1/4 cup ---None

Preparation / Directions:

Greens: Put on a very large pot of water to boil Add a large, thinly sliced dry yellow onion Salt to taste Either a Tablespoon or so of Maple Syrup or Sugar Dried red peppers to taste 2 or 3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil When this gets boiling nicely, add: Several bunches of Turnip or Mustard Greens or a combination of the two washed and picked. Young, tender greens are best, but if you can't get them, do the best you can. Cook this for 40 minutes to one hour, depending on how they cook and how done you like your greens. Meanwhile, during the time the greens are cooking, make the cornmeal dumplings: Cornmeal Dumplings: 2 cups water 1 cup yellow cornmeal pinch of baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 egg In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the cornmeal, baking powder and salt, stirring vigorously. Keep stirring until the cornmeal is incorporated. Take the pot off the burner and add the egg, beating vigorously, fast, fast, fast. You don't have to, but I like to put in about 1/2 bunch green onions sliced up in 1/4 inch slices at this point. Dip your hands in a bowl of cold water and scoop up golf ball size or smaller amounts of the dough and form it into a ball. Drop the ball into the boiling pot of greens. Repeat until all the dough is used. Turn the dumplings over gently during cooking and continue cooking until the dumplings float. Serve hot. If you would like, you could top the individual servings of greens with Black Salsa, the recipe follows: Black Salsa: 1 or more cucumbers peeled and diced 1 or more firm tomatoes peeled and diced Sliced green onions 1 Tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon salt Black pepper to taste 1/4 cup vinegar (use cider, wine, or balsamic) 1/4 cup water Mix all this up and put it in the refrigerator until time to use it. This is excellent as a topping for greens and for black eye peas. Note: You are going to have to cook these greens the way you cook them because I do not eat meat and this is the way I cook them. So, please, by all means, cook the greens the way you want to cook them, but just be sure and use more water than normal when cooking t
