Once again, I've gotten some mustard greens and have tried to get all of the sand off of them. I have washed and washed and washed. There has to be a better way. First I cut them from the roots. It had rained so they did have extra dirt on the leaves. I put them in a cooler full of water, like someone had told me to do. Then I took them out, rinsed and cleaned out the cooler and repeated the process a couple more times.
I brought them inside and then proceeded to rinse them in my sink. I started thinking that there has to be a better way to do this for just one mess of greens. So the thought occurred to me to ask all of my friends out there in cyberspace. What do I do? Is there an easier way to get the sand from the greens? I haven't cooked any greens lately because of the sand issue. Nothing worse than getting a good ole bite of savory greens only to have a grain of sand find it's way between your molars while chewing. Uggghhh! We'll see how these turn out. If you have any suggestions for me......PLEASE......I'm begging.......please leave a comment below to let me know your tricks for removing the sand.
