Old-Fashioned Collard Greens
Potlikker is the liquid that remains in the pot after greens are cooked. It’s packed with vitamins from the greens and is often enjoyed in a small soup bowl with cornbread. Some Southerners dunk cornbread in it; others crumble the bread right into the bowl. No matter the amount, it’s never acceptable to throw out the potlikker.
