Whitehouse Kitchen Garden and An Explanation for Sweet Winter Veggies
A few weeks ago, the RFC did a cooking segment for channel six featuring foods that require a frost to taste their best. After spending some time researching the cause of the excess sugars found in winter brassicas and cold season apples we were a bit hard pressed to explain it easily to others. This quick story about the White House kitchen garden has a sidebar that does a very tidy job of explaining why spinach and kale taste sweeter when the temperature goes down.
