      I wanted to love this as I love collard greens and peanut butter but it just didn't do it for us. Served it for family dinner night and everyone at one serving but I think that was to be polite. Sorry! Maybe it was because I served it to a table full of Southerners who like their pork fat with greens!

      Wow! The peanut butter adds a really special flavor to this! I did cook my greens longer but I do like mine tender. Made for ZWT4 Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles. ~Sue
