    Seeing a lot of collard recipes for New Year's...that's so neat! Although I did grow up eating collards, we always had the cabbage for New Year's..for folding money...and blackeyes for luck! The collards sound really good!! Thanks for a great post...

    Okay. You got me curious to try collards with my blackeyed peas for New Years, Cook. I think its the cabbage that made the difference. Now....up here in the north will I even be able to find those collards at the Giant Eagle?!
