Most greens such as Kale, Spinach, Swiss Chard, and Mustard Greens can be prepared in many different ways (sauteing, boiling, eating raw in salads, and even baking). We love to cook in our house and there are several  “foodie” blogs that help in our efforts to preparing meals with these various greens.  Here are a few of our favorites!

    1. Here’s an idea for you…

      Bacon
      2 or 3 bunches mustard greens, trimmed and chopped
      2 tablespoons white vinegar (or more to desired taste)
      2 teaspoons sugar
      salt
      2 cups chicken broth

      In a large skillet over medium high heat brown bacon. Add chopped greens to the pan in batches and turn until they wilt, then add more. Add vinegar and cook a minute after all greens are in. Season greens with sugar and salt. Add chicken broth to the pan and cover. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer greens 15 to 20 minutes then serve.
