Yesterday evening, my husband came home loaded down with mixed greens which our neighbor had blessed him with on his way up the driveway.
Turnip greens. Mustard greens. Collard greens.
I’m not a huge fan of greens. I’d never even heard of “greens” before moving to the south! But Jerry likes them. And they are really good for you.
So, today I’ll be putting up this big box of greens which is currently overcrowding my countertop. I’d hate to let it go to waste!
I’m a little nervous about canning them. Not sure what canned greens will taste like. But heck, I’ll give it a try! I’m also gonna try dehydrating them as well.
I found a really good article on how to preserve collard greens (and all other types of greens) by either freezing them, canning them, or drying them: Three Ways To Preserve Greens. I figured I’d just point you their way for now, until I’ve tried it myself!
If all else fails, the chickens will love whatever we don’t eat.
Do you like collard greens, or other mixed greens? I’d love to know how you guys preserve them!
