We have a large abundance of this down here in the South during the spring time. It grows like weeds and it is a very tasty green if cooked right.

How to Make Southern Poke Sallet


  • 1Pick poke when it is small enough to be tender. Parboil in enough water to cover greens. This takes about 15 minutes. Drain and rinse thoroughly.
  • 2Cook a second time, until leaves are very tender, drain water off. This 2 step cooking process removes excessive Vitamin A in the leaves which may be toxic.
  • 3In a skillet cook your bacon to obtain bacon drippings.
  • 4Remove bacon, sauté onions. Add drained greens, stirring well. Break eggs into greens and scramble all together. Then crumble your bacon and mix it all together.
