Ingredients

3 slices bacon

2 heads freshly cut swamp cabbage (hearts of palm), chopped

1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon salt

1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, fry the bacon over medium heat. Set aside, reserving drippings. Put swamp cabbage and remaining ingredients, including fried bacon and bacon drippings, in a 6-quart pot. Fill the pot 1/2 full with water and bring to a boil. Continue to boil for 10 to 15 minutes, until the cabbage is tender. Adjust salt and pepper, to taste. Serve hot as a side dish.

Cook’s Note

If reheating leftovers, you must bring to a full boil again.
