I like most Southern foods with these exceptions Boiled peanut what a disaster to put in my mouth. Black eyed peas my dog would not eat them. Michel just what is poke salad??. All the rest is just great. grits, hominy. red beans and rice( In Mobile Ala ) I had the best red beans and rice that has ever been cooked.

Dave, He actually has a link to it right in the post! I know I had to look it up too.

Yep - I went ahead and put a link to an explanation because I knew there would be people who had never heard of it. I got hooked on it when we lived in Georgia ... we used to be able to get it canned but I haven't seen it in some years and the company that produced it (Allen's) doesn't list it anymore. Other variation on the spelling are poke salit or poke salet.

To borrow from Tony Joe White's song Poke Salal Annie (the intro portion which is spoken):

"If some of ya'll never been down South too much...
I'm gonna tell you a little bit about this,
So that you'll understand what I'm talking about
Down there we have a plant
That grows out in the woods and the fields,
Looks somethin' like a turnip green.
Everybody calls it Poke salad. Poke salad.
Used to know a girl that lived down there and
she'd go out in the evenings and pick a mess of it...
Carry it home and cook it for supper,
'Cause that's about all they had to eat,
But they did all right. ..."

Michael, I had forgotten all about this song. I used to love it. Never associated it when you wrote "poke salad". Once I read the words, it all made sense!

I really should have been born a southern girl instead of a prairie girl transported to the North West!
