Boiled Alexanders

    10 min

    The stems and buds of the Alexanders plant are a flavourful wild food, abundant during spring months particularly in the southern coastal counties. The Alexanders stems need little cooking and hold their own as a side dish, particularly with seafood.

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

    1. Trim the stems and remove any fibrous skin from the outside (treat similarly to celery). Roughly chop into bite-sized pieces.
    2. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil then add the Alexanders stems. Boil for 3 to 4 minutes until just tender, but still with a little crunch. Drain.
    3. Toss the Alexanders in butter and season to taste. Serve immediately.
