Cluckers N Collards


I've had the itch for some Spicy Wings so this morning I scratched it.   Fired up the Kingsford Kettle and used Suckle Buster's Spicy Peach on half and Chipotle BBQ on "my half"    

Yesterday HEB had some more awesome looking Collard Greens so I fixed a nice pot of them yesterday ennin and they served as my side for the cook.  The best thing about fixing Collards is that the Wiffy don't like them.





I meant to take a pic when I "plate'tid it" but I "ate'tid it"biggrinbiggrinbiggrin

Collards are Greens, such as, Mustard Greens, Turnip Greens and ETC - - - much like Kale but you boil their leaves in a stock. I add jalapenos, own-yawns, chopped bacon or salt pork or a ham bone will work also, plus red pepper flakes, salt, pepper. After the stock has boiled for 30 minutes or more you add the cleaned and chopped greens and reduce the heat to a slow boil or simmer untin tender. I really like Collards best and can eat them as a meal with nothing else, but Cornbread don't hurt nothingbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrin

Although I can't have a large garden area, I try and plant a couple of planter pots with Georgia Collards each winter SEE PICS - - - - they are much better after a frost hits them so these won't get picked until next month some time.  They continue to grow taller and add leaves so I pick what I can eat and then let the rest keep growing.

Greens cooked like you described, I could probably really enjoy. Unfortunately the only ones I've ever been served anywhere in the USA were cooked down to green slime. A friend used to order greens 'n' beans in a local Italian restaurant which weren't too bad - but with decent lasagna, or veal/clucker/eggplant parm, not something I would order instead.

Same here Dave - - - I DON"T order Greens in a Restaurant PERIOD
My two sons will stand in line for my Collard Greens

Oops, one more thing - - my Collards are ?almost? crunchy but no where near slimy.
