New natural blue dye just dropped from Brassica oleracea, a true versatile icon:
@erinbee that is so cool!
As a regular red cabbage home cook, I can see how that might have happened.
@stelepami The frilly heads of purple kale taste just like green kale, so I bet this one tastes like that and maybe a little bit like cauliflower or broccoli leaves.
@erinbee this is awesome! I had a professor who was obsessed with brassica. We read passages of Cato, Varro, Pliny the Elder, and Columella on its awesomeness in class.
