NOTES ON STORAGE & USE

Arugula can go proper into the fridge in its bag. It is extremely tender, so wash gently to keep away from bruising the leaves. Whether it is moist, you possibly can spin it dry in a salad spinner or in a clear dish towel.

All greens want to remain hydrated, so that they’ll should 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 type of greens storage. There are fancy plastic baggage that retailer greens longer, or you should use Vejibags (my selection!) created from cotton cloth, when gently moistened maintain the greens in wonderful situation.

WILTED GREENS?

It occurs on this warmth when the greens get dehydrated. To not fear! Fill a really giant bowl with chilly water. Dunk the greens into the water and allow them to float round in there till they “perk up”. It may 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.
