other dog Posted December 31, 2009 Share Posted December 31, 2009 I'm ready- got the black eyed peas and greens. Black eyed peas are supposed to bring luck in the new year, and the greens money. So I got 2 cans of greens.Actually I had only seen canned creeces at one other store around here, and that was in Appomattox. Found these yesterday at the local store 2 miles from here. We used to go out and cut our own, when you could find them. They're my favorite, but kind of hard to come by. They grow flat on the ground and we'd take an old knife and cut them off level at the ground, put them in a sack, and bring them home and try to get all the dirt off before you cooked them. A huge pot of them will cook down to a little bit, but they're mighty tasty cooked with some seasoning meat (hog jowls for New Years), a few potatoes, and topped with chopped onion and vinegar.Anybody besides DoubleL ever eaten these?
