I have added a recipe for Arugula Pesto! We really like pesto and it is very easy to make and freezes very well! The funny story that goes with this recipe is as follows:
We participate in a Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) and we had got a lot of this green leafy stuff that I was not sure what it was. Although I love to cook, I have never claimed to be an expert on food. I do love the internet because I can look up pictures and usually figure out what it is that we are going to eat. I also can find recipes and the best way to preserve these yummy foods.
So, I had several bunches of this green leafy stuff ... I did a little research and decided that I thought it might be arugula, so I found a recipe for pesto and made it! It came out great, the kids and I ate some and then froze the additional three pints.
Now here is the funny part ... the next day I went to the co-op and there was a big display of arugula, which looked nothing like the green leafy stuff that I had just used as arugula. HHHMM! So the next CSA day there was a newsletter that told what was in this weeks share and we determined that the mystery green leafy was called: Mizuna! Who knew!
