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.
