The fresh foods have so much more flavor anyway. Maybe not the condensed, artificial flavor a lot of people are accustomed to, but it's refreshing flavor.

LOL I thought that might have been an asian trying to say pork. That confused me too.
 Quoting: eekers


I thought you were educated.


It is a plant that grows in the south. It is very common in Georgia. It grows on a stalk and has green leaves. The plant can reach several feet tall by summer. I have seen them 6 feet tall. In the summer it produces red berries that birds love. The leaves are boiled, rinsed then cooked in bacon fat or lard with onions or eggs. It tastes like spinach. The tender stalks are chopped, coated in flour and fried, and tastes like okra. I have eaten tis wild plant all my life, and love it! It is said you can not harvest the plants once they produce berries. Old wives tales are once the plants produce berries they are poisionous, but birds do eat them and are not affected by them.

chillax, skippy, no need to insult.
thanks for the info, I've never heard of polk. I'll give it a shot, sounds like it'll taste good. I actually did a google search for it when you first ask, but didn't find anything on it, do you know if it goes by any other name?
 Quoting: eekers

Polk salad. [link to www.urbandictionary.com] It's actually poison if not prepared correctly. I have a lot growing on my property and cooked up several messes last spring. It's good cooked with eggs and onions, I think; but a lot of work for very little.
 Quoting: OCD Chaos Theorist



No need to call me skippy.
There seem to be different points of view about whether it is Polk Salad or Polk Sallet or Polk Salet, so I just used the word Polk. I have no idea why a plant would be called "salad" if that's not the normal way of eating it. I don't know, maybe Polk Salad Annie ate them like a salad. I picked the tender leaves and boiled them for a while and then changed the water and boiled them for about another hour. I used salt/pepper/sport pepper vinegar and it was very tasty. They have much more body than spinach. I'll try cooking the stalks like okra, which I love, to see how they taste. BTW, I cook okra in the same flour/corn meal mixture that I fry catfish with.
The polk grows wild all around this area, the southern Ozark mountains.

Be careful with the stalks, the red is where the poison is concentrated it seems. In fact the leaves should be no longer than 6" I think. Though I just guesstimated when pulling the leaves when I was cooking it.

I was clearing out an overgrown area of my property and just started ripping leaves off to cook, both large and small leaves. That might be why they were ultimately very ..umm toothy to eat. Very tasty and the center vein wasn't tough at all. I've had them with eggs and it was very good. Unfortunately I'm allergic to meat so I've never tried meat and polk or spinach. I make a pizza at least with homemade crust at least twice a week, and I might try some polk or spinach on that for funsies.

Just kidding, not one of those threads. Just wanted to make the point that you can eat filling foods and still keep it low cal.
It wasn't raw spinach, btw, I sauteed some garlic in coconut oil then steamed it in the pan with a lid on.

What's your favorite quick, nutritious meal?

it's cool man, it's just the snarky "i thought you were educated" thing was unnecessary. I don't get why people on this board take the first chance they get to sling insults.

Ever try it with lamb, duck or veal? Now my curiosity is piqued
 Quoting: BioReaper


I was clearing out an overgrown area of my property and just started ripping leaves off to cook, both large and small leaves. That might be why they were ultimately very ..umm toothy to eat. Very tasty and the center vein wasn't tough at all. I've had them with eggs and it was very good. Unfortunately I'm allergic to meat so I've never tried meat and polk or spinach. I make a pizza at least with homemade crust at least twice a week, and I might try some polk or spinach on that for funsies. I'd like to explore more vegetarian pizzas as a non meat eater doesn't get a lot of really tasty meals.

Has anyone ever had poison ivy? My husband always talks about this but I have never had any. But the poison ivy is a little different from the USA that he's talking about but I'm not sure. He makes a joke about the hardest part is gathering it, my grandmother used to make it but I never had any.
 Quoting: nah


ooh, never knew that was edible! interesting!
 Quoting: eekers


I never knew that either until my family was discussing it one day. I never heard of people in the USA eating though but I know it is a poison ivy or oak, not sure which one is edible or both.

Now I am craving my grandmother's watermelon rinds. mmm, she made them in a sugar water and it thickened up like a jelly, sooo good.

Just kidding, not one of those threads. Just wanted to make the point that you can eat filling foods and still keep it low cal.
It wasn't raw spinach, btw, I sauteed some garlic in coconut oil then steamed it in the pan with a lid on.

What's your favorite quick, nutritious meal?

i hate spinach but i love collard greens...

go figure.

spinach reminds me of the muck off of a pond and it feels like slime in your mouth.

my father, bless his heart, used to make me eat it and i would gag.

so funny because I haven't had collard greens until recently (the past couple of yrs) and they've become a fave! try steaming them with turkey bacon or onions and cutting them up fine. to me, they taste super buttery.mmmm

as far as the spinach goes, it depends on how you cook it! steam it with pasta and it's perfect! no sliminess, just perfection. the trick with all these "nasty veggies" is what you cook them with or how you cook them. most of the time it depends on the texture. trust me, I'm a master at making bizarre veggies taste great! so tell me what you like and don't like and I can usually recommend a good combo.
