Rocket, Local (Arugula)
Rocket is a very ‘English’ leaf, and has been used in salads since Elizabethan times. It has a strong, peppery flavour, and the leaves have a slight ‘bite’ to them.
Store rocket in a loosely wrapped airtight bag, at the bottom of the fridge. Suitable for home freezing.
This green leaf has a rich, peppery taste, and has an exceptionally strong flavour. It works great in pasta or sprinkled on pizza but make sure you only add it at the end of the baking process or it will wilt and you’ll lose its delicious flavour. Rocket is delicious in salads, adding a distinctive flavour. Add it to soups and stews just before the end of cooking time. Before use, make sure you wash it thoroughly.
