Peppery Chicory

There are two smells that remind me of my paternal granny. The smell of steaming artichokes and that of boiling chicory.

Chicory is particularly tasty with ham and as I knew I’d have left overs I figured I would get some in for over the Christmas.

I’d a bitta ham left tonight and so I made this dinner.

Ingredients:

2 chicories, 1 table spoon of crushed pepper, one handful of grated cheese, left over ham for the side.

Method:

Cut the core and remove the brown looking outter leaves. Halve the chicories and plunge them in boiling water for 10 min.

Rinse and drain.

Put in a pan on medium with a tiny bit of oil and sprinkle extremely generously with the pepper.

Leave it for a good 5 to 7 min and add your handful of grated cheese (I’ve got bit hands).

Let it melt down for another 2 minutes and serve with your ham. Delicious!
