Re: “Despite Urban Sprawl and Industry, a Durham Family Collard Farm Lives On

I love collards. My friends and family tell me I cook the best they've ever eaten. I got that from my grandmother. One thing I've added to the preparation sorta goes with the best collards have been hit by frost. I don't wait for the frost; instead, I clean them really good, cut them into big chunks, bag them in one of those 2.5 gallon freezer bags, squish all the air out of the bag, and freeze them overnight. They have to be defrosted the next day, or they'll turn to mush. Why freeze them? It's science. Collards have a thick, sturdy cell wall, and the freezing tenderizes them. The cooking takes less time, and that means your house doesn't get so smelly. Long-cooked collards stink. If you can find it, either a good ham hock or hog jowl cooked with the greens is great. Now, I can cook traditional Southern foods; however, never greasy in my house. That's an urban legend about greasy traditional southern food. Southerners cooked with pork because most families raised a hog or two, and that pork in veggies was the main meat protein source. 'Nuff said! Good eating folks.

Re: “What’s Standing Between Rural North Carolina and Reliable Internet Service?

I know how many feel. I live between Benson and Highway 210. The only internet available, except satellite, is CenturyLink. Our speed is 3mbs download. Not only that, our phone service is in and out thus our internet service. Time Warner won't even try to get us their service. Our CL technician lives across the street from a new upscale subdivision. He has 3mbs and the neighbors have 100mbs. Go figure that one out. Getting higher speeds isn't that expensive, but there is no incentive for CL to upgrade their system or for Time Warner to lay the cable for theirs. Complaints are ignored and I can just about hear the service representatives snickering over the phone.
