Collard Greens

We found a treat in the produce department this past week.

The collard greens were on sale.

Usually $3.99 for a bag, we purchased it for only a dollar.

My husband was so excited, but I had never tried them.

The first thing I noticed was how long it took to cook them.

Spinach is cooked so quickly, so I thought they would be the same.

They were more hearty than spinach, but I kind of liked that - I have always referred to cooked spinach as swamp weed because of it's consistency.

I bit of butter, and some freshly ground pepper completed the preparation of them.

They were actually pretty good - the texture was great and the taste wasn't bitter at all.

Hopefully they will make it to the sale rack again - they were quite a treat!
