Recipe Name: A Big Pot Of Greens Submitted by: Administrator

Base: Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

3 Turnip, collard or mustard
greens or a
3 Dried small, red peppers
up to 4
1 Cup(s) Chicken stock or water, up
to 2
1/4 Pound(s) Salt pork, optional
1 Tablespoon(s) Sugar, optional up to 2
Tear off thick stems and place greens in the sink. Cover with water.
Sprinkle a small amount of salt over greens and stir. Allow water to
settle a few minutes. Carefully lift out greens and place in a
colander or large bowl. (If you have a double sink, the other side
works great.) Rinse out sink to eliminate any grit that may have
dropped from greens. Return greens to sink and cover with water again.
Allow any remaining grit to settle and unplug drain so that water runs
out. Tear large leaves into pieces and place in a large stockpot,
Dutch oven or saucepan with a lid. Without shaking off too much water,
add greens to pan, along with whole, dried red peppers. It may be
difficult to get all the greens in the pan, but cram them in. Cover
pan with lid and place over medium heat. Cook just until leaves wilt
and greens fit easily into pan. Add just enough water or chicken stock
to almost cover greens. If desired, add salt pork. Bring liquid to a
boil, reduce heat and simmer until greens are tender, about 30
minutes. Stir in sugar during last 10 minutes of cooking. Makes 10
servings. Posted to recipelu-digest by molony <> on Mar
