Rapini

Rapini Vegetable Seeds

Featuring heirloom, open-pollinated, non-GMO, untreated seeds.

The flavor of rapini has been described as nutty, bitter, and pungent, as well as almond-flavored. Rapini needs little more than a trim at the base. The entire stalk is edible when young, but the base becomes more fibrous as the season advances.

Rapini is widely used in southern Italian cuisine,in particular that of Sicily,Calabria Campania, Apulia (Puglia), and Rome. In Italian, rapini is called cime di rapa or broccoletti di rapa;in Naples, the green is often called friarielli. Within Portuguese cuisine, grelos de nabo are similar in taste and texture to broccoli rabe.Rapini is also popular in the Galicia region of northwestern Spain; a rapini festival (Feira do grelo) is held in the Galician town of As Pontes every February.

Rapini may be sautéed or braised with olive oil and garlic, and sometimes chili pepper and anchovy.[8]It may be used as an ingredient in soup, served with orecchiette,other pasta, or pan-fried sausage  Rapini is sometimes (but not always) blanched before being cooked further.

In the United States, rapini is popular in Italian-American kitchens; the D'Arrigo Brothers popularized the ingredient in the United States and gave it the name broccoli rabe. Broccoli rabe is a component of some hoagies and submarine sandwiches; in Philadelphia, a popular sandwich is roast pork with broccoli rabe and peppers. It can be a component of pasta dishes, especially when accompanied by Italian sausage.
