  • About

Scorzonera is a very peculiar-looking vegetable which tastes delicious. Prepare it as you would a carrot, but drop each root into a basin of cold water with added lemon juice as you finish scraping it. This improves the flavour and texture and prevents discolouration. The dish is excellent for a light lunch or supper, served with a salad.
