Sauteed Collard Greens (Serves 4-6)
courtesy of Gourmet Magazine

A long cooking time for collard greens is a southern tradition. We sliver ours, then sauté them only for 1 minute, which renders them crisp-tender but allows the greens to keep their color and full flavor

2 bunches collard greens, leaves halved lengthwise and stems and center ribs discarded
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons or so of a good drinking sherry (optional) but I use sherry when I am cooking greens all the time. It\'s especially tasty with Lacinato Kale and Collards.

  1. Stack several collard leaf halves and roll up tightly into a cigar shape. Cut crosswise into very thin slices (no wider than 1/8 inch). Roll and slice remaining leaves in same manner.
  2. Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté collards, tossing with tongs, just until bright green, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.

Girl Meets dirt uses the highest quality, locally sourced, organic fruit, unrefined organic cane sugar, a squeeze of organic lemon, and classically prepares the preserves by hand in seasoned copper pans in their Orcas Island Kitchen! They don't use commercial pectin either, instead they rely on time and concentration for set.
