Purple sprouting broccoli has always been an absolute favourite of mine. The purple haze in Ash & Kate's garden is a wonderful crop of purple sprouting broccoli and just the best I've ever tasted.. Despite plummeting temperatures, it survives, to give us the most wonderful nourishment. A big bowl cooked with warming spices was shared at lunch this week and quite delicious. Full of anti-oxidants to ward off flu & colds and spices to keep us warm in the chilly Winter months.
