Aprie's Gourmet Collard Greens

Aprie Allen


I made these Collard Greens for my family for the first time, on Thanksgiving it was a hit. They really loved them, and I was happy with myself. I wanted to prepare them a different way without boiling them in water; instead I stir fried them. They were excellent!
