Recipe for Fried Poke Stalks?

I love cooking local southern greens, poke is one of them but now I heard there is a recipe out there for the stalk also. Any southern folk out there that can help?

Oh no! Sushi, are you a poke stalker?

Sorry commisaryqueen, I live in the south, but I am a transplant and the only greens I like are spinach and beet greens. I hope someone can help though.

I grew up hearing it called poke salit. Never heard of eating the stalks, but the leaves were always a staple at my grandma's house. My job was to go out in the cow pasture & pick it. I never did learn to like that stuff!

My father would harvest the stalks by snapping the tender top part of the stalk off, roll in seasoned flour and fry in bacon grease. YUM!
