Mustard Greens

Description

Curly Mustard: Mustard greens are the most pungent of the cooking greens and lend a peppery flavor to food. Curly mustard is distinctive for its frilly leaf edges. Mustard leaves are a versatile kitchen green and source of both vitamins A and C and contain several other vitamins and minerals as well as fiber and protein.

 

Chinese Mustard (Flat or Texas): Chinese Mustard is commonly served as a cooked vegetable. Steamed or stir-fried, its soft dark leaves and sturdy white stalks are complemented with butter, pepper, salt or fresh lemon juice. It can be used in salads, either alone or mixed with other salad greens. They are also a delicious additive to soups and stews. Separate the stalks from the leaves, as the stalks will require a longer cooking time. Occasionally, this naturally peppery mustard lends itself to pickling.
