Freezing Greens (Cooked)

Amanda Rose
You can freeze greens raw or cooked. Here is your option for cooked greens.


  • 2 quarts greens


  • Put on a large pot of water to boil.
  • Tear the greens into usable cooking sizes if they are large.
  • Wash the leaves well.
  • Add the leaves to boiling water for five minutes.
  • Discard the boiling water through a strainer or colander.
  • Run cool water over the leaves to cool them quickly.
  • Once the leaves are cool, grab a handful, squeeze out the water, and place the leaves in a quart-sized freezer bag.
