Back Burner Greens

Greens are a Southern Thang. They are quite tasty and good for you too. Traditionally, they are made with a pork fat for flavor. I offer a recipe that is healthier and will accommodate any diet, including Vegan. I used Kale when I made these, but you can use most any green you like....except spinach...it is not sturdy enough to yield the same result. The green of choice in the South ......Collards. Serve these in a little dish that will hold some juice. The juice is called "Pot Liquor" in the South. You sop your home made cornbread in it. This is a real "Down Home " recipe. Good Eatin'.
