Product information

Ocado Cavolo Nero.

"Sometimes known as Tuscan Kale or – and this might get your kids to eat their greens! – Dinosaur Kale, Cavolo Nero (it means black cabbage in Italian) is not as coarse as the homegrown curly kale I was brought up on, and is quicker to prepare, too: it’s easy to strip the leaves off each stem, and its gorgeous minerally flavour is less full-on, but still magnificent. You need add, once it’s been boiled in salted water and drained, add no more than salt, pepper and butter or oil,  but I recommend you warm some oil in a pan, stir in some anchovy fillets until they seem to melt into the oil, add some minced garlic and dried chilli flakes, stir for a minute or so, and then add the drained, cooked cavolo nero to the pan. And if you add a poached or fried egg, you have a great, easy dinner! I also like to add the leaves, torn into bite-sized pieces, for the last minutes of cooking time to any pasta I’m making, whatever the sauce I’m using to dress the pasta." Nigella Lawson

Mostly covered in powdery mildew

Looked fine until I went to use it, most of the leaves were covered in white powdery mildew, probably due to being grown in damp and crowded conditions. Not impressed with this.
