Sea Kale

Its the new stalks you want to eat, not the big leaves like this, dig down into the shingles a little to get white stalk and new shoots. Be careful not to damage the plant when digging around it and replace the shingle afterwards.


  1. Although the tradition seems to eat the blanched stalks, we have picked the flowering stems around this time of year, from a certain pebble beach(!)- they look just like brocoli,but with a blue tinge. Boiled for a few minutes and served with butter.
