General rule of thumb: If a stem is less then an eighth of an inch thick it
can pretty much be treaded the same as the leaves; cooking time will have
to be adjusted upward, but only slightly. With larger but not enormous
stems - say, those between an eighth and a quarter of an inch - I usually
strip the leaves, chop the stems and begin cooking them first, adding the
leaves only after the stems have begun to become tender. Thicker stems
should be peeled, cooked separately, cooked for much longer than the

Shuck the corn; using a fork or knife, scrape the kernels off the cobs. Do
not worry about getting every last bit. Cut the cobs into chunks.

Simmer the cobs in the stock if you have it, in water if you do not, for
about 10 min. Season the stock to taste. Chop the kale coarsely and add it
to the stock; cover and simmer for about 10 - 15 min more, until the kale
is tender but not mushy. Add the corn kernels and simmer another minute or
two more, just to heat through. Add the margarine if you like, stir it in,
and serve.

Other greens to use: Almost any fresh cooking green you can get your hands
on, but nothing too-too bitter: Beet greens, chard, collards, or mustard
would be first choices after kale.

Makes 4 servings Time: About 40 min.

This was **wonderful**!! Also very quick and easy to put together.
