Trivia, November 14, 2012

As Thanksgiving feasting approaches, remember to eat your leafy greens. Collards are a staple in kitchens of the American South. The name "collard" is a corruption of what older name for the primitive cultivated cabbage of the middle ages, commonly included in pottage and said to sharpen sight, ease gout, and heal ulcers?
