    Collard Greens

    I love collards. I had some today (little country soul-food place) that were awesome . Possibly the best I ever had. Anyone else like collards, or soul-food?

    My wife makes them with a ham hock. I think these were probably made with ox tail.

    Love collards

    Just picked up some beets on my way home from work. Got a funny look from the checker as I bought a 20pk of beer, a 32oz beer, and some beets

    Different from collards but I like beet greens as much as the beets themselves. Also all the chards and kales

    Rinse them, tear them up a bit, let them stay wet in the colander, saute some mushrooms and onions and garlic along with the collard/kale/chard stems, add pepper and some Braggs or soy sauce, little bit of red wine if there's any, maybe a bit of mustard. Add the greens once the stems are done and let the whole thing steam for a bit.

    I could live off the stuff. Hell, I do live off the stuff (that and beer).

    JC, you have any kind of garden? Most greens are wicked easy to grow and even a few plants would be almost more than your family could eat.

    Kale and collards are going in the garden this year. The rhubarb has already turned into a monster again.

    Which kale David?

    I have some 3 year-old Red Russian kale, Green kale, Red Swiss Chard and Golden Swiss Chard. They're getting huge but as long as you keep the aphids off them they do fine and put out tons of new growth. Top whenever they bolt.

    We went with green. Kale finds itself on our plate at least once a week. It mates well with sun dried tomatoes.

    Aphids are not a problem in NJ, thanks to the ladybug invasion.

    For fresh tripe, it's very subtle, mild, not quite like a meat taste, but I can't put my finger on what else it tastes like. Nothing mineral or iron like such as other organs like liver or kidneys.

    I actually like pickled tripe much more...I cook it with stewed tomatoes. I ate it often when I was young, as it was one of my fathers favorite meals. For a first timer....fresh tripe might be to offensive....esp the odor when cooking it unless you cook it in a stew heavy with other flavors.

    Anyone remember the old Campbells Soup flavor called "Pepper Pot Stew"? That was basically a light version of Menudo. Those little off-white cubes in there are tripe. I haven't seen Pepper Pot Stew on the soup shelf of the market in years.

    The texture of it will fend off most American palates...as Americans are usually a lot more conservative in what they'll eat. It's like...3/4 jello like with 1/4 elastic mixed in..a very slight rubbery texture that breaks down quite easily.
