Bok Choi is a very mild Asian cooking green. It can also be called bak choi or pac choi. It is a cool weather crop and is grown in the spring and fall.
- Wrap Bok Choi is a damp towel or put it in a plastic bag and store in the hydrator drawer of the refrigerator.
- Store for up to one week. Leaves will wilt if allowed to dry out.
- Separate stalks from main stem and rinse leaves and stem. Pat dry.
- For stir-frying separate green leaves from the white stalk. Chop stalks into 1 inch wide diagonal chunks. Cut leaves into small pieces.
- The stem needs to be cooked a few minutes longer than the leaves.
