I have been so behind in posting lately. So, no apologies or explanations as to why, just a post about collard greens.
Hubby wanted collard greens with Thanksgiving and I had never had them, but wanted to try them. The day before Thanksgiving I went out and got all of the ingredients. While at the store, I met a lady name Miss Mabel. She was giving the produce manager a hard time because all of their collard greens were unappealing. I introduced myself and told her I was going to be trying them for the first time. She helped me pick out a good bunch of greens and gave me some pointers on how to make them. On Thanksgiving Day, I began following the directions and somehow misread the recipe which caused me to add too much salt (1/4 cup instead of 1 tablespoon). Hubby tasted them when I was done and couldn't even swallow the bite because they were so salty.
Determined that I was going to make collard greens, we went out the day after Thanksgiving to get more. After some searching I found a store with some greens left. Using the method that Miss Mabel had showed me, I picked a nice bunch of greens. On Sunday, I made them again with a nice pork loin and this time I used the proper amount of salt. The came out tasting fantastic. I loved them and they even met hubby's approval (he is a tough critic).
I have found another veggie that I will definitely cook again. They are not quick to make, but definitely worth the time.
