Collard Greens, Southern-Style!

In case you've never made collard greens, here's a pictorial how-to. Try it; they're good for you, besides which no Southern Belle can qualify for that title if she can't cook up a mess of 'em, with a big ole pan of buttermilk cornbread! If you are really lookin' to impress a new beau, fry up some chicken to go with 'em, real crispy, and make a fresh peach pie . Yum, yum! Collapse )

Gardens grow better when ya watch 'em. You knew that, right?

[x-posting this to scream]

Apologies if this has been posted here before, but a friend of mine just sent me a link to this organization, the SFA:

They have tons of interesting stuff on their website, including a section on the oral history of southern food, where they are soliciting contributions of oral histories, photographs, hand-written recipes, interviews, tales, etc surrounding various southern recipes, country kitchens, cooks, and so forth. They have their own recipe collections, cookbook reviews, all kinds of cool sections.
