Actually, I like cukes, but they make me belch.

Don't know that I've ever had a collard green.....

3. You'd know it if you'd tried them
Collards are one of those things that you either love or hate, and it helps if you grew up with them. Many southerners love them, and when they hear me say that I hate collards, the reactions range from shock to sympathy to outrage.

7. Actually, I didn't start eating them until a couple of years ago
Because my mother hated them and constantly told us how nasty they were. I tried some at a restaurant and loved them. :)

I'll offer my understanding sympathy to you.

5. Collard greens...........yummy
Taste kinda like cabbage.
Gotta use bacon grease in the cooking.

Goes pretty yummy with some fried chicken, black-eyed peas and fried okra, washed down with some sweet tea and followed closely with some peach cobbler/pecan pie (either works for this meal).

Come on down. I'll fix you up! :hi:

8. Go to a middle eastern market and get Armenian cukes!
The seeds are what make cukes gassy...taking out the seeds eliminates most of the belching!

I LOVE collard greens..I'll eat all of yours for you :)
