winter greens update


The winter greens mum helped plant are doing great. There are three different leaf lettuces, komatsuna, chingensai, chrysanthemum greens, mizuna and mustard greens. They're all great but I am loving the mustard greens. They really do have a flavour that is just like chewing on mustard. In a good way, I swear! We have been eating them in sukiyaki, nabe, stirfry, salad and even blanched as hitashi with ponzu sauce. And they rock every which way. I can't work out why they don't sell them in the supermarket. Or do they sell them and I have just never noticed? Hmmm maybe there's an unexploited market for me to turn agri-entrepreneur? In all my free time, yeah?

My local grocer does sell mustard sprouts, which aren't quite the same, but a little similar. Maybe you've found a new niche market!

You and your mom planted really good winter greens together! They look like they're coming in really nice. : )

Maybe that's what I need now, some mustard greens. Everything tastes so bland at the moment it's like I've lost my eating mojo!!!

achan- there are mustard greens, wasabi greens and ruccola to boot. You need some flavour before we hit the endless hakusai and daikon months!
