It Ain't Easy Eating Greens

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

For those of you who follow my wife's blog, you know we took delivery of our first bin from Farm Fresh Delivery this past week. Basically a bin of random produce. So while there were some typical things we knew what to do with (cherries, green pepper, pluots, etc.), there were a couple of things that neither of us had ever prepared before. Namely, Collard Greens, and Kale.

Today, we experimented with the Collard Greens. Here is our recipe:

1 large onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
8 oz diced ham
3/4 cup vinegar
3 cups water
1/2 cup splenda (or sweetener of your choice)

Mix everything in the crock-pot, and cook on low for 6 hours.

note: we left out the jalapeno, only because Samuel reacts badly to nursing after Cathy consumes hot peppers.

It turned out pretty good -- not necessisarily mouth-wateringly delicious, but it was pleasantly edible.
