Swamp Cabbage Stew

See the RecipeSarah Karnasiewicz

This recipe is based on one in Ernest Matthew Mickler's White Trash Cookery (Ten Speed Press, 1986), a paean to regional Floridian cuisine that is filled with Southern gems like this swamp cabbage stew. Cooks who don't have access to real swamp cabbage—the heart of the young sabal palmetto, which grows in the central part of Florida—may substitute canned hearts of palm.
