). Drain the Puntarelle, place them on a large bowl, toss with the sauce, and serve!
