J.R. Organics is a family-owned and operated farm located in San Diego County. The farm was established in the 1950s and has been certified organic since 1986. The fertile land of Valley Center, California, combined with sustainable farming practices, produces a wide variety of flavorful fruits and vegetables. J.R. Organics Broccolini has spear-shaped, thin, and tender vibrant green stems with lengths that rarely exceed six inches long. The head is a small loose cluster of florets that resemble broccoli rabe. Compared to standard broccoli, the flavor of Broccolini is understated, mild, peppery, and subtlety sweet.
Broccolini is available in the spring and summer months.
Broccolini "Aspirations" aka Italian Sprouting broccoli, is a hybrid vegetable, not specific to just the broccoli family, nor is it baby broccoli, as it is fully mature when harvested.
Broccolini Aspirations are a more versatile vegetable than common broccoli as they were bred to be more tender but also to withstand higher heat. Broccolini can be sauteed, steamed, roasted, grilled and fried. It makes a great appetizer, pasta or risotto ingredient and pizza topping. Broccolini's flavor marries well with butter, olive oil, lemon, lime, light-bodied vinegars, garlic, tomatoes, chiles, cured meats such as pancetta and prosciutto, flaky white fish, hard cheeses such as parmesan and pecorino or fresh cheeses such as chevre and feta.
