Creamed Collard Greens

Post  justmecookin on Sun Mar 08, 2009 9:36 pm

Creamed Collard Greens

4 pounds collard greens (4 bunches), tough stems and ribs removed
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 large shallots, minced
2 large garlic cloves, minced
2 cups heavy cream
Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 pound Parmesan, grated

Bring a very large stockpot of water to a boil. Prepare a large bowl of ice water. Add half of the collard greens to the boiling water, a little at a time, and push them down into the water. Let the water return to a boil, then cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Using tongs, transfer the greens to the bowl with the ice water to reserve. Repeat with the remaining greens. Drain the greens very well and squeeze them dry in a kitchen towel, then finely shred.

In a very large skillet, melt the butter. Add the shallots and garlic and cook over moderate heat until softened, about 6 minutes. Stir in the cream and simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half, about 25 minutes. Add the greens to the cream and toss until warmed through, about 3 minutes. Season generously with nutmeg and salt and pepper. Add to serving dish and sprinkle with the Parmesan. Makes 8 to 12 servings

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1-2/3 cups evaporated milk
1 9-inch pie shell
2-3 tablespoons butter, cut into tiny cubes

Preheat oven to 425°. Combine first 8 ingredients in order listed. Mix until well blended. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Dot with butter pieces. Sprinkle with extra cinnamon. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce oven to 350° and continue to bake for 40-50 additional minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on rack. Makes one 9-inch pie

Pie Crust
1-1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chilled shortening or butter, or half of each, cut into cubes
3 tablespoons cold water

Combine flour and salt in bowl. Add shortening or butter and blend with fork, pastry cutter or your fingers until mixture is fairly coarse. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, gently mixing dough after each addition until dough forms a ball. (Dough can also be prepared in food processor.

Use the pulse button just until it starts to pull away from the sides. Be very careful not to overwork the dough.) Place dough on a lightly floured surface and roll into a 10 to 11 inch circle. Line 9-inch pie pan. Flute edges. Chill until use.

If pie recipe calls for a prebaked pie crust, preheat oven to 425°. Prick sides and bottom of pie shell with fork. Place pie weights, dried beans or rice on a piece of foil or parchment paper in bottom of shell to keep pastry flat while baking. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until crust is brown as desired.
