  • Once washed well, add the greens to the pot.
  • Add 1 teaspoons salt. on top of the greens.
  • Cook on high until water comes to a boil, then turn down to medium heat.
  • Let greens cook, until reduced, and tender.
  • Make sure salt pork is cooked through, at least 45-50 minutes.
  • Drain well, and serve with butter, vinegar, salt, and pepper.
  • Note: Preparation time varies, depending on how dirty the dandelions are and how well you clean them.
