How to Make Tennessee Greens

Step-by-Step

  • 1I a 2 quart mix water, vinegar,butter with salt and pepper and bring to a boil
  • 2Wash greens thoroughly and add to the pot, don't worry if it is above the top because they will wilt down
  • 3In a separate large sided skillet( I use cast iron) fry fatback or bacon til almost crisp.
  • 4After greens are tender, pull them out and let them set in a strainer for a few minutes to drain. Then add them to the skillet and let them fry in the grease flipping them constantly
  • 5Add a little bit of the water you saved if they get dry. When they start absorbing the grease they are done. Eat and enjoy
  • 6The water left over from boiling them can be add to them on the plate to keep them moist. Now that's good eating I don't care what anyone says.
