    It's the season for creasy greens here in WV. Anyone ever cook them? If you haven't, you don't know what you're missing.

    Creasy greens are sowed in August or Sept. and harvested January-April in my area. They look like water cress and taste a little like spinach. They are wonderful and we look forward to eating them just like we do ramps this time of year. I was lucky enough to find some at my favorite fruit and vegetable market today. You cook them like collards, kale or spinach. They take a long time to cook, so I cooked them today for dinner tomorrow. I'll serve them with pork shoulder steaks, hash brown casserole and cornbread.

    I had forgotten all about eating creasy greens. Now, I will be wanting some. Guess, I will just have to pull a bag of collards out of the freezer from my dad's garden!

    Good morning Ky Kate. Please tell me how you freeze collards or any other greens. May want to do that this year.

    We love creasy green but you don't find them in the stores around here. As a child I hated them and had to eat them (the clean-plate theory of parenting); now I love them and can't find them. Life ain't fair!

    Hi

    I like creecy greens, too. I thought I had a can in the pantry, and sure enough I had one can. I get a few cans when I go to NC for a visit.

    I did find this web site where you can buy them, if anybody is interested.

    Not a typo. I think both spellings are correct. I spelled like it is on the can. :-)

    Hi. We could not wait for our Mom to take us in the early spring "pickin" creasy greens along with several other wild greens.......was so good and our first "fresh" meal after eating out of the can all winter.
    In Rose Hill Va you can buy cans of creasy greens at Grabell's Grocery. I buy a case every spring.....

    BaileyvilleWV,

    You freeze them just like any other green. Wash and strip (for collards), blanch, and put into freezer bags. When you cook them, you will add your side meat, salt, and pepper. We have cooked them until they were almost done and then frozen. Blanched works better.

    This is the first time I have ever heard of Creasy Greens. Isn't it fun to learn of different foods from different parts of our country.
    I live in Texas now but was born in Oklahoma and in the spring we use to go Polk hunting. Then there was the dandelion greens and mustard greens.
    That was always a fun day out. Being a child DM or DGM always had to check my bags pretty close. Sometimes a few weeds got in!!LOL
