Picking frozen greens

Picking frozen greens

Mustard, Swiss chard, and kale freeze all the time in the garden. They thaw out and keep on growing.

Answer: The greens turn into goo. Edible if cooked right away, but not really up to snuff.

Moral: Pick your Thanksgiving greens now and put them in the fridge for tomorrow's feast!
