Many Saturdays, by the time we get home from the farmer’s market our greens and leafy herbs have started to wilt. After spending a lot of time talking with the experts (JBG customers), here is our method for reviving and preserving our greens.
- Place the wilted greens in your clean kitchen sink and fill with cold water. Reduce the temperature an additional few degrees by adding some ice cubes.
- Allow the greens to cool and absorb water for 15 to 20 minutes then allow them to dry on a dish towel or a clean dish rack for about 10 minutes.
- Place the greens in clean, dry plastic produce bag and refrigerate until you are ready to use them.
