I’m going to give it to you straight- I, honestly, have no idea what makes these greens “Country Style”. Most of my childhood was set in suburban/inner-city areas.

You can taste when someone has prepared a dish with love. Usually, food that is made by a person who wanted to make it tastes amazing. Food made begrudgingly tastes, well, not so amazing. These greens are slow-cooked with minimal babysitting, which means you’re not fussing over them in irritation. That also means they taste of your love.
