Greens

I just finished putting collard greens in the freezer. They were beautilull
almost hated to pick them. Got 11 quarts. We gave a friend enough for about 9 quarts. Still have mustard and turnips to do. I love greens and they are so good for you.

Mimiz We love them with ham or bacon. I also remove the greens from the broth and make corn meal dumplings in the broth. Love it but don't make it very often because DH is diabetic And he can't just eat one serving

Mimiz, one cup stone ground corn meal, 2 green onions and enough boiling broth to make a really stiff dough. Shape dumplings by hand and Drop them in the boiling broth lower to a simmer and cook untill done. After you eat the dumplings you have a awesome pot of soup left.

We have been having one meal each week with collards. We are only cutting the lower parts. leaving three layers of leaves and the plant continues to produce.

We have been harvesting just the leaves for about 6 weeks. We harvest the whole plant last night. DH is ready to prepare for the summer garden.
We still have Turnips with huge roots, and mustard greens to go.

Have you ever had a pot of greens on the stove (not boiling hot) and reached in with your fingers, got a big pinch to eat with your hands????? ~~ How about cold in the refrigerator...same thing?????
