I also remember Mommie fixing Poke Salad. You go out in the garden or woods and pick the poke. Wash and cook poke salad in bacon grease. Add a couple of eggs when cooking. Cook until tender; add salt and pepper.
(Note: Poke contains compounds known to be toxic to mammals. Please do your own research on the subject of whether eating poke is right for you. A starting place for you may be this Wikipedia article.)
