It's a bitter sweet Thanksgiving this year. At the root of it all...it comes down to the collards! Our family is big on food, Imagine that, but we do have history with food. Jim's Dad, Pop, worked in the food distribution services. Oma.. my wonderful
mother in law... the best baker and cook, not to mention my mentor, and last but certainly not least... my brother in law, Mike Tripp.
Mike passed away in June of this year, he was a brilliant chef, he cooked with his heart and his love of food... only equaled the gratification of pleasing others by his efforts.
Nothing in life made me happier than anticipating Mikes' collard greens every Thanksgiving! This year... I'm up to bat... Mike had shared his collard green recipe with me... and in his honor I feel compelled to share it with my AR community!
Cutting of the vein!
Stacking of the leaves!
Rolling of the stack!
Cutting of the roll!
Washing of the greens!
The cast and crew
In the pot and on the way to Oma's house!
