great, with a few tweaks, Guest gerrard

I had recieved two cans of mustard greens in a box that i got from the food pantry. Not knowing what to do with them I stumbled upon this recipe. I thought it was great with the exception of the nutmeg. After trying a few spoonfulls on some toast I added some garlic powder and it was great. Next time I will omit the nutmeg and add garlic powder.
