Got overloaded on my CSA with kale, spinach, turnips and kohlrabi. What can I freeze? Do I have to cook it first (blanch or whatever)?
Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks

    turnips and i think kohlrabi last forever. or at least a very long time in a cool dark place in my humble experience.

      you do need to blanch the spinach and kale before freezing.

        the National Center for Home Preserving has these pages:

        (Greens covers both Kale and Spinach, by the way)
