Recipe: A Nice Way of Serving Greens

  •  2 pounds greens.
  •  Salted water.
  •  1 ounce butter.

Boil the greens (Scotch kale, broccoli tops, etc.) in the usual way. When quite tender, strain and press well, place on a board and chop very finely; dissolve the butter in a stewpan, place in the greens, add a little pepper and more salt if required, and stir briskly over the fire for two or three minutes. Serve in a hot vegetable dish.
