Koppert Cress is launching Baby Clover Cress

25 April 2016

We would like to introduce you to a new cress: Baby Clover Cress. Baby Clover Cress is a decorative small-leaved cress with clover-shaped (heart-shaped, lancet-shaped) leaves and a slightly acidic taste. Baby Clover Cress has a taste that is reminiscent of acidic green apples and therefore makes an excellent ingredient for sweet-tasting dishes, cream-based soups, sauces, and fish. Baby Clover Cress is also great to use in mayonnaise, yoghurt, salads, and drinks such as cordials and tea.

Baby Clover Cress is a member of the wood-sorrel family Oxalidaceae which is predominantly found in Chile and Argentina. The leaves of this plant were originally used to give dishes a more acidic flavour and are a suitable replacement for lemon. The three-leaved clover is a national symbol of Ireland and also represents the holy trinity of Christianity. An even more interesting fact about the product is that it was used in the past to make weapons infallible.
