NOTES ON STORAGE & USE

Arugula can go proper into the fridge in its bag. It is rather tender, so wash gently to keep away from bruising the leaves.

All greens want to remain hydrated, in order that they’ll must be saved in an hermetic container within the fridge. Whereas I attempt to keep away from plastic in my kitchen, plastic baggage are wonderful for this sort of greens storage. There are fancy plastic baggage that retailer greens longer, or you should use Vejibags (my selection!) constructed from cotton cloth, when gently moistened preserve the greens in wonderful situation.

Gadgets which have tops & bottoms (such because the turnips and radishes) must be separated. Lower off the tops and retailer individually. The tops of the radishes will be made into numerous recipes and the tops of the turnips are my most well-liked inexperienced to together with my eggs for breakfast. See recipe at proper.

WILTED GREENS?

It occurs on this warmth when the greens get dehydrated. To not fear! Fill a really massive bowl with chilly water. Dunk the greens into the water and allow them to float round in there till they “perk up”. It could take as much as quarter-hour of being submerged. That is okay and good for the greens! Shake off extra water and retailer in an hermetic container within the fridge.
