Except for the time consuming part of cleaning the greens from my garden, this was an easy recipe. However I still messed it up. I mistakenly added the greens in the beginning, with the salt pork and other ingredients. However, the recipe was very forgiving, and it turned out just fine. I will probably make this again when I have another batch of garden greens, because I have a lot of leftover salt pork.
