The RIGHT WAY To Cook Greens!
There's a short way and a long way, so no excuses will be accepted for tough, bitter greens!
Hibiscus Mint Tea
Hibiscus is a beautiful flower that does so much for our health and it tastes great! This tea is a phenomenal summer tea and is excellent served iced. It's also good to have warm before bed. This tea is great no matter how it's served, so sit back and enjoy this easy-to-make herbal tea!
Grandma's Soul Food Pancakes (with Plantains)
My grandmother is from Mississippi. I call these her 'soul food' pancakes because she grew up at a time when people who had very little made simple meals taste super delicious. Every Sunday before church, she made these pancakes to get us out of bed. They have a crepe like texture but are still pancakes and are delicious.
Southern-Style Neck Bones
Pork neck bones cooked until tender and succulent — delicious with greens!
Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler
I've been experimenting with cobbler for some time and this recipe is the final result. Loved by all. Use fresh Georgia peaches, of course!
Georgia Country Ham and Redeye Gravy
As a child, I remember my grandparents having a smokehouse. In the dead of winter, when it was well below freezing, a hog would be slaughtered and no part of it wasted. The fresh hams were then covered in a dry salt mixture, wrapped, and hung up for several months to cure. To cook, they were sliced and pan fried, sometimes with a tiny bit of lard, in a hot, black iron skillet. Hot, usually breakfast, coffee was poured into the skillet to deglaze it, making red eye gravy. Redeye Gravy gets its name from the appearance of the gravy after the coffee sinks to the bottom. Serve over biscuits or grits.
This recipe is easier than it sounds. I usually cook the ribs the day before and grill them for a quick dinner the next night. FYI: the sauce is much better after it is cooked. It is not a dipping sauce.
