ESCAROLE- GENERAL INFORMATION


     Escarole  is a flat-leafed cousin of curly chicory  and
has  a  similar  bitter flavor.   The  leaves  are  thicker,
flatter  and  greener,  but  it  also  has  a  yellow heart.
Escarole  is  used  in  salads  and  as  a cooked vegetable.
Treat and use it as you would curly chicory.   Both  chicory
and escarole, when limp, can be revived in ice cold water.
