Purple Leaf Tree Collard Cutting
LOCAL PICKUP ONLY
This is a listing for a ***rooted cutting*** of a Purple Leaf Tree Collard Cutting aka Kale Tree. It takes some time for the tree to grow, but one mature you will never have to buy Kale again :)
I have purchased a Purple Leaf Tree Collard Cutting a few seasons ago and now have a few rooted cutting that I'm happy to offer here.
Tree collards are fun to cook with, and can be used raw or cooked in any recipes that call for kale, collards or cabbage, and are especially good in soup and sauces! They take a bit longer to cook than kale. You can also eat the stems. They are generally twice as sweet as the leaves and are nutritious as well.
A few ways to cook them:
Salad: Finely chopped raw tree collard leaves may be added to salads, but because they tend to be tougher it is nice to massage the leaves with some vinegar or citrus juice.
Sautéed: Stack your tree collard leaves in a pile and roll them together to create a tight bundle – this makes chopping a whole lot easier! In a large skillet sauté some finely sliced garlic and add the tree collards. Cook on high heat for about 3 minutes. You may also want to add some balsamic vinegar or red wine when the pan is very hot to add some flavor!
Steamed: Sauté onion and garlic in large pot. Add chopped tree collard leaves and a small amount of water. Cover pot closely. Stir after about five minutes and continue steaming until tender.
