Collards Cooking Class

The kids watch YouTube for the music and Lego Star Wars videos. And, while the “Death Star Cantine” clip is funny, I mostly use YouTube for the practical help on unfamiliar tasks: The Kitchener stitch video when I am finishing socks, or the tutorial on tiling that got me through the kitchen backsplash.

Collards are not a vegetable I grew up with, and they are somewhat intimidating. So, to give me some ideas in how to handle the greens in the Week 8 distribution, I turned to YouTube. The first clip is a straightforward primer in washing and cooking collards, and the chef gives options for making vegan collards. The second, for collard wraps, is more unusual. And note that while they call this “raw” vegetable wraps, the collard leaves are blanched before stuffing.
