SHOW-N-TELL
Bring in a variety of fresh greens, lettuces, and vegetables.

 

RECIPE

The best collard green recipe is a secret.   (A certain relative won’t give out the recipe.  Imagine that.)  I can’t be mad this certain relative is not selfish.  So, you’ll just have to prepare the recipe I clipped out of the newspaper. 

 

Collards

There are several ways to prepare collards, so you can pick-n-choose the ingredients.  Use fresh collards even though the recipes say you can use frozen. 

Sauté bacon, onion, garlic, and carrots.  (Or skip the bacon and use olive oil.)  Add a splash or two of vinegar.  Add a cup of chicken broth, the collards, salt and pepper to taste.  Some suggest adding a couple tablespoons of sugar.  Cook approx. 30-60 minutes or desired consistency.

Ready, Set, Go….  You have your St. Patrick’s plans!
