Web Chef Review: Ontario Broccoli at Harvest Barn Country Markets

Ontario Broccoli is in season at Harvest Barn Country Markets – so green, crispy and beautiful to cook and eat.

Web Chef Review: Ontario Broccoli at Harvest Barn Country Markets - cookingwithkimberly.comThis healthy-looking broccoli came from my local Harvest Barn Country Market in Niagara-on-the-Lake, one of their two locations. The other is located in St. Catharines, in Southern Ontario.

This is how my broccoli came, with the tender stalk and florets protected by the thicker outer leaves. Usually when you purchase broccoli, it has been trimmed with the outer leaves removed.

However, the outer leaves are edible as well as the thicker stalks.  You will likely wish to peel the stalks and cut off the very ends, but the rest of the stalks are just as tender when cooked as the main stalk, which I also peel before I use it.

If you decide not to eat the stalks outright, they make a wonderful addition to soups & stews. Just put them in a resealable plastic bag and store them in your freezer until such time as you make a stock or soup, then just cook them with your other stock veggies, as they really boost the robust flavor of any stock or soup.

broccoliThis Ontario grown broccoli is so pretty and the florets look so perky and fresh, that they look like a veggie picture. They could make a lovely centerpiece for your table.

The most important thing is that the Ontario grown broccoli from Harvest Barn is very delicious, packed with amazing flavor eaten fresh and raw, or cooked as a great vegetable side dish or salad.
