A classic recipe for collard greens that uses smoked turkey to add some flavor. Greens are simmered in chicken stock, then spiced with a dash of red chile flakes.

Use more fresh corn if the ears are small. Canned white corn, drained, may be used as a substitute for fresh corn. When placing the beignet batter into the oil, a 1 or 2 ounce ice cream scoop may be helpful!

Merwin's Shrimp Gumbo

Provided by: Merwin Chambers
This is a recipe for a classic, dark brown, shrimp gumbo in true Louisiana Cajun country fashion. Serve over rice. Browning the chicken pieces in the oil used for the roux adds flavor to the dish. I use the cooked chicken for chicken salad. File is added off the heat to thicken the gumbo. If added while the gumbo is still cooking, it may become stringy and unpleasant. File is ground sassafras leaves. It is available in many supermarkets.
