I just broke a turkey down and got it into the sous vide.

Spinach is my green leafy vegetable of choice these days. It's cooked and ready to serve in about a minute. Collards or more labor-intensive than I'm up to anymore.

I gave up on trying to grow baby spinach, that long suffering Mrs Tat, last time , I checked, likes to put in her omelets. The sun hits it here, that didnt used to happen, and it immediately goes to seed before I can even harvest a few leaves.
I am low labor intensive with collards. All I do is check to make sure it has a few bug holes, that shows it to still be organic without pesticides. I may rinse it with kitchen sprayer in the sink during aphid season, but they are long gone now, and sweet anyway.
I just stack the collard leaves and roll um, cause I got um, and cut them into 1/4 in shreds, including the stems, except for the very ends. I then slice the pile across the grain such that the shreds dont dangle from Mrs. TATs teeth, her worst horror. I wilt them or just drop them into whatever soups stew etc. A couple of minute of simmering, with a bit of bacon fat or sausage and they are ready to eat. I tried before removing the central portion of the leaves, but actually enjoy having just a little bit of bite resistance from the stems. If you dont like that a few more minutes of simmer will take care of it. Why lose the fiber? Natures little brooms!
ouch

I don't pretend to be self-sustaining anymore. Just because I can't grow spinach doesn't mean that others can't grow spinach.

Hot dogs and hot cocoa.

I was just suggesting a less labor intensive method for commercial collards preparation, not horticultural advice.

Bone broth and berries.

Your horticultural endeavors are your own affair. When I prepare collards I do it in the traditional southern style.

Once a potlikker always a potlikker in the traditional southern style. That's your affair but, I prefur greens rather than khakis. Collard potlikker, aquaexverde, has has a sort of mystical following, but in my opinion the greens are pretty much like the stone in stone soup. It is what you cook the greens with that matters, for premium Aquapreverde.

And speaking of bone broth, which I assume is from what turkey carcass wouldnt fit in the soux vide machine. Mrs TAT is suddenly very interested in my turkey bone broth, butt likely doo to her colonoscopy prep for tomorrow.

I have found the key to a fun colonoscopy prep is plenty of good reading material and soduko puzzles for all that time in the bathroom. Last one I had, the pharmacy was out of stock and couldn't fill my prep prescription so I had to call the doc's office and get the prescription switched to some tablets. Those did NOT do a very good job. I told the doc when I went in, and he said not to worry, because they hose everybody out when they start.

OK, I admit I opened the orifice of this t,opic, but ya didnt have to run with it on the dinner thread! BTW, they can charge extra for the irrigation hosing as long as it's already a boat payment. Ya have to winterize boats up here. Mrs TAT is on her third Ginger Ale, but she asked for a Mountain Doo, which was obviously a Freudian slip, and an excellent name for marketing a colon prep fluid source.

Wouldn’t Mountain Poo be better?

BTW I’m scheduled to go in for my third or fourth colonoscopy in January. I’ve lost count at this time. But also PIA , I don’t recall the prep being all that bad. For me it kind of just gave me the rocket shot for a few seconds several times until the coast was clear.


Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
