Aloha Oahu Fresh members! This week we are pleased to again bring you some new items in your Oahu Fresh bag. You’ll be receiving collard greens, daikon, mint, lettuce, tomatoes, taro, and tangerine.
Collard greens may be familiar to some of you, especially if you are originally from the mainland or if you have eaten at Soul Patrol in Kaimuki! If you are not familiar with them, you will find some easy tips and recipes below for cooking and enjoying them. Collards are very nutritious, with plenty of vitamin K, A, C, folate, and manganese. For more specific information on their nutritional value, see the World’s Healthiest Foods_Collards. Collard greens are also well known for their anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
Collards are similar to cabbage leaves. Tips for cooking them include thorough washing, cutting the leaves to equal sized pieces, so that they cook at the same rate, and not overcooking them which tends to make them bitter and sulfurous.
