Recipe Source: Albi, Johnna and Catherine Walthers. d of being able to do any of the other tasks on my list, and believe me there were a lot of them. I also despaired of being able to eat the food I was working on - I was chopping the collard greens at the time and it is extremely difficult to make a main dish of collard greens when you have bled all over your collard greens. It is really, really not a good idea to serve food that you have bled on. Ever.
The thing is, when I looked down at the greens, wrapping my finger in paper towels and duct tape, there was no blood to be found. Not a trace. I can certainly tell you that there was plenty on the paper towels. I can only attribute this to divine intervention. Or maybe quick reflexes.
