Creasy Greens

Have you eaten them? Have you ever heard of them? Creasy greens are a vegetable I grew up with and every spring we went to cornfields in the area to pick them. They are fresh greens found in the spring and if you pick one wrong green you can spoil the entire batch. One green that is smooth leaved will bitter an entire pot.

Since landowners and farms have started spraying their corn patches to kill weeds, the creasy green is hard to find. So, we buy them at local farm stands by the bushel.

A case of creasy greens from Ikenberry’s Orchard in Botetourt County.

We love these greens with pinto beans, corn bread, and fried potatoes. This is one fine country girl meal! A case is a lot of greens, so I clean all of them, blanch them and freeze them after packing enough for one meal in Food Saver bags.

Greens stemmed and bathed twice.

Start looking for them in your local farmers market in March, depending on the weather. It was 1* here this morning so I won’t be looking for any!!
