  1. Blanched greens also freeze well, so buy extra now while they’re fresh!

    Just bring a large pot of water to a boil while you stem the greens and wash the leaves in 2 rinses of water. When the water comes to a boil, add 1 tablespoon of salt (optional) and the greens. Blanch for 2 minutes, until tender. Transfer immediately to a bowl of ice water, then drain and squeeze the water out from its leaves. Chop coarsely. Pack in freezer-grade zip-loc bags and freeze. Use as you would any brand of chopped frozen spinach – Enjoy in soups, quiche, casseroles, etc throughout the year!

  2. The beet greens I purchased from the Farmers’ Mkt two weeks ago had minature beets. I decided to pickle them whole, and now I have the cutest beet pickles!
