Very unusual plant that can be used in two different ways…
Celtuce is a stem-lettuce with a Chinese origin. It’s an unusual plant that can be used in 2 ways:
The leaves can be picked whilst young and used like a cut and come again lettuce. As the stem elongates, the rosette formation changes to a small tuft of leaves on the top.
The second use is for the stem which has a mild celery-like flavour. Peel off the outer layer and slice thinly. This tastes amazing in salads or can be lightly steamed.
