 Categories: Beans grain, Heaven, Kitpath, Lowfat, Fruit
      Yield: 6 Servings
      1 c  Fresh sour cherries; pitted
      2 ts Sugar; (2 to 3)
      1 tb Vegetable oil; cold press
      3 c  Sliced onion; sweet
  1 1/4 ts Salt
     12 c  Fresh greens; leaves only
      1 c  Dried sour cherries;
  CHERRIES: or canned unsweetened sour cherries, drained.
  SWEET ONION: Vidalia, Maui.
  GREENS: collards, red mustard, arugula, kale.
  Soak dried cherries for 15 minutes in hot water; drain.
  Place fresh or canned cherries in a small bowl and sprinkle them with
  sugar. Let sit for about 10 minutes.
  Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet. Add the onion and 1/2 teaspoon
  of the salt, and saute over high heat for about 5 minutes. Turn the
  heat to medium, cover the pan, and let the onion cook until very
  tender (1bout 10 more minutes).
  Begin adding the grees in batches (as much as will fit), sprinkling
  each addition with about 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir and cover between
  additions, letting the greens cook down for about 5 minutes each
  time, to make room for the next batch.
  When all the greesa re added and have wilted, stir in the sour
  cherries and cook for just about 5 minutes longer. Transfer to a
  platter,and sprinkle the dried cherries on top, if using. Serve hot
  or warm, being sure to include some of the delicious cooking juices
  with each serving.
