BEFORE BOILING:

Immediately before cooking salsify roots wash, we scrape and rinse.

BOILING:

Salsify put a small amount of cold water, if we want this to its taste and aroma passed into broth (eg. Cooking soup). If we cook salsify as a separate dish, toss it into boiling water - thanks to retain most of their juices. Salsify we cook for 20 minutes. Time start to count from the time of re-boil water. Immediately after setting with salt (approx. 2 teaspoons to 1 liter of water). It is also slightly sweetened (approx. 1 teaspoon per 1 liter of water). Boil under cover - this shortens the processing time and reduces the loss of vitamins. To check whether salsify is already cooked, you can stick a fork or a knife. If it falls softly, it is ready.

ONCE BOILED:

After cooking, drain off salsify. After boiling water containing nutrients can be used for sauces, soups, etc.

SERVING TIPS:

Serve sprinkled with browned breadcrumbs and clearing melted butter.

Bon appétit!
