Can you freeze arugala?
I purchased a huge one pound package of fresh baby arugala leaves. I've been eating them up as salads, but there's still so much left. I'm afraid they will go rotten. Do you have suggestions? How do you prepare them after they have been frozen?
I don't know about freezing but I have used arugula to make pesto. Just find a pesto recipe and substitute arugula for basil. That will use a lot of it. (And you can freeze pesto.)
I agree with act3 try finding recipes that you can use arugula in and then you probably be able to freeze whatever you've made from it. you can always try giving some to family and friends.
Dont think you can freeze it as when its defrosted it will probably be a bit soggy!
To freeze arugula, follow the same procedure you would with other greens, like spinach. Wash and remove any damaged pieces. Drop into boiling water for 2 minutes, cool them immediately in ice water, drain thoroughly and place in freezer bags. Remove air from the bag (to prevent freezer burn) and place in your freezer.
