A leafy vegetable from the chicory family, escarole is similar to endive or frisée. Escarole, however, has longer, curlier leaves which vary in taste depending on where they are in the bunch. The outer, greener leaves tend to be a bit tougher and more bitter, so they lend themselves well to cooking. Like a lot of chicories, escarole is traditional in Italian food, so try those outer leaves simmered into an Italian wedding soup, or sautée them with garlic, oil and white beans for a hearty winter dish. The inner, yellower leaves are more tender with a milder flavor that is excellent raw. They add texture taste great paired in a salad with fruit or pungent cheeses like goat or blue.
Ironbound Farm is dedicated to growing healthy food, which is produced using resilient ecological stewardship. They are a transitional organic farm--meaning they are converting conventional farmland into organic--and never use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. Ironbound practices regenerative farming in order to restore and transition the land. Specifically, they use farm-made compost and compost teas, minimize soil disturbance through tillage, and integrate livestock into their farm to provide fertility and pest management. They also practice cover cropping and agroforestry while focusing on perennial crops, reintroducing native plants, and planting wildflower meadows to attract and support beneficial insects (like bees!).
