Mustard Greens

Ever since I can remember I have loved mustard.  It is my favorite condiment.  But it was only just a few days ago that I met the mustard green.  To my friend Laura I owe a vast debt of gratitude for facilitating the introduction at a casual dinner party.  They were in a colander in the sink, draining, and I snatched one up to try it.  The first taste was bitter but as I continued to chomp on the leaf, the undeniable flavor of horseradish began to fill my mouth.

What bliss! I adore horseradish and here is a vegetable- a green, leafy, nutritious, non-fat bit of roughage- that brings with it a burst of my favorite heat!

Laura, I have a new favorite vegetable. Thank you.
