Salsify, cultivated in the rich soils of France, is a lesser-known root vegetable prized for its delicate flavor and culinary versatility. This 5kg package contains a bountiful supply of salsify, each root featuring a long, slender shape with a dark brown skin. Despite its unassuming appearance, salsify offers a unique taste reminiscent of oysters, earning it the nickname "oyster plant." With a subtle sweetness and delicate texture, salsify is perfect for roasting, sautéing, or adding to soups and stews.


🌱 Flavor Profile: Delicate and subtly sweet, with hints of nuttiness and a mild oyster-like taste. 🌱 Texture: Firm and fibrous when raw, tender and creamy when cooked.
