beetroot and celery for me

if you want to keep parsley, fresh dill, celery and other herbs longer just wrap them in kitchen paper towels, it absorbs the moisture and they stay green longer

It takes awhile to cook down, but is so tender and delicious when done.

The remaining liquid in the pot is called pot liquor. Along with cornbread it's heavenly,

Thanks, I'll give that a try. I always have bacon, but seldom have ham or ham hocks.

Ha! That's what my step-father used to call someone when he was mad at them, a pot-licker, oh, you said pot liquor. We otta have a thread on old colloquialisms. Of course they would have to be family friendly.

I like your idea about colloquialisms. I really want to emphasize the deliciousness of the real deal. I can understand why someone would be called that. The first one to grab the pot of flavor wins! Much better than sex!

I pick the kale when I'm going to cook it, so it never makes it in the fridge. I find carrots, cabbage, and celery hang around the longest, but I generally don't have veggies that hang around more than a couple of days. I prefer kale stir fried instead of boiled.

I made them. It works fine. Just be careful if you salt them after you oil them. Go lighter than you tend to, because it all sticks. They were good. But I was more impressed with the no-oil microwave potato chips. They took considerably longer than the original post in my smallish microwave, but they were very good. I found that potatoes like Yukon Gold produced a much better chip than russets.

Have you tried beet chips? They are also very tasty.
