I have no idea who Edna is, but this sounds like a good way to cook up some Southern greens. From Southern Living, August 2000.


  1. Remove and discard stems and discolored spots from greens.
  2. Wash greens thoroughly; drain and cut greens into strips.
  3. Set aside.
  4. Slice salt pork at 1/4-inch intervals, cutting to, but not through, the skin.
  5. Combine salt pork, water, and pepper in a large Dutch oven; bring mixture to a boil.
  6. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour.
  7. Add greens, and cook, uncovered, 17 minutes or until tender.
  8. Serve with a slotted spoon.

Who doesn't love collards cooked with salt pork? Reminds me of my Grannie! Enjoyed with fried catfish, cornbread and black eyed peas!
