Fry the bacon over medium heat in a medium saucepan. Set aside, reserving drippings. Put swamp cabbage and remaining ingredients, including fried bacon and bacon drippings, in a 6-quart pot. Fill the pot 1/2 full with water and bring to a boil. Continue to boil for 10 to 15 minutes, until the cabbage is tender. Adjust salt and pepper, to taste. Serve hot as a side dish.
