Garland Chrysanthemum leaves may be used raw, in salads. They are also a popular potherb. In Asia, they can be found in chicken broth. They are also commonly found in sautees, combined with other vegetables such as bamboo shoots, snow peas and bean sprouts. Or, cook them along with spinach, beet greens, or Swiss chard. They are good hot or cold as a side dish for chicken or pork dishes. Cook them with some sesame oil, soy sauce and a dash of sherry. Take care not to overcook the leaves, as they will develop a bitter taste. Store Chrysanthemum Garland leaves in a loose bag in the refrigerator. Use them as soon as possible, as they will wilt after two days.
