Yka leaves (aka butterfly leaves) are unique bunches of triangular, deep-purple leaves with a tart, slightly sweet flavor. They make a striking garnish that adds green apple-like flavor that can balance rich dishes like those featuring duck, pork, scallops, foie gras, or goat cheese.
Store yka leave in their plastic clamshells in your refrigerator.
Up to seven days.
RECIPES & TIPS
Serve yka leaves raw (after a brief rinse) as a garnish for rich foods like duck, pork, scallops (or other shellfish), bone marrow, veal sweetbreads, goat cheese or foie gras. Other ingredients they pair well with include greens (lettuces, cabbage, etc), mustard, rye, plums, berries (blackberries or raspberries), and/or cherries.
