Rebooted Kharoyses (Haroset) and Over-Wintered What?
|Overwintered spinach from Lani's Farm|
Overwintering is the practice of planting late in the fall and then covering the sprouts so that they hibernate over the winter and come up in the early spring, usually right in time for Peysekh. Over wintered greens are sweet and intensely flavored, and I urge you to rush out and try some while they are here. This Passover I used the spinach above from Lani's Farm in this African Spinach with Pumpkin Seeds, and in Sephardic Spinach (recipe coming soon, mertseshem).
I also got some chickweed. Elizabeth Schneider recommends using chickweed in an apple and walnut salad that sounded a bit like rebooted kharoyses, so I served this along with the

Wow, is this the prettiest sorrel (shchav) you have ever beheld? I bought a wjole bunch of this even before I read Jeffrey Yoskowitz's NYTimes piece, which I heartily endorse, as you can well imagine.
I got some of these too. Wow. Just wow.
