I expect that there will be frost on the greens patch in the morning. It is definitely chilly out right now. But the last frost didn't hurt our greens; it just made the grass and leaves and greens all sparkly
Having been raised on boiled greens with pork fat, I've just lately acquired a taste for mustard greens mixed with lettuces in salads. I love that little bit of pungent bite in
fresh mustard. I also like it on sandwiches.
Now the sycamore leaf in the picture is just for looks. I don't know if they are edible, although it wouldn't surprise me if they were. Many of the plants in rural landscapes are.
Anyway, because I have such an abundance of mustard greens, I'm thinking of making pesto with some of them tomorrow.
I don't see how I could go wrong...blend them with some olive oil, some lemon juice, some toasted sunflower seeds...
I'll let you know how the fresh mustard pesto turns out...
