Your Mizuna came to us from Frog Song Organic Farm, less than 100 miles from most of our customers’ homes.
Do not be intimidated by the new green! Mizuna is a Japanese leafy mustard green that brings a bit of a peppery or spicy taste to your table. Known to be the mildest of the mustard greens, its great raw. In fact, you can use it much like you would Arugula — in salads, in pesto, or as pizza toppings. However, you can also saute or stir fry this green much like you would other greens or spinach. On a cold day, it’s perfect added to soups.
This green packs in a nutritional power punch! Just one cup of greens contains 33% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin A and 66% of Vitamin C. It is also a rich source of minerals including calcium and iron. Store your Mizuna in the refrigerator. Be sure to dampen the leaves slightly and place in plastic or glass container to retain the moisture. Too much water or storing in plastic bags may cause the greens to rot. This is where we highly recommend using your salad spinner!
