Mixed Greens - Southern Style!

You think of mixed greens  and a mix of fresh salad greens comes to mind, right? Not so when you live in the South!  Here, any leafy vegetables that are cooked are referred to as "greens".  

These mixed greens happened to be mustard and collards.  They have a rich taste and go well with pork and cornbread.

My mother-in-law used to cook collards, kale, mustard, and turnip greens.  A combination of two or three various greens then makes "mixed greens".  There's always a piece of ham hock or other smoked meat cooked with the greens.  

My mother-in-law also used her "special seasoning" - bacon drippings, something I didn't realize she put into the pot until much later when I was already hooked on her greens!

Silvia, this is certainly a staple in our southern cooking, especially as the cool weather returns and the greens are at their best!

Tony, old Southern cooking.. you gotta try it some time!

Connie, you are right, a little cold weather on the greens makes them sweeter and better.  I sometimes put mine into the freezer for just a few minutes after I have cut and washed them.
