Collard Greens

So, for those of you who don’t know, I have family roots in the south.

Some of my Kin are Hillfolk. Real ones. Ones that know how to live off of the land, and survive no matter what.

That’s the kind of stock I’m bred from.

So! I decided to embrace my roots and get some dark leafy greens into my diet, I chose COLLARD GREENS!

Collard greens are basically these huge leaves. Like, huge.

I got two bunches, and some salt pork.

The first thing I did was wash the leaves. Water got EVERYWHERE when I did it! It was kind of fun.

Then I tore the leaves into smaller pieces, and washed them again. I salted some water, and set it to boil. When it started, I dropped my chunk o’ salt pork in there, and let it boil for about fifteen minutes.

Then, I dropped in the greens! A little more salt, some stirring, and I let that simmer for about an hour! I dropped in about two tablespoons of real butter, and had some of the BEST greens ever. I sliced up the salt pork and stored some in with the greens so that the flavor kept flavoring. And then I ate ALL OF THEM in one day. Because they were that good.

You know you want to go to the store and buy some, and give them a shot.
