Our garden has produced several rounds of mustard greens and arugula. The family has sold several bags at the Farmer’s Market. This week the weather has topped 90 degrees and I think the greens have run their course. I was happy to be able to fix them twice this week, knowing it will be in the fall before we have them again.
Everyone has their favorite recipe for cooking greens. I like cooking them on the stove in a cast iron skillet. I sauté 3 or 4 pieces of bacon until mostly done and then throw a chopped onion into the skillet. After the onion is soft, I add ¼ cup of water and stir. Place greens in skillet and cover. I keep the temperature around medium to medium high while the greens are rendered down. I usually cook them for about 10-15 minutes, or until soft. Give them a good stir, making sure to incorporate the bacon and the onion. Serve with vinegar if desired.
