Freezing Greens

Look at all this lovely produce that came in my December co-op order!

Carrots, collards, spinach, kale, maitakes, shiitakes, pumpkins, and cauliflower. Honey, too.

Inspired by Bob and Chelsey, this month I ordered a lot of greens in order to cook and freeze them for later. Cooked greens always amaze me—an overflowing pot of velvety ruffles cooks down into a better-tasting concentration of vitamins and minerals.

I learned a new word: potlikker. This is the simmering juices and bacon chunks left over from cooking greens.
