Last Saturday Brian and I ventured off to the local farmers market for the first time this year. They had a little bit of everything from banjo entertainment to the sweetest sweets and of course yummy fruits and vegetables.
We bought a lot of sweets! I felt so guilty I went back and bought some collard greens. I guess we looked like regulars because a couple asked us how to prepare greens. I responded with "we don't know yet!" Brian believes you can Google anything. Which you can!
And lastly because of my guilty pleasures the collard greens. Zoey liked them the most! I had never prepared Collards so of cause I place a call to Mom!
I was immediately intimidated by preparing them, however the process was not that difficult.
- Wash very well, I washed them about 5 times
- Cut the stems
- Chop into small pieces
- Place in large pot
- Add enough water that covers them
- Bring to boil then simmer for two hours
For flavor I added Goya Ham concentrate. Gives you that ham taste without all the fat!
I cooked up some cornbread and dinner was served!
Thanks for stopping by.
