How to Make Tennessee Greens

Step-by-Step

  1. I a 2 quart mix water, vinegar,butter with salt and pepper and bring to a boil
  2. Wash greens thoroughly and add to the pot, don't worry if it is above the top because they will wilt down
  3. In a separate large sided skillet( I use cast iron) fry fatback or bacon til almost crisp.
  4. After 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
  5. Add a little bit of the water you saved if they get dry. When they start absorbing the grease they are done. Eat and enjoy
  6. The 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.
