The Verdict

Outstanding and delicious. Another big hit, and another new veggie added to the ingredient database (collard greens). The seasonings are perfect, and by the time this stuff start simmering, the entire kitchen smells like heaven. Normally collard greens can be a tad bitter, but the dash of cinnamon, and the sweetness of the tomatoes, really help.

Once again I find that my favorite veggie is the one cooked in a pile of meat.

Thoughts for next time:

  • I think I can fit a whole pound of collard greens into this recipe
  • Let the greens cook just a tad longer, until they are right on the edge between soft and squishy
