True Southern Style Collard Greens
How to Make True Southern Style Collard Greens
- I buy my collards prepared at my farmers market, they come bagged all nice and cut up ready to go! But you can buy a couple of bunches and cut the stems out, chop the leaves and then the all important washing! This is to get any dirt and what have you off of the leaves. Sometimes they can be a little dirty!
- After washing your prepared collards (removing any stems you find) place them in your large stock pot, top with water, vinegar, salt and Hamhock/ham. They will fill your pot plus some, but just start them boiling and it will wilt down quickly, then you can place your lid.
