The younger leaves cook more quickly, but the older good condition  
leaves are also good.

They can steam by selves or be added near end to rice cooking, or be  
added at to sauteed onion/garlic and cooked a little longer.  They  
cook in about same time as spinach, can probably do anything to them  
that you'd do to spinach.

All best wishes,

Karen
