2 Cups water
1/2 Cup Granulated sugar
9 Cups (about 30 oz.) fresh Muscadines (without stems)
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
Combine water and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat; cook, whisking often, until sugar is dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes.
Place muscadines in a blender; blend until almost smooth, 15 to 30 seconds. Pour through a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl, pressing on solids, to yield 2 cups juice. Discard solids. Whisk sugar mixture and lemon juice into muscadine juice; chill, uncovered until cold, 2 hours.
Poor mixture into a frozen bowl of a 1 1/2-quart electric ice cream maker; proceed according to the manufacture's instructions. (Instructions and times may vary.)Transfer to an airtight freezer-safe container; freeze at least 4 hours or up to 1 month.

1/2 Cup (1 1/4 ounces) sliced unbalanced almonds
1 2/3 Cups all-purpose flour
1 Cup granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1/4 Teaspoon baking powder
1/4 Teaspoon salt
2 Large eggs
1 Cup plain pumpkin (half of a 1-pound can)
1/2 Cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 Cup (6 ounces) chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 F. Put almonds on a baking sheet or pie pan and bake for about 5 minutes, just until lightly browned; watch carefully so almonds don’t burn. (You can also toast them in a toaster oven.) Slide almonds off the baking sheets so they cool quickly.
Grease muffin cups, or use foil or paper baking cups.
Thoroughly mix flour, sugar, pie spice, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Break eggs into another bowl. Add pumpkin and butter, and whisk until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips and almonds. Pour over dry ingredients and fold in with a rubber spatula just until dry ingredients are moistened. Scoop batter evenly into muffin cups. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until puffed and springy to the touch in the center. Turn out onto a rack to cool. Wrap in plastic bag and keep for 1 or 2 days. Reheat before serving.

1 Bunch collard greens, stems cut out and discarded
1/4 Cup olive oil
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/4 Teaspoon pepper
1 Teaspoon sugar
1 Teaspoon minced garlic (optional)
Wash the collard leaves and stack them (5-10 leaves at a time). Roll them up tightly, then slice thinly so you have a chiffonade of greens. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat with salt, pepper, sugar and garlic. When the oil is hot, add collards and stir often for 15-20 minutes, until collards are tender, taking care not to burn the greens. Add more oil if necessary. Makes 4 servings.

2 Large bunches Swiss chard, or rainbow chard
2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 Large onion, diced
1/2 Teaspoon salt
Pinch each dry thyme and nutmeg
Freshly ground pepper to taste
2 Teaspoons balsamic vinegar, optional
1. Chop and clean Swiss chard: Stack several pieces of Swiss chard on work surface. Remove stems and set aside. Roughly cut leaves into pieces about 2-inch square.

Rinse and chop the Swiss chard stems (about the same size as the diced onion.)
2. Cook the Swiss chard stems with the onions: Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium high heat. Add chopped chard stems, garlic, onion, salt thyme, nutmeg and pepper and cook, stirring often until the onions are starting to brown, 6 to 8 minutes.
3. Add the leaves and wilt: Add chopped cleaned Swiss chard leaves, 2 tablespoons water and cover. Let wilt, 2 to 4 minutes.
4. Cook until softened: Remove lid and continue cooking, stirring occasionally until the Swiss chard is completely wilted and softened, 1 to 3 minutes.
5. To Finish and serve: Remove from the heat and drizzle with balsamic vinegar if using. Serve hot.
