Spring purples


I picked this glorious selection of leaves for dinner, and we had them just lightly steamed, with roast chicken and Rooster potatoes roasted in goose fat. The outer leaves went to the Bluebells, who greeted them with their usual enthusiasm. We were rewarded with five eggs, one of them the largest I think I have ever seen from a chicken - it will be a double-yolker for sure.

Are they home grown in Northumberland?

They are indeed, M&M, and an a sunny day they look lovely. The red kale is so pretty I almost can't bear to use it all.

Your meal sounds absolutely sublime. My mouth is watering and I just had dinner. The leaves are gorgeous.
