🛍 Product Information：
Binomial Name：Brassica juncea
Other Names：Wrapped Heart Mustard Green
Product Description：Rich in glucosinolates, which have the potential to prevent cancer and neurodegeneration.
Glucosinolates are also known as glucosinolates. From young leaves to mature mustard, the concentration of total glucosinolates will gradually increase, which helps plants defend against pests and diseases. This is also the source of the unique bitter and spicy flavor of mustard. Found in multiple animal studies, it may help kill cancer cells or stop them from spreading, but more clinical research is needed. In addition, studies have found that the organic compounds "isothiocyanates (ITCs)" produced by the decomposition of glucosinolates have neuroprotective effects and have the potential to be developed as alternative drugs for the prevention or treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.

#Should Be / Avoided：
Improves digestion and aids in fat metabolism. Used internally, it helps to improve chest congestion, inflammation, injury and associated pain.
Cooking Skills：Mustard Chicken Soup is an extension of Taiwanese cuisine. In Taiwan's past agricultural society, long-term labor unions rented farmland from landlords during the fallow period to grow mustard greens. The harvest of mustard greens coincided with the Chinese New Year, so it was called a dish eaten at reunions back home. The Hakka people live in hilly areas. In order to preserve food, they preserve excess mustard greens by pickling and other methods.
In cooking, since glucosinolates are easily lost when heated for a long time, it is recommended to shorten the cooking time as much as possible. Moreover, steaming and microwave are better cooking methods to maintain the glucosinolate content. However, if it is boiled, about 90% of the glucosinolates will be lost in the water, reducing the nutritional value.
As for how to remove the bitter taste, we recommend two steps to ensure delicious mustard greens that are not bitter:
Know how to clean first
The base of the leaf tips of mustard greens tends to hide sediment. It is recommended to peel off the leaves one by one from the outside to the inside, place them under running water and wash them with your hands, especially the thick petioles, which need to be cleaned carefully.
- Be sure to blanch it first, rinse it with water, and squeeze out the water before cooking.
- Cook with stock or ingredients high in protein. For example: scallops with mustard greens (use stock), mustard greens patties (use minced pork), mustard greens chicken soup (use chicken stock).
It tastes better this way
It can be cut into various shapes according to cooking needs. If you want to stir-fry, you can cut it into strips or thin slices. Blocks and thick slices are suitable for stewing soup. The fibrous part of the mustard leaves has been removed and can be stir-fried like ordinary leafy vegetables. It can also be chopped and pickled with salt. After the salt water is drained, it becomes a delicious pickle.
・Blanching in salt water: clean and cut into sections, then blanch in boiling salt water. This can reduce bitterness, maintain color, and help soften fibers and shorten subsequent cooking procedures. After cooking, rinse with clean water or soak in ice water. It can increase the crispness and maintain the emerald green appearance. It can be quickly stir-fried and simmered over high heat before serving.
・Remove the hard parts: Before cooking with mustard greens (such as cabbage sum), the outer skin must be peeled off to remove the rough and hard parts for a better taste. Then cut it into pieces according to the cooking method. For example, strips and cubes are suitable for marinating, while hob cubes and thick cuts are suitable for stewing.
How to cook?
Mustard greens are slightly bitter in the mouth at first, but after chewing for a while, the sweetness develops. The transition from bitter to sweet is a symbol of "after all the bitterness, sweetness comes"! Because it tastes astringent and slightly bitter on its own, it is usually stewed with meat with a higher oil content. Quick frying in chicken oil is more suitable for the taste. In addition, during the Chinese New Year, mustard greens and scallops are also steamed or stir-fried together. By combining the sweetness of seafood and the slight bitterness of mustard greens, it helps to remove the fishy smell and enhance the taste, making it sweet after eating.
Many people remove the leaves from perennial vegetables and only eat the stems.
The cabbage sum is sweet enough and suitable for stewing.
