Title: Bitter greens with sweet onions and sour cherries
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.
