 Discard any rough stems from the greens. rinse in cold water WELL. 
 Bring the 2 1/2 quarts water to a boil in large kettle, add onion and 
 salt pork. Simmer 30 minutes and add the greens, salt and pepper to 
 taste. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar and simmer about 2 hours.SIMMER-slowly 
 (I said ) Combine corn meal, flour, 1 teaspoon salt and remaining 
 sugar in mixing bowl. Slowly add the boiling water, stirring. Add 
 just enough water to make a stiff, manageable mixture. Wet the palms 
 of your hands, break off bits of corn meal dough the size of walnuts 
 and shape into balls. Drop balls in the boiling greens. Cover and 
 continue cooking 30 minutes.

 NOTES : Holy Hallelujah!! Sweet Dixie how I love your Southern 
 cooking! I have sat and eaten this and had sweat pouring down my face.
  We often add pepper vinegar, hot sauce, malt vinegar, chopped green 
 onions, crumbled crisp bacon and chopped green chilies, hot peppers 
 and so on. I truly love this recipe. My Mother made this so often. It 
 takes me home again.
