I just wrote about this on some thread and now my store doesn't have anymore. They said this is supposedly available year round It sure impressed me as to how tender it was. Some woman 87 years told me doctor told her to eat it instead of taking prescription. Had head of cabbage carrots broccolini and some different kind of fruit. At 87, she was pretty wise to cook this for herself. Most people at that age just want to add water. My aunt lived on Lipton Soup most of her life. I don't think had much nutrition. Like eating McDonalds.
