Isaiah working to help me get the big cooking pot full!
The chickens waiting to get some greens too!
I bring them in and wash them... wash them really good cause they have dirt, bugs and grit in them. I wash mine twice.
Then I start the boiling. Be AWARE your house will start to stink, just a heads up if you have never cooked greens. Its kinda hard on the measurements cause I fill my pot full when I'm picking but I would say its around 3 pounds of greens. But I've never weighed them to know for sure.
I put them in a pot of water and bring them to a boil.
Once they are boiling I add 3 tbs of salt and 1/2 cup of Cooking oil
If you were doing a smaller pot, that was say for 2 people I would only use around 3 cubes. You can add them 2 at a time if you taste it along the way to achieve the taste you like. My kids ate them up... Said they were the best greens we've had yet.... That makes this mama happy, especially since my oldest boy didn't really care for greens, but tonight cleared his plate!
If you decide to fix them let me know how they turn out!
