FRIED POKE SALAD WITH EGGS AND BACON

by Lynne Skinner
(St. Petersburg, Florida )

I was raised in Florida. When I was little my Mom and Granny would go over to Lakeland to pick poke salad. I remember well my Granny parboiling it until she was happy with it, then she would put it in a cast iron skillet with eggs and bacon and cook until done. It was so good.

My Granny always said "boil it in two waters". Just young shoots, boil and throw out to first water and boil again with new water. I never died.
