It’s surprising what you can dig out of your garden at this time of year. Here you can see my recent Autumn salad harvest which includes: the blanched Endive, first Corn Salad, the last of the 4 Seasons lettuce and (amazingly) a cucumber! Not bad for a late October day. A couple of weeks ago I tied up some Endive in my first attempt at blanching – wow what a success that was? It not only worked but the plants have produced some of the best tasting Endive I’ve ever had. The shops never sell Endive by itself. Normally, the only place you’ll find it is inside bags of vacuum packed salad leaves. This has been my only experience of Endive and because of that I was under the impression that Endive was half white with green tips and tasted quite bitter. But my Endive is completely white, all the way through (after you have discarded the outer leaves), and it tastes divine! So sweet that you could eat a whole salad of nothing but Endive and not come across one bitter-tasting leaf. I’m so impressed with them that I’ll be growing more next year.
