New Soap & Wilted Lettuce
As I was cooking a large pot of greens, I was reminded of wilted lettuce. Have you ever had any? My grandmother Mary made the best wilted lettuce. She cooked bacon. Cut that up. Added to the bacon and grease a little sugar and a large hand full of fresh garden lettuce. She tossed that around and then put a little vinegar on top. This along with the bacon and grease made it wilt down. A large hand full of lettuce wilts down to very little. If you like sweet and sour, this is a great dish.
