Cook's Notes

After simmering for a couple of hours, the meat is so tender it's easy to shred. Pull it from the bone with two forks.

    This recipe is a fantastic way to use up greens from the CSA and/or from the garden. Made it twice so far this year, both with different greens added such as kale, spinach and swiss chard. I love it with corn bread and hot sauce on the side. I've even made in in my slow cooker. I did reduce the total amount of liquids, but it came out great.

    This made a great side on Memorial Day. I don't eat meat so we added a tiny amount of liquid smoke and some Bacos and it worked perfectly. We made it with swiss chard, collard and mustard greens with some brown rice. Although the flavor was kind of light it was refreshing served with heavier stuff like hot dogs and baked beans.

    Lynn - Weston Produce, Longo's and Pusateri's all carry mustard and collard greens. Any local Loblaws or Metro will have kale or swiss chard which would also work in this recipe.

    This soup sounds delicious and I plan to try it however mustard and collard greens are not available where I live. What other green leafy veggies can I use instead? Thanks. Lynn in Newmarket, Ontario
