Growing up in the south, collard greens were a vegetable that was served just about every Sunday and holiday. They were usually cooked with fatty ham hocks, smoked pigs tails or smoked bacon. To top it off "LARD". Now don't get me wrong, I will always love and cook by friend "PORK". I love these greens so much, I decided to do a recipe with less fat and just as tasty. My Mississippi Man, Roy enjoyed them, and he is a hard sell. I hope that you will enjoy this great vegetable. Happy Cooking! sw:)
