Sprout tops are what grows at the top of the stalk of Brussels sprouts. Use them as you would cabbage leaves - as a side dish or in soups and stir-fries. Sorry, some of the sprout tops have a bit of white fly, but we'd rather use the veg than reject the crop and increase food waste. If you spot flies on the leaves, simply rinse off before cooking.

Please note these are the provisional bag contents and actual contents may vary. Wash all fruit and veg before eating.

For a reminder of what happens on the veg scheme over Christmas and new year, check out our blog post.

Allergen information: GC's Hackney and Dagenham mixed organic salad contain a mix of seasonal leaves, including mustard and celery. Ripple salad contains mustard.
