Delicious and Nutritious

This is the time of year when markets and nurseries display the ruffly and exuberant ornamental cabbages, more commonly known as “flowering kales”.  These kales are grown mainly for their ornamental leaves, which are brilliant white, red, pink, lavender, blue or violet in the interior or the rosette. Most plants sold as “ornamental cabbage” are in fact kale and are as edible as any other variety, provided it has not been treated with pesticides or other harmful chemicals.
