Know your greens: Sprout Tops

Sprout tops are a type of leafy green that only really come up in winter. As well as being ultra seasonal, you rarely find them in shops so you can be forgiven if you had no idea what these are. As the name suggests, they are quite literally the tops of Brussels sprout stalks. These grow lovely and big, and once cut off, it triggers the sprouts growing along the stalk underneath to grow more abundantly. So when you see sprout tops in your veg bags then in a few weeks time you can expect Brussels spouts will follow.  Kalette tops are the same.
