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

Step-by-Step

  1. Pick 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.
  2. Cook 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.
  3. In a skillet cook your bacon to obtain bacon drippings.
  4. Remove 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.
