Komatsuna

Komatsuna is a typical Japanese leafy vegetable. Komatsuna, also known as Japanese Mustard Spinach, is a Japanese green that has been known in North America since at least the 1930s. It has thick, smooth, glossy green leaves of an oblong shape.

Storing and Cooking

Store Komatsuna loosely in plastic bags in your refrigerator drawer.

It is delicious used in stir-fries, boiled, steamed, pickled or added to soups, stews, or used fresh in salads. Komatsuna's tender leaves remain delicious, even when plants are large. Delicate mustard flavor makes it nice for braising, too. Its tender leaves, as well as its flowering stems, are used raw or are cooked and have a flavor that falls between mustard greens and cabbage.

Quotes

"Let us never forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most important labor of man. Man may be civilized in some degree without great progress in manufactures and with little commerce with his distant neighbors. But without the cultivation of the earth, he is, in all countries, a savage. Until he gives up the chase and fixes himself in some place, and seeks a living from the earth, he is a roaming barbarian. When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilization."
~Daniel Webster
