Are you near Tri-cities? Or are you further down near Cherokee?
I had always thought that was "polk salad" as in the Elvis song Polk Salad Annie.
I think the various types of cabbage tend to be under-rated in the scoff stakes. I imagine mostly because of the way the poor little things were cooked by our female forebears,, schools, the armed forces and various other institutions. Boiled for nine hours.
I only found out cabbage was green in my early twenties. Thanks for all the grey slop Mum.
Nearer Cherokee than Tri-Cities, but specifically just outside Sevierville on Douglas Lake.
Do you think it is wise to trust the spelling of a Mississippi born Army Sergeant?
Strictly speaking the song was by Tony Joe White.
I reckoned a pair of good'ol'boys from Louisiana and Mississippi probably knew a bit more about soul food than a Londoner.
Seems both spellings are acceptable though.
Do you really have to boil it three times to destroy the toxins? Hardly seems worth the effort.
I'm surprised my mother never cooked it. "Oooh, a leafy vegetable you can boil three times. Thats 27 hours in the saucepan. Bring it on".
