Brussels sprouts

Love them or hate them, Brussels sprouts are easy to grow. Let them sit through a few frosts before harvesting as this will produce a sweeter, nuttier flavour.

Celeriac is a root crop with a distinctive nutty flavour, similar to celery. Rather than harvesting all your crop, any roots not being used straight away are best left in the ground until needed.

Endive is a leafy vegetable similar to chicory. Packed vitamins and fiber, endive is usually eaten in salads, soups or sautéed and added to dishes.
