Generally available all year from Europe and the USA, also known as Witloof. Store between 32-34 degrees F, keep covered from light, and dry. Store away from odoriferous foods like onions, garlic, and the like. Approximately 2-3 pieces per pound. May be enjoyed both raw and cooked. This member of the chicory family with its milky-white leaves that are crisp, tender, and make the perfect serving platform for hors d’oeuveres, and the European dish of baked endive wrapped in Black Forest ham with cheese, is a dish that everyone should enjoy at least once in life.
