This leafy green is a member of the brassica family, and the whole plant is edible including the stems and seeds. In our CSA Shares you’ll find the long thick-stemmed leaves which are similar in taste to turnip greens and best steamed, braised, or sautéed. Mustard greens have peppery flavor and add a mild spicy flavor to most dishes.
Store in a loosely wrapped plastic bag in the refrigerator.
Wash thoroughly using a salad spinner to remove any lingering dirt. Remove stems, if they are tough. Tear or chop leaves into bite-sized pieces for steaming, braising, and sautéing.
