How to make it

  • Tear off and discard any tough stems from the greens.
  • Bring water to a boil in a large kettle and add the onion and salt pork.
  • Simmer 30 minutes then add greens, salt and pepper.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of the sugar and simmer for 2 hours.
  • Meanwhile combine cornmeal, flour, salt and the remaining sugar in a mixing bowl.
  • Slowly add the boiling water stirring constantly.
  • Add just enough water to make a stiff manageable mixture.
  • Wet the palms of the hands then break off bits of cornmeal dough the size of walnuts and shape into balls.
  • Drop balls into the boiling greens then cover and continue cooking 30 minutes.
