Produce: Root-to-stem

TOP OF THE CHARTS
Root-to-stem is so hot, it made Austin,
Texas-based retailer Whole Foods Market's
list of top 10 food trends.
"Between nose-to-tail butchery and
reducing food waste, a few forces are
combining to inspire root-to-stem cooking,"
according to Whole Foods. " Recipes like
pickled watermelon rinds, beet-green pesto
or broccoli-stem slaw have introduced
consumers to new flavors and textures from
old favorites."
The produce butcher at Whole Foods' Bryant
Park store in New York City includes
root-to-stem items on the store's salad bar,
including Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and
celery seasonal varieties; Melon Seed Agua
Fresca; Butternut Squash with Celery Leaves
and Orecchiette; and bagged broccoli slaw.

That said, for every consumer who
likes the convenience of value-added,
there's one who loves the advantages
they perceive root-to-stem offers.
"Other customers think it's fresher - it's
kind of the image they have," Kneeland
says. "That could be true. And a lot of
them that the flavor is so much better."
Those customers often don't care
about having the roots, stems, flowers, stalks or leaves on a root-to-stem
product, Kneeland says. With carrots,
for example, they might take the tops off
right there in the produce department.

Nutrition, not waste
For Cincinnati-based retail giant Kroger,
one of the main selling points to get
consumers to try root-to-stem is the
nutritional benefits.
"Have you considered how many
vitamins and nutrients go to waste

when we discard parts of our produce
during meal preparation?" Kroger asks.
In the wellness section of its website,
Kroger outlines five tips and tricks for
root-to-stem cooking:
* Use carrot tops, stems of greens and
cores of cabbage and cauliflower
for stocks;
* Oven-bake potato peels with olive oil
and seasonings to use as crispy salad
toppers;
* Shred or shave broccoli and cauliflower stems into slaws and salads;
* Use celery leaves and radish greens in
salads or soups; and
* Replace cilantro or parsley with carrot
greens.
