Salsify - and where to find it

Harters | Aug 19, 2013 02:52 PM

I don't think I've ever seen this vegetable in the supermarkets or a greengrocers, although I know it's grown here. Does anyone know if there's a regular supply for any of the supermarkets.

Reason for asking is that we spotted tinned salsify at Carrefour in Calais and brought a couple back. Opened the first one tonight and was very disppointed with the bland, almost non-existant, taste - something akin to those tinned white asparagus you always get in Spanish restaurant salads.
