Wild Spinach

These wild greens are a rite of spring on Beaty’s Creek, guess that is because they are almost everywhere along Beaty’s Creek. I freeze them and eat plenty when they are young too. These particular greens, to me anyway, taste like spinach with a broccoli rabe bite. This is What’s Cookin on Beaty’s Creek along with some fried cornbread.


Spring Greens AKA Wild Spinach
Enough water to cover

I wash the greens and place them in my salad spinner, then I place them in a caste iron skillet covered with water and cook them until almost all of the water is gone. Now add oil and salt, now you will sauté the greens until tender. I love them with fried cornbread!
