They didn’t have a category for potlikker lol. Good old fashioned juice from the collards spiked with a heap of turmeric, some freshly cracked pepper and a dash of Himalayan sea salt. Sometimes I crack an egg from the farm in it too. Mmm. #alabama

What are the health benefits? Sounds interesting!

I don’t know the benefits but I will have it as a broth I keep about 16 or so oz.’s in my freezer. I don’t believe it has a lot of calories and will tide me over until mealtime. I will be adding Turmeric next time.

A raw egg?

@bobella88 it is SO good if you like earthy, salty, umami type flavors. @JackieSpahr yassssssss honey you would! @katmoore1 As far as health benefits I'm unsure. I think Jesus loves you more when you drink potlikker though :) But seriously the turmeric is anti-inflammatory, antiviral and anti fungal just to name a few. Check it out! You should take it (as a spice added to food or as a supplement) with black pepper (bioperine they call it in the supplement form) and fat to unleash all the benefits! @Chitownsnyder Definitely low on calories and for me a high fat no carb meal replacement. You could do this with high quality veggie or bone broth, add coconut oil, add an egg plus the turmeric and black pepper. It's divine. @Katlyn Smith For that method I will heat in a sauce pan and drop in a farm fresh egg and either swirl for an egg drop kind of feel or let it just cook whole until its firm but still gooey on the inside. It continues to cook as I eat it (the broth is hot) and I usually eat the egg first out of the mug and then drink the remains. So satisfying!

Does The egg cook? And is it sweet or savory? 
20 Apr 18 by member: bobella88
@bobella88 it is savory and delicious. The base is basically a rich veggie broth. The egg does cook--to your liking but it keeps cooking the longer it stays in the broth. I'll try to take a picture.

What a great idea - egg drop soup made with pot liquor. If you beat the egg well, then pour it in slowly while stirring with a fork, you will get thin, cooked "streamers" of egg all through, delicious!

Thank you I will try it

@gz9gjg yes! The egg makes it a meal. Sometimes I like the poached whole egg method and other times I do it as you described. It's a very forgiving experiment--no matter what it tastes good!
