"Pot Likker" and Corn Meal Balls were often served on Sunday's after church. This was considered a real treat for the slaves. A dish like this took longer to prepare and was reserved for Sunday dinner when slaves had more time to prepare a special meal.

In a large pot or Dutch oven, bring to boil 2 quarts of cold water.

Add 1 1oz. package of Wiley's Greens Seasoning to the water.

Wash tender turnip greens in several waters to clean well.

Place greens in seasoned water and let boil 1 hour.

When greens are tender pour off ¾ of seasoned water into separate bowl. This seasoned water is "Pot Likker."

Set greens aside.
