What is pot likker?

pot likker cures what ails you

Pot likker, otherwise known as pot or collard liquor, is the greenish, pork-flavored liquid that results from slow-cooking collard greens (or mustard or turnip greens) with ham hocks, fatback and salt. Pot likker is eaten like a soup, often by adding hot sauce and sopping it up with rolls or cornbread.

Southerners believe this potion to be a vitamin-packed cure for what ails them.
