Author: 
Edna Lewis
  • (1-pound) piece slab bacon
  • 3 quarts  water
  • 3 Pounds  mixed greens such as collard, mustard, and turnip
  • 2/3 Cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 Cup  yellow cornmeal
  • 2 Teaspoons  packed brown sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon  unsalted butter
  • 1/2 Cup  whole milk
This "assembly of greens," as Miss Lewis would say, has a supple texture that works nicely with cornmeal dumplings.
