How to Store:
Mustard greens should be stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. They should keep fresh for about three to four days.
How to Prepare:
- For basic mustard green preparation, wash the leaves and fold in half with the top of the green folded inward.
- Cut along the stem and remove. Or, if you plan to cook the greens for a long time, such as when using them in soup, you can keep the leaves intact with their center stem.
- The easiest way to clean the leaves is the same way you would clean spinach: place the mustard greens in a large bowl of tepid water and swish them around with your hands. This will allow any sand or dirt to become dislodged.
- Remove the greens from the water, empty the bowl, refill with clean water and repeat this process until no sand or dirt remains in the water (usually two or three times will do the trick).
- add young leaves to salads.
- sautéed mustard greens with lemon juice and pine nuts.
- Add to a pasta salad
- serve cooked mustard greens with beans and rice.
- sauté with sweet potatoes and tempeh and serve over cooked grain.
