Tendril is the Night
New in this week's hilbarn boxes are these freshly harvested, organically grown pea tendrils from Mt Nelson, a suburb of Hobart. They're grown in special nutrient-based soils, using a particular pea seed, by Lynda, who used to be a social worker, and Mark, a geo-physicist, who started their business, Naked Carrot, three years ago. We loved the crunch, colour and taste of these tendrils when we first discovered them. So this week, hilbarners get to try them for themselves. Might we suggest: in an egg and pea tendril sandwich, in stir-fries, on top of a salad, or just plain raw. Any which way, they're good for you!
