Hereof, can you freeze arugula without blanching?
Freeze it. Effective freezing of arugula is not as simple as it is with other herbs. With spinach and similar greens, all you have to do is blanch the leaves and freeze them in bags. You can then place those pieces into freezer bags and store them indefinitely.
Likewise, can you freeze fresh greens without blanching? The recommended process to freeze greens is to blanch them first. However, it is not required. You can freeze your fresh greens and other vegetables without freezing them if you like. The best way to freeze greens without blanching is to “pre-freeze” your greens before fully freezing them.

You will know if its gone bad just by the look. The leafs will get dark and look wet. If, for some reason, you are still questioning whether or not it is good, smell it. If it smells spoiled, nasty, and the peppery smell comes off as sour, it is no good.
