      They are vegetables, green and leafy, like a lettuce but more substantial and need to be cooked before eating. Really yummy!

          Pretty much, with a different taste of course. Although spinach is more tender and you can eat it raw...but yeah, basically like spinach. You would like them :o)

            I'm glad someone agrees!!! My mom is from the south so as a result greens are a part of Sunday dinner at least every other week. But once I moved out, I knew that I WAS NOT going through ALL of that work to make them from scratch. The process is just too long, especially to do on a regular basis. The cleaning, cutting & cooking seem to take forever. So I've quickly fallen in love with Glory. But on holidays & special occasions where family is involved, I definitely "go for the joy of freshly cooked greens".

                I don't think it's too much of a pain. At least not as bad as it could be, but then, I love to cook! :-) I would make them more often ... but FH can't seem to stomach them. I love Kale too and he hates it. I guess it could be considered an acquired taste.

                  You could always try mixed greens. Mixing kale, collards & mustard greens, or whatever combination you'd like.
